have you got a cost for ceramic coating? will the dealer do it? often thought about having it done to stop bird dropping stains as live near sea and often come out of work to this.....

Never go to a dealer for ceramic coating, always go to an indy professional, plenty of good ones around. A new car detail with a stage one polish will be around 600 quid.

Luckily I’ve got a friend who does it. I tell the dealers to not even wash it before it’s delivered.

It’s def worth getting if you can get a good price. Everything comes off so easy. Just wash and dry, no polish and looks new every time.

Just finalised my order via Park Lane.

Thundernight with M Technology, Pro, Comfort and Technology Packs. Oh and those daft M things in the doors that light up. I did give some thought to the adaptive dampers but really I like to keep the set up options to a minimum, I had the G82 for 24 hours recently and the menu choices were somewhat overwhelming for my tired old mind! I was tempted by the new M3 but the build came in at over 80k and it doesn't actually fit in my (pathetic) garage.

My M2 LCI went back to the supplying dealer for a good price so I have a bit of a wait now, April 2022 :shock: but the deal was good and I would rather have it after the winter.

I think the plan is to run this for 2 years and then get in to the new M2 at the LCI stage for what will probably be the last hurrah for petrol powered
M cars.

Adaptive suspension doesn't requiring any fiddling with settings. You either have adaptive suspension, or not. If you are referring to the additional rebound setting that you also get with adaptive suspension, you can choose when this automatically gets applied, or leave it off. But you'd still have adaptive suspension working for you.

Appreciate of course that it's another matter entirely whether one would choose to have stock, adaptive, or aftermarket.

That's good news! Ordered mine a week later than you I think so indeed looking at a 22 plate.

Any talk from dealer about options having to be taken off due to chip shortage? ( Lots of talk on US forums of this)

Damn, judging by that I'm probably not going to get mine till May... Does hopefully give me a chance to see them in person before my builds locked in.
Currently got mine ordered in black, really tempted to change to purple but want to see it in person 1st

Nope no news about removal of options re chips, though I have got the M Performance price list to browse... :)

Just been given my build slot/week! Week 5, so a week after yours!

Dealer reckons end of March delivery. So definitely a 22 plate.

Great to hear. I was told they wouldn’t schedule any builds until the launch date was set. Have you heard anything about this date?
I presume they are holding back on a date until they are certain they will have some cars in the country for the press and a few lucky customers.
I’m watching the progress of build for American customers on https://g42.bimmerpost.com/forums/forum ... .php?f=928
and progress does seem slow, teething problems on the line perhaps?
