My 2c.....for what is worth.

I love my current 66 plate M2 and aim to keep it at least another 1+ year.
It has been the perfect car for me and I love owning it.

In another year or so it will be bought (pay GFV as only £13k) and I will look at the M2C. But I may also look elsewhere (Porsche) - or may just keep hold of my M2 until I decide to move on and save up some £££s.

I like the new M2C and if I was after a new car now I would definitely get one.
BUT the existing car is that good, I dont really want to get rid.

In addition, the one thing I personally never wish for is more power. I dont track the car and find the current power levels more than adequate for daily driving (which is what I do) and slightly hard work in winter/wet after years of owning quattros etc.

When I test drove the M4, i found the power a bit too on/off and really wouldnt fancy that much power on UK winter roads.

Just my 2p......

I still may end up in a M2c, but am not in any great rush to check one out. I realised quite some time ago, that always chasing the next 'new shiney' is a futile task in the modern world. Car/phone/watch/whatever.

Good morning (aka Boggy)

I'm a long-standing member of PH's & Seloc (Lotus), however I'm now switching back to BMW so this is my first post "Hello".

Currently own an M240i (66) but I'm after a new M2, anyone know of any deals on a new car (PCP). Either trade in the M240i or sell privately.

I think you've got unfortunate timing Boggy. With the M2 comp now released there are waiting lists again (you can't order the pre comp car anymore), and as far as I understand there aren't any or many re-regs going around of the LCI. So I guess you may need to get on a waiting list or go used.....

I’m happy to wait. My LCI M2 is only 8 months old and its Plenty quick enough for me particularly after the Eventuri, forge intercooler, Remus exhaust and tuning box. Quite like the M performance parts for the Comp but most can add to my LCI anyway. I’m still hoping there is a proper CS/ GTS run out which is worth waiting for.

I think this seems to be the generally train of thought from existing vanilla M2 owners, no rush to go out and change. I have finally got a car that I actually really still enjoy after 12 months of ownership and I cant see that feeling changing just because of the M2C, i've driven M3's and M4's etc, been a passenger in a DBS amongst other fancy cars and I can honestly say I get in my M2 and it still ticks every box for me. Love it!!

I think like you after years of 'wanting' the next best thing and justifying it with ridiculous reasons. Ive now finally realised that actually its just a merry go round, something to try and avoid but ive also realised that making compromises can also be a costly error too.

Its like phones, they will always improve to a point that the gains are really marginal.

So you can keep waiting for the next best thing, or jump in and enjoy now.

Summed up my thoughts exactly, however, I am partial to a S/S Rolex sports watch (or few :wink:)

I do think my original 2017 M2 is still a very good car and is very close in chassis dynamics to the E30 M3's I had a good few years ago now (had both E30 M3 Evo II and an E30 M3 Sport Evolution).

If I were to change it would have to be for something considerably better and for me the only car that is significantly better is a 911 GT3 which for now is way out of my price range, so the M2 is staying put for the foreseeable future.
