Looks awesome, mine arrives in the next 6 weeks or so.

I’ve a similar sized plate which Ive asked the dealer not to screw on, where abouts you get your plinth from? Exactly what I’ve been looking for.

How does it deal with the traction?

What did you have before? Does it feel overly similar?
I'm obviously still running it in so I can't as yet fully comment on traction. I had a stage 2 450bhp M240i with LSD. This just feels like a totally different car it is amazing. I cannot believe how different it is, I wasn't expecting it to be so much.

Did you drive a pre-comp?
F20 M135i - most toys
F80 M3 - even more toys - gone!
F87 M2 - most toys

No but I have owned several M cars prior to this.

Happy days. Looking for a replacement for my 240, want something a bit larger as I miss the size of my e92 M3. However the M2 Comp pound for pound, is probably the best (and versatile) car out there. Just wonder if its a bit 'samey' particularly in terms of the interior and design.

Yes the interiors are similar but that's it, the outgoing vanilla M2 is a totally different driving experience to the M240i. Its an M car and drives like one, an m240i isn't and doesn't. Before anyone starts the M240i is a cracking car but it is IMO way off an M car experience.

Is the M2C worth what £20k more than an M240i, well if you have £20k extra which is knocking about of cause it is. If I am honest £56k may have been pushing my justification limits but I am not going to sit hear and tell anyone they should have purchased an M240i as it offers better value for money, that's not what its about IMO.

If the M2C offers even 5% extra in terms of fun factor over the existing M2, frankly Its worth every penny extra (still not keen on the wheels though :D )

There is nothing samey at all in the design or interior from a 240i it is totally different car Image

I had a m235i for 2 years and am now in an M2, they are very different in the way they drive.

Boring question - Is there front ISOFIX? I can't find anything about it online. I assume there is rear x2 ISOFIX as the seat is shared with the 2-series?

Aren’t isofix only ever in the rear? I can’t say I’ve ever seen them in the front.

I think it was an option on some BMWs. If you search "option 470" for example.
