    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Thank god, I have the most normal (almost boring Smiley) kids on this planet, they have no desires of tattoos or similar stuff. Yet. Smiley They are still young (14 and 17), things can change fast. Both are pretty stubborn though (like their dad), so probably nothing will really change.

    They have an acquired taste though, like I said...son wants a Mustang V8 (alternatively the M2 or a 240i Smiley) and my daughter, she always makes fun of my wife buying expensive handbags, wants this LV handbag (or whatever this is) if she finishes school with a certain very good grade (which apparently she will).

    He said he would be OK with a Ford Mustang (V8 of course) as well, what a modest boy I have. Smiley Smiley

    Ford must be doing something well with their Mustang. My 15 year old son also wishes to have a Mustang at 18. 

    Not that I would buy him such a car ....

    If you would, I'll buy him the mustache and earring!

     

    The moustache is growing. Looks like velvet :-)) 

    no earrings , but he wants tattoos .... and that is coming from a kid that has a style that is sporty and clean cut .

    Get prepared with your daughter :-)

    My son thanks you for calling him a girl Smiley

    Of course I will, she deserves it. Good kid, fantastic marks in school, very modest as well (she could have nice stuff but she always shops at Aeropostale and similar stores) and she usually hates brand stuff (unless it is really good quality) but this handbag (is it one? Smiley) fascinated her so much, she badly wants one, so this is going to be her Abitur (Switzerland: Matura) gift. I still struggle to understand what Abitur translates into the US school system (high school diploma?). Her results will very likely enable her to study medicine in Germany (we have a very strict restriction for medicine) but she isn't really into it, actually she doesn't know what to do. She is very good in Algebra/math (surprisingly, in the beginning, she was struggling with simple percentage calculations), so she could also become a software engineer or similar (apparently there is a huge lack of women in this domain) but right now, she just wants to finish school and enjoy some free time. 

    Btw: This bag is 3750 EUR (incl. tax) in Germany. Smiley This sounds a lot but many kids here in Germany get trips as a gift for their high school diploma which probably cost the same or more, so I'm good. She still travels with us, so...good for her. Smiley

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Is there a price yet?

    Edit:  Price coming Mid-May and will not be way higher than M2.  Wonder what the CS and CSL will be like...

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    "The M2 Competition costs £49,285 in manual form and £51,930 in dual-clutch guise, compared with the £46,740 starting price of the outgoing M2. First deliveries in the UK will begin in August."


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    51K GBP lol. Waste of money if I've ever seen it.

    Thank you!  If this pricing model (5.4% higher) holds for US, the M2 Comp with European Delivery (5% discount) would be $54k USD.  That is less than base 718 Cayman 2.0L and more than 35% extra power (and 50% more cylinders)...

    I wonder how they will spec and price the forthcoming CS and CSL models??

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Nice !! Don't know how I feel about the connected kidneys on the grill though. I was at my BMW dealership the other day and drove a white M2 they have on the lot again for the second time and that thing is just such a blast ! 

    On another note I was considering changing the kidneys on my car to black like on the M cars.


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I'm really interested in the CS version too. Hopefully it will be lighter. 1650kg or 3600 lbs seems a lot for a car of that size. 

    My current 1M has about 70,000 Km on it now. Its the perfect city car for me. Small enough to fit everywhere. Most people don't know what it is, so it doesn't get any attention. And its shockingly good in snow, with a good set of snow tires.

    I think only the CSL will be much lighter - but maybe there will also be CF roof, brakes, seats, and fenders on the CS?

    2018 White 911 GT3 - Delivery scheduled for April.


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Interesting car. And knowing what kind of discounts BMW has in Europe recently, seems that it will be a good offer soon after release... 


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Boyko23:

    The discounts are usually for older cars or models not high in demand. The first M2 was sold out for a year, discount was 1-3% for very good customers, zero for others. So don't bet on a discount for the new M2, unless it doesn't sell well.

    I got offered a new (production slot) RS3 sedan at a ridiculously low price a couple of weeks ago (car...or better said production slot...has been sold already) for a summer delivery, so I assume Audi has trouble selling the sedan in Germany. The hatchback seems to be a different story. I like the sedan more but I can see why people prefer the hatchback.

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I kind of like this thing. Now they have to bring a M2 CSL! indecision


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I’ll be swapping my daily driver from the M2 to M2 Comp as soon as they start being realistic about pricing in my local market (no discount at the moment).

    I agree. I am sick to the teeth with the shit box. It’s a works car and because I work from home two decent cars seem a waste. When I go out I am in the GT3 all the time. So, the shit box has low miles but still looks a messSmiley...

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I think we should have daily driver. Something less extravagant than all our fancy 911s and GT cars etc. But doesn’t mean you need to drive a Zafira 😂. Go get yourself a fun little Fiesta ST or something like that! Besides, how can you show off your hairy chest and then turn up in a Zafira!

    Smiley I hate slow daily drivers. Got one once because I thought "hey, I'm just driving to work and back and not much else" but it was a huge mistake, three years of hating the commute to work and back home. Never again. At least the car needs to be fun in some way, even if it doesn't have a 500 hp engine. Smiley

    Right now, the cheapest and most fun daily driver is the Ford Mustang GT (5.0) in my opinion. Don't expect premium quality though, our convertible rental in Hawaii almost fell apart and it only had 41000 mls on it. Smiley Still...great engine sound, great engine, sporty driving, real fun for little money.
