    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Gauss:

    Is there an M2 CSL coming ?

    There is some better M2 coming (not sure if it'll be called CS or CSL, but it will be faster and more expensive than Competition).

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Latest rumor on the M2CS [according to people on Bimmerpost]:

    M2 CS:

    • M2 CS appears to be the final name
    • 445hp
    • both manual and DCT
    • CF roof standard
    • Colors: Black Sapphire, Alpine White, Hockenheim Silver, Misano Blue
    • Black alcantara/leather mix likely the only interior choice
    • Alcantara steering wheel optional
    • Unique interior trim
    • CCB optional
    • Coming later this year

    A true successor to the 1M? My guess is the car will be about 100lbs lighter, which would still put it at an astonishing 3600 lbs. 


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    A little disappointing that there aren't more improvements over the Competition.  Nice that Manual is available though...

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    The M4 CS never really justified its price over the Comp model, so I think BMW fans would still be happy with this car.  The hp figure of this M2 CS is more than the M4.

    I’m not sure they will be satisfied. I didn’t get the sense that bmw fans were satisfied with the M4 CS either.

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Depends on price I suppose.  Would you buy a $85k-95k M2?  Maybe if they limit it to 1000, they will get takers.


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I would consider an M2 CSL at that price with huge weight loss and exciting emotional (and objective) performance.

    It would have to be faster and more fun to drive than a base Carrera.

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    A M2 CSL would be very interesting and tempting and that was actually what I was hoping for but seems that BMW does not have the guts to do it yes


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I kind of get the feeling that BMW is milking the M2 "cow"...nothing less and nothing more. angry

    I still think it is possible that we see a CSL in the future.  It seems that BMW wants to have 4 tiers of M Cars (not including stuff like M240i, etc.).  So maybe M2, M2 Comp, M2 CS, and M2 CSL...

    BMW-M-CSL.jpg

    Image from Bimmerforum as well. My guess is the CSL models will come without back seats and that would really limit sales. Partially due to practicality and partially due to the other competition at that price point [GT4]. 

    The price will be rather high for a 2 series. I'm looking at this car to replace my 1M [city car]. To find a small 4 seater which is fun/exiting/interesting is proving hard. Everything else is larger. The current M4 is a big car. Strangely, the other car I'm looking at for replacement of my city car is an old 993. Driving relatively slow around the city most of the time anyways, so why have 450HP that I can't use? Of course, it won't be as reliable, roomy  or tech filled. Put some snow tires on it and have fun.

    I usually do not see a lot of "standard" M-cars on the racetrack - the M-cars I see are mostly (older) M-cars tuned in particular and only for the racetrack. In other words, I have not seen that many (none!) M4 CS having spent sundays on the track and mondays commuting to the office...However, what I see as a trend in my neighborhood are "track cars" used as DD ... Buuuut, I am a sucker for BMW as DD, so I am looking forward to these new models.  


    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    An M2 CSL would definitely be tempting, bring it on indecision

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I read that an M2 CSL will not happen, does anybody has different information?

    Also, the M2 CS is featured in the current issue of Sport Auto, I think it is a great product. Anybody ordering one? Will it really be limited to less than 3000 cars?

    It is really cool that the car can be ordered with manual transmission.

    Is there more news on it? I'd always thought I'd be interested in one, but that bloated OTT look of the M2 puts me off.

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    It is mentioned in the Sport Auto that it will get 450hp, 4.0s from 0-100 (DKG), around 40kg leighter than M2 Comp but I assume this is with the ceramic stoppers. Hockenheim full lap 1.55.8 with Cup 2s.

    I assume it will be presented over the coming 6 weeks

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    Friend of mine ordered one after a sneak preview. Apparently the typical CS treatment, not that much change on the outside and lots of €€€. With some options around 90k....limited though.

    90k?? Smiley

    You can get a 997 RS for that money... Or a very decent M3 CSL for less.

    Re: BMW M2 Rumors

    I don't think the €90.000 asking price for a loaded car  is unreasonable if you think that a Carrera starts from €105.000 before essential extras and offers 385 PS the same as a 997.2 CS of 10 years ago.

    You can always compare and choose used over new, but this applies to all cars.

    And I think that a M2 will be a defining car in the future as it will be the last small RWD M-car.
