IF it's based on the current M2, then this car should be a slam dunk. But, I thought I'd read that the 2 series gran coupe body style would debut w/ the next gen 1/2 series platform which will be FWD based (likely on the same platform as the Mini/x1/etc).

Torn, as I am about to pull the trigger for an order on an F80. But I cannot wait for this to maybe become a reality.

Iím hearing allocations for F80 are drying up - do you have one lined up? If not you better act quickly.

This is not Gran Coupe specific, but this forum doesn't allow searching for "M2", so...


I had read the rumors that the M2 would have a "CS" version coming out for 2019 that contains the S55 engine. What I didn't realize is that assumption is this will *replace* the existing M2, not augment it. So the N55 M2 s soon dead.

So the M2 will soon be faster, more expensive, and more fartier sounding.

That would be nice.

The current owners are claiming their car is a classic and their resale values won't be affected.

If the new one is priced in the stratosphere they might be right.

FC: don't you want a sedan to put the kids in? Also vaporware vs. plans. Just do YMB so I can be a buyer later. Prefer no sunroof, but not a dealbreaker.

Funny. Someone in the adjacent company just got an M3 in YMB. It's not a bad color, but I much rather have Sakhir. It's too light a blue.

Let's just say I never warmed up to Laguna Seca blue for the same reason, so YMB this is farther from ideal than closer.

If they had offered LeMans or Imola, I would have rather taken one of those.

I never liked these clown colors... At all.

Give me a nice dark blue, please.
