My local BMW dealer is having a CCA event this Saturday through. I am polishing the car up today and going over 2 hours before they open tomorrow to get a good spot to display it. Will see if anything happens.

I think the 240 is a great car. The engine is on par with the non comp M2 and the convertible is tempting. I just love the look of the M2 more. The bulging hips really make the car for me. Now an M2 vert would really be sweet.

I saw that also and while at a good price right now it will quickly rise above what I would want to pay for that car. Hell I would rather have a 2019 M2 with the S55 engine for less then this will go for.

Maybe Af will cut you a Mudgeons bargain on his... if you can live with the SMG trans.

It would be a third car for most here with kids and who wants to drop $65k on a third ďfunĒ car. Iím still ok with the 2018 with the N55. Itís as fast or faster then my M5 and as it is I rarely get to use the M5ís full petential on public streets.

Now if I can ever bring myself to sell it keeps being the big stopping point.
