Also because the N55 is *way* less durable. (Yes, more reliable.)
Do you include the Míified version in M2 in that statement. Do you think I would be getting into trouble down the line owning one for 6-7 years?

No idea. I hear that the S55 is not doing particularly well.

Good point. I read it fast, and thought he said 6k miles, but that was when he did the Dinan work...

Edit: Not an Msport either. Strange...

Right? Look at all the money he spent larding a non-Msport with performance bits, not to mention spending $5k on a custom color. I hope he's not in the finance. Yikes.

Car and driver is stating pricing on the M2C but still nothing offcial from BMW. If they are right base is around $59 with detuned S55 from the M4 and that cars comp pkg cooling system, a six piston big brake kit, real M seats and mirrors and a bunch of suspension tweaks.

That’s actually not a bad deal when looking at the M4 base pricing.

I have a full detail scheduled for this Thursday for the M5 then some pro pics by my photographer friend then the ads go live. I have 4 sale signs in the window already just to judge interest as I drive around.

I am dead set on the 2018 LCI version. I just have to sell the 5 first.

Ok WHY does that happen. Weird. Posting from Australia again apparently.

That seems like phenomenal deal for $37k. I’d like wdc to find my next car.

I would jump on this (despite wrong coast) if getting a 4-series. Blue/oyster, manual, no expense spared, lots of dinan upgrades... Wow.
