Default The BMW M2 CS Will Be Incredibly Rare In The USA




Quote:
The BMW M2 CS Will Be Incredibly Rare In The USA

We predict insane dealer markups with this few available!

The BMW M2 CS is one of the most hotly anticipated commodities to be coming out of Munich for some time. Some may even argue that this will be the greatest M car of the past decade. With a scorching Nurburgring lap time, clever 'connected' tires from Michelin, traditionally-sized kidney grilles, 444 horsepower, and a manual gearbox, there's lots to love about the new car. The price isn't one of these things, but we're expecting only 2,200 to be built, so it'll be even rarer than the iconic 1 M. But how many exactly can we expect to receive here in the States? The answer is 466.

This is somewhat in line with an earlier rumor that suggested we'd get no more than 500 and no less than 400. How do we know that this number isn't just a made-up figure? Well, a thread on BimmerPost yesterday confirmed it with a screenshot. What's interesting is that BMW of North America has since requested that the post be removed - something that it wouldn't really feel the need to do if the post were inaccurate. With so few of the special model arriving on American soil, there's no doubt that the entire allocation will sell out very quickly.

If you do miss out on the original allocations, we have no doubt that there will be some dealers and private individuals who will take advantage of the fervor over the M2 CS and resell the car at an even higher price than the $84,595 MSRP. Since there are only a finite number of these being produced, the value could well go up. Then again, perhaps patience is key. The 1M was produced in far greater numbers than originally intended due to the intense demand that the public showed for that vehicle - perhaps BMW will do something similar here. Or, knowing the Bavarians, a special edition of this special edition could be offered. BMW M2 CSL, anyone?

Proof there are still traditional enthusiasts in the M division...

Personally I think the carbon ceramic brakes are not a worthwhile option unless of course you plan to store it in the garage and let it one day be worth something.

The carbon roof and all that jazz don't appeal to me. Sure, its cool but not the upcharge cool. The only thing the M2CS has that I would lust for are those damn seats. Them sexy and I want them. Here would be my conundrum. I'd rather buy an M2C and purchase the M2CS hood and seats and swap them in. However, once you factor in the cost to do that, you could just purchase the actual M2CS. That's assuming you get in on the list with allocation.

Well, ok maybe for the speculation lol. But then again, I would want to drive mine. There are better ways of making money.

I will never own a car with carbon ceramics ever again unless I'm stupid rich, it's not worth it unless your name is Lewis Hamilton.

It's not a bad price considering other cars in that price range. I am just not a fan of the overall shape of the car. Same with the S3/RS3.

In the past these limited edition M cars really kept their value, but I'm not sure that's going to be the case here - not sure this car is really that unique to justify the cost - it's very similar to the M2 Competition. The 1M was a huge hit but it was more unique imo, closest car was the 135i.

But have you seen everything else coming out of BMW? It's like they are doing their hardest to impersonate an asian car manufacturer (nothing wrong with that - if you're an asian car manufacturer). No, it's going to increase in value simply because it's the last of the breed. Given that clean E30 M3s are going north of $100k now... check out the 8k mile example that sold for $250k

Yeah, but an E30 M3 felt special. And drives like nothing currently made by anyone. This one has the same lifeless steering as the rest is the lineup, a 3.0L turbo like the rest of the lineup. What's special about it, the carbon roof? Make a fat pig and then subtract 10 lbs? I'm sure in 10 years BMW will make cars that drive like this one.

It's because new BMWs suck that old ones are so expensive now.

It's their last true drivers car - that's what makes it special. Is it an E30? of course not, nothing available from anybody else is either. Go drive one, the shorter wheel base makes it feel like a different car than a M4, even though the weight is similar as you wish to point out.

What's with the carbon ceramic hate? I get if you're constantly tracking to replace with iron for cheaper operating costs. But they are amazing. TONS of stopping power, especially when warmed up; rotors last 100k miles+ in street duty; light; low dust; etc.

The random, dead waking squealing coming from a $150k car that is trying its best to impersonate an occasionally maintained Pinto. With mismatched tires. The $15k repair bill the (admittedly over inflated) stealership was so proud to present to me to replace all the rotors, calipers and pads for inexplicable grinding noises. I should have bought the Mclaren and dealt with potential $20k transmission issues, probably would have had more fun. Thought I was being conservative and going with something mainstream. Irons work perfectly fine this side of the legal speed limit, and even a little above.
