Just picked up a 2019 M2 Competition for Daily Driving.

I’ve been DDing large SUV’s for the past several years and just decided I wanted some daily fun back in my life.

The car is a hoot to drive, plenty fast for a the street and the dynamics are outstanding. Fun little car!

Beautiful spec man! Congrats! Is that Hockenheim silver? Manual or automatic? I actually just picked up a new DD myself and was considering the M2. Went with the Giulia QF instead.

I’ve been looking at the M2C as well. Getting very good reviews. I haven’t been to a dealer yet and asked direct but a lot of the reviews talk about brake upgrade package but I don’t see that on the website? Is that a Euro spec only do you know? Seems there are very few specs for US model - color, rims, transmission and interior color.
At least US cars don’t come with the OPF (gas filter).

“The M2 Competition also gets larger brake disks, measuring 400 mm up front and 380 mm in the rear compared to the old M2's brake disks that were 380 mm up front and 370 mm in the rear. There are also larger six-piston fixed brake calipers up front and 4-piston fixed calipers in the rear, instead of 4-pistons in front and 2-piston calipers in the rear.”

Yes, Hockenheim and went with the DCT transmission. Very happy with both.

I think this would be a great quasi DD...what a blast to drive (especially manual).

For $60K wish it's a steal.
