    It's been great spending time reading and learning here... Thanks to ALL the knowledgeable people who have given assistance on various topics... And you too @jassyo06 hahaaaa kidding! :D Everyone has been great.

    I've spent so much (too much lol) time on this site!

    I love my car but just get bored easily after (nearly) a couple of years lol

    I am off... Well sort of... My Dad is keeping my car so I'll still be about a bit!

    Any guesses?? It's still German, different brand, RWD, similar size and more powahhhhhh! :D that's enough clues for a good guess lol

    I still prefer the Audi interior... But this car is going to be much more of an occasion to drive and it's bought for that reason really... The interior is still nice!

    Yeah there's the M2 Competition rumoured for July 2018 but I'd had enough of facelifts, delays and price increases while ordering the S3 lol so thought I'll just go for it!

    I enquired about a M2 roughly this time last year mate, twas a showroom car with the carbon pack on it really awesome looking beast it was, so talking to a sales guy, then sat down to talk figures..... He said the car in the showroom was £57.000..... Though to myself that's too expensive.... So on he went l said a £8k deposit..... I then mentioned that word discount.... He said we don't discount them...... Straight away l was up out of the chair heading towards the door lol a year ago there was a waiting list though

    Haha it is crazy!! The situation is very much the same still. The dealer said they only get about 3 build slots per year. Luckily if I wanted a factory order I found a dealer who could do it for mid-March, but another one did tell me it would be the end of 2018.

    Also heard the same... That they simply don't need to discount them so they also don't offer any deposit contributions or anything. Said the most they normally give off is <£1k!

    The M Performance Carbon bits do look amazing!! But with those and the M Performance exhaust you're soon looking at £4-£5k lol

    Congrats on the new motor, good choice on the colour too. Next door neighbour has M2 in LBB as well, was never sure on the colour until I seen his, simply stunning! Enjoy it when it arrives.

    Yeah bmw charge £5k to the punters mate, in 2 years time l will look at what's available in the BMW range if Jordan is still with them that is, the M lights are the sweet spots of there car ranges just like the Audi S models but the jump up to a actual M car is a tad expensive, l love my S3 but it will be last Audi..... BMW are starting to get there act together with their interiors so hopefully good things to come from them.... The LCI has the new front and rear led lights plus a few other wee tweeks you'll love it but that suspension on the M2...... Is quite firm lol

    Thanks everyone! :D Looks like pics are definitely required lol. I didn't think it was right to just quietly disappear off to the BMW forums without saying something here since everyone has been a great help.

    Saturday can't come sooner though :D hahaha

    Ha yeah the ride is firm I'd say, not stiff, but firm lol. I didn't find it too bad during the couple of test drives I had. But like I say it's kind of why you buy the car, it is one of the characteristics that makes it drive the way it does and although the interior isn't on the same level as the S5 I was considering as the other option, it is also far from terrible and better than I expected.

    They had a san merino blue M4 CS in the showroom... that's a wonderful colour!

    Late to the party....great colour, great engine and not too shabby looking either. Interior is OK but not quite in Audi league. The ride is, as are all M cars a bit harsh, but not brutal. I still have a hunkering for RWD drive cars as they truly are fun to drive and just feel right, when cornering etc.
    Enjoy your new purchase and send pics, but please do not be an idiot BMW driver, as many are prone to be.

    Black kidney grills and M Performance carbon spoiler were part of the deal! I made sure! :D haha

    Spoiler is on back order though so will have to collect without that :(
    What @jassyo06 said really! I have splitter'd my last two cars BUT I think on this I prefer the M Performance Carbon Splitter Corners, but they are £600 discounted without fitting!

    Decent splitter is usually around £300 so I guess not too bad

    Ooooo jassy!! :D I have spent most of my spare money as you can imagine haha - but in a couple of months possibly. I think over front splitter corners I reckon for now (as I could only afford one lol) I'd prefer the side blades.

    Could you please thank Jordan for his kind offer and ask him (then PM me) invididual delivered prices for side blades (carbon) and rear diffuser (carbon) please??

    I can get discounted from another dealer on the BMW forum: blades for £600 and diffuser for £625 but I reckon they're still making money on me... lol
