Hi All i just came back from my running in service Engine oil filter was... — BMW M2

Hi All, i just came back from my running-in service. Engine oil & filter was changed. Differential oil, too. Launch control was activated among other things.

But the Service Advisor "asked"(forcing) me to change the transmission oil as it was in the list-to-do for the 2,000 km break-in service. I was unaware and unsure, so I declined it. Before they released the car to me, the Service Manager now approached me and asked me why I didn't want the transmission oil changed.

Does this need to be done now? When do we actually change transmission oil for our M2? After 24,000 kms?

    Attended my first track day at Snetterton in my newly acquired M2 today — BMW M2

    Attended my first track day at Snetterton in my newly acquired M2 today. Was damp this morning and i was so disappointed as you could hardly drive it at all. Coming from a modded E46 M3 which was so much more tractable in the damp/wet on track, probably due to lower torque and no boost. Anyway, after lunch it dried out, i fitted my 18'' inch wheels with Nankang NS2r's and turned of all the driver aids - WOW, what a difference, the grip was fantastic and it was so easy to control power slides. What a car, being able to change from 2nd - 3rd on the paddles mid slide was hysterical.

    Not a car to push on in the wet but in the dry it is truly awesome - o much fun and so rewarding to drive. Oh, its a bit thirsty on track to.

        Hi everyone.... just a wee note to say if you want to sell anything (M2 related of course), a few wee house rules...

        1) Give a full description and price you want (y)

        2) No offers or 'PM me'. Keep it in the post until you have found a seller and want to exchange details, at which point PM is fine (Y)

        3) No eBay links, or links to external hosted selling sites (y)

        4) Include a picture of the actual item, nothing from a web page or Google photo (y)

        5) State you location if its not shown so others can determine if collection of postage will be required (y)

        6) Try and use a safe and secure payment method, eg PayPal, don't share bank details or use those dodgy money-gram services (y)

        Stay safe when buying. selling, trading (y)

          Just finished fitting XP10 pads all round, goodridge hoses and changing the fluid to Castrol React. Have to say the brakes feel totally transformed. Very impressed. The standard set up is very poor for anything more than slightly spirited driving.

            Hey everyone, seems like the members on here are from all around the world which is awesome! I thought I would share this link that is on the f87.bimmerpost.com/forums site. It is Google maps page where you can add yourself and see other members.

            It's a great idea for potential meets for members that live near you. The first link is where the forum post is telling you the instructions on how to fill it out.

            The second link I've posted is the actual google link to the map.

              Hey guys I just installed:

              -Vent gauge P3cars

              -M perf steering wheel w/ LED light display

              -Eibach lowering springs

              -Vorsteiner 19 inch VFF-103 flow forged wheels

              -Vorsteiner Spline Bolts Black

              The steering wheel install was quite involving as it required rewiring and dash trim panel removal etc.. I have a manual so I think I am one of the first guys to try this with M2. The LED lights seems to come in too early even before hitting red line which I am not quite sure how to tweak.

              Will post some finished pics today.

              Big thanks to Josh at Boden Autohaus

                Hallo M2 Freaks :-) habe meinen M2 heute nach 5 Wochen Winterschlaf mal wieder aus der Garage geholt :-) Nach einer Fahrt von ca. 20 km und abstellen des Motors kam folgende Fehlermeldung: "Batterie stark entladen" :-( Genügt es nun

                die Batterie durch eine längere Fahrt (100 km) zu laden oder wäre es besser die Batterie an ein externes Ladegerät zu hängen??? Danke schon mal für eure Antworten und gefahren wird heute bei dem Sonnenschein auf jeden Fall ;-)

                  This is where it all started.. exactly one year ago.. first time ever seeing an M2 in person was January 2016. After this weekend, I started obsessing and researching info on how to get one. Luckily I got on a couple lists in April and landed an allocation in June.. I did a Performance Center Delivery in September.. Almost 5 months and 5k miles later and I can't stop grinning every time I take it out of the garage

                    Heute stand zufällig neben mir ein 2er Lci und ich habe mit dem Fahrer auch bissl gequatscht :)

                    Also folgendes :

                    - Die Led Lichter konnte man vorne klar erkennen und es sind die gleichen wie beim 1er lci Ringe und keine Halbringe wie beim 3/4 Facelift.

                    - Led-Blinker sind nur beim Led Licht enthalten (Sonderausstattung) ausser M2

                    - Rückleuchten haben den identischen Knick wie beim Lci 1/3/4

                    M2 kriegt das Facelift auch (gibts halt Led vorne hinten und 1-2 Neuerungen im Cockpit

                    - LCI wird im März vorgestellt, Produktion ab Juni, erste Auslieferungen Ende Juli.

                    Im Großen und Ganzen nichts Weltbewegendes.

                      Took my m2 in for the run in service today at 2 000kms Engine oil oil filter... — BMW M2

                      Took my m2 in for the run in service today at 2,000kms. Engine oil, oil filter and rear diff oil changed. I was also told the power output limiter was removed. I asked how much power output does she have now, response somewhere between 50-80kw. This equates to some 30% power increase from new.

                      Is this true? Have not had the chance to feel it myself due to the rain. In says that, I did give it a bit at 60kmh and I felt the rear wheels slipping in the wet.

                      Appreciate what you all have been told?

                        Hallo Leute,

                        Nach sage und schreibe 15 Monaten habe ich meinen M2 tatsächlich doch noch bekommen.

                        Eckdaten: 6,85% Nachlass / Bestellt 15.10.2015

                        / unverbindlicher Liefertermin Mai 2016 /Auslieferung 17.01.2017 / Niederlassung Saarbrücken

                        Ausstattung -> Keine

                        Das Einzige was aufpreispflichtig war bei meinem M2 sind die Farbe und Sonnenschutzverglasung.

                        Warum ?

                        Nach meinem Vollausgestatteten M3 E92 und RS3 8V (beide Doppelkupplungsgetriebe) wollte ich etwas rein puristisches.

                        Gäbe es die Möglichkeit ohne Klima, Soundsystem und Rücksitzbank zu bestellen, ich hätte es warscheinlich getan.

                        Das Wiegen steht noch aus aber ich denke der Wagen bildet die Referenz in wie weit BMW die kommunizierten Werte einhält, da er praktisch keine das Gewicht erhöhenden Sonderausstattungen hat.

                        Vorerst werde ich nur minimalste Änderungen vornehmen, schwarze Nieren und Kiemen evtl. langfristig werden Auspuff inkl. Downpipe, Fahrwerk und Felgen auch geändert werden.

                        Zum Schluss noch ein Bild von der Abholung.

                          Tri State Area Owners — BMW M2

                          Tri-State Area Owners!

                          Crazy idea but looking to trade my 2017 LBB DCT for a 2017 LBB 6spd m2. Every day I'm doubting the decision of DCT so I figured I'd put it out there. If you're taking a delivery soon and decided you need DCT for whatever reason or rather not wait, please contact me. Looking for a car with Apple play and executive package. Hoping for someone close to the TRI-state area so we can meet up in person.

                          Currently the car has a bunch of visual goodies from iND but the main thing it has is xpel around the whole front bumper, side skirts, and rear fenders. Getting around $1.5k back for this would be my goal after spending 2.0k on the xpel. Visual goodies from iND can be taken off and reverted back to stock. Shoot me a messages and let's talk

                            Hi everyone. We've had more and more car related businesses joining the group to promote their business and products. This is good for us and good for you, however as with all things group related the road goes both ways (terrible pun!).

                            So, I'm more than happy for business to advertise and promote their products but can I ask the following of you....

                            1) Your products need to be M2 or at least BMW related, no point in being primarily being a Ford tuner with little or no BMW experience.

                            2) You need to offer something to the Group, eg group buy, demo days, trials or something that gets the M2 owners interested but at the same time will generate business for you.

                            3) You need to contribute to the Group discussions; we're all car guys and gals here, so get involved in the chat, post pics, tell us your stories.

                            So, crack on and lets see how this goes (y).

                                  I took delivery of my car in September , but the M performance wheel I wanted wasn't available. Finally had that fitted today during my first 1200 mile service. Nice addition. Certainly looks the part. The alcantara feels great. The steering wheel is much less spongy, I kind of liked that about the old wheel, but overall it is the right wheel for this car I think.

                                  Thoughts?

I'm meanwhile close to 7x seconds. My latest runs are all about 8.0 seconds. Adding 30% E85 I could decrease the result of about 0.3 seconds but this might be the limit with stock turbo. I guess I need an turbo upgrade soon!

                                      Hello M2 owners. I have an important question about break-in period. Ever since I've bought the car I have been varying the load at different speeds and different RPMs. I never went past 4500 rpm and never went faster than 80mph. So far I've driven on highway and city (stop and go) roads. I never floored the gas pedal either. I don't really understand what kickdown means though. The manual says to avoid doing it at all costs. Sometimes when I start accelerating and I shift up the gears quickly I notice that the motor likes to rev slightly between gears. Is that kickdown? Am I breaking in my car properly? This is also a manual transmission. Please let me know your thoughts.
