However, when it finished its run in Service, I am hoping it goes around corners just as quick it goes down straights.

However, I am now thinking of upgrading the exhaust system, from stock to either MPE, Milteck or Scorpian.
Itís a cracking car you have there mate and nice of you to come along! Like we all say itís mainly banter about the m2 but we all pay to have our toys

Iíd have one in a heartbeat if it had 100 more horses and carbon goodies

Well I came from a Z4 2ltr, and taking on bigger BHP does not concern me - its about what you can get down on the road.

Some videos of my little 2 Ltr

Some carbon goodies would look great on your white M2. Akra not in the mix for your exhaust change?

Well I have carbon, grill and carbon performance mirrors

Need to fit my carbon sidewalls - but time is an issue.

Then thinking of carbon defuser and splitters

Regarding Akrapovic can not justify 3K plus, whilst Miltek is half the price

Defo on the carbon defuser and splitter. Yes I guess you have to pay a premium for titanium and build quality! You'd most likely get a fair chunk back when you come to sell it though. Difficult to get discounts too although I managed to get around £700 off retail price for mine back in May last year with free fitting and before/after dyno's.

Hi mate sorry I missed you at the meet. As an M2 owner I thought you scarpered before I got there.

At least you can take it as banter rather than getting all sensitive about it like others on here.

Well, I had 4 years of banter in my previous groups, as I was the only E89 2 Ltr Z4 owner, against 3 ltr turbo cars. There was quite a lot of banter there. However there was plenty of drives and meets, which was great with like minded peeps, rather than loads of teenagers.

I have no issue been the under

Sorry I had to go early, as I had to drive back home, as the wife had cooked me my dinner.

To be honest, I miss my Z4 - Its handling and performance were great.

I only had the M2 for 4 weeks, and not had an opportunity to learn the car, so need to book some track days to learn what I can and the car can do.

However looking forward to some drives, rather than just car park meets. Otherwise wife might think I am into

What power are you at now, 450/500?
Absolutely, and the Porsche sounded incredible. Turns out the guy lives just around the corner so I might have to start trolling him for some footage

Power is currently around the 465 mark but once I get the improved tuning software files uploaded and tested etc then sheís going on the Dyno to confirm.
