7 year 70K warranty. Not worried
Warranty or not, you're going to be best buds with your service department :crackup:.

I'm not biased or anything. I just hate BMW's, the myths surrounding "German engineering", and the snobbery associated with owning the Ultimate Leasing Machine. Plus, I wouldn't trust a company that can't even make a functional turn signal.

I've had enough of Fords "engineering" for a while so Ill take my chances. Hopefully I wont find a battery brush in the engine bay after service like I did with my 15 mustang. Enjoy what you have and safe driving!

Picked up my 2021 BMW M2 Competition in Hockenheim Silver last Saturday. Has DCT.
This is my first BMW. I have to do a 1200 mile service before really getting on it.
Congrats! The M2C is the best car BMW currently makes. I leased an M2 with the N55 engine before upsizing to a 440i. Tons of fun, and the S55 is one hell of an engine.

Yeah, I won't let the dealership "mechanics" touch my car. If I can't do the work myself, I'll pay someone I trust.

Thanks! So far I really like it. I love how it feels small and although not light, it has that feel.
I'm not a brand guy, I just like fast cars. I've owned 88 GT, 01 GT Vert Laser Red, 08 GT Black Cali Special, 13 GT, 15 GT White Auto, 2018 Mercedes AMG C43, and now this M2. I'm looking at trying a Cayman next in 3-4 years.

I was also looking at Mach 1 this time around but the wait and the ADM here in Socal pisses me off.

That's pretty bad ass.
How was the quality of the vehicle, in your opinion?
I'm sure it's a great vehicle.

Well for starters, it's pretty fast. I almost got a ticket in NC thinking the charger next to me wanted to race but he turned out to be a undercover cop. Oops.... he was really nice though and told me that if he catches me on that highway again he'll write me a ticket. Inside is not that bad. I liked everything about it. Suspension, power, interior, sunroof, etc.

I mean... I wouldn't mind owning one 😀 too expensive tho. I would rather pay a bit more and get a used Nissan GT-R.

Thanks for your input.
I appreciate it.

The car has become so uncomfortable I would not dare take it on a long trip. The seats are horrible, even replaced the bottom cushion, bought a amazon cushion for help to no avail. Plus I am at a point in my life I want some comfort and practicality. Looking at a Ridgeline possibly since we are shopping for a second house (haul stuff to second home which is hours away) and I have a motorcycle too... Will get a fun sports car later, something much cheaper.

No offense meant but are you a...*ahem*...larger gentleman? Personally I find the seats to be fantastic. If my back hurts, that goes away after a short time driving. Sure, some of that is "v8 therapy", but they're still really nice to be in. I have seriously considered buying a seat and making it into an office chair.

I've found the cloth seats to be very comfortable on long trips.

No offense taken for its a fair statement, 6ft 175lbs, workout all the time. But I am in my fifties and the pressure that these premium seats put on my hips is just annoying. Its a combination of the side bolstering pushing up against my legs and lack of cushion under my butt that puts pressure directly on the hip joint. We have a 2017 Honda Pilot and its comfy as hell on trips..
