"Amazed"? The reason for the low production numbers is capacity in Leipzig and the fact that they have to take each M2 off the production line and manually fit certain parts. I wouldn't be so sure they can just "ramp up" production like that. I doubt production methods are going to suddenly change. There doesn't have to be ulterior motives for decisions BMW makes.Arcanum said:I'd be amazed if they don't ramp production after deliveries start.
Yes,a classic case of damned if you do and damned if you don't (buy,that is).Arcanum said:Unless you're a BMW exec your guess is as good as mine. However, the history of genuine limited editions is rarely on the side of the manufacturers staying true to the originally planned numbers. The M2 is not even a limited edition, just a production throttled variant which makes it even less likely they'll stick to the current numbers. A cynic might say they learned from the 1M and decided to get the hype going early without creating bad blood in the early adopters by promising a genuine limited edition.
I guess we'll see what happens in about 6-months...
Surely most people would just move on and pick another car be it an m3/4 or a completely different brand with those kind of wait times?Hoolius said:Spoke to my local dealer in Sunningdale. Looks like there are 8 in the queue and delivery would be sometime in 2019 if I wanted one. That is just ridiculous.
So you're going to wait potentially 3 years for your new car?! .Hoolius said:After driving the car today I put my deposit down. Was too good a machine not to even with the long wait which I hope will be resolved by BMW chasing a sales hit.
They are saying end 2017 now.Sonic1506 said:So you're going to wait potentially 3 years for your new car?! .Hoolius said:After driving the car today I put my deposit down. Was too good a machine not to even with the long wait which I hope will be resolved by BMW chasing a sales hit.
Still a LONG wait. Good luck! I don't think I could wait and if I had the budget I'd go for an M4.Hoolius said:They are saying end 2017 now.
I have ordered manual, my dealer told me that all the other orders were DCT. I am test driving a DCT on Friday at a different dealer to see what it's like.Inverted said:Are most going DCT or manual? Ive been told demo cars are a 75/25 % split in DCT/Manual.
Im going manual
Dealer BS and inter web speculation is a marvellous thing, if they cannot confirm a date forming by end of the summer I just scratch the Porsche itch insteadSunglasses Ron said:2019 delivery?!?!? What a load of sh*t these dealers talk, honestly. Who in their right mind would wait 3 years for a car, that when delivered, will be pretty much old tech/news.
If you can't get an M2 within 6 months by the end of this year, I'll be amazed!!
