Lots of carbon available to drop some of that excess weight....

Chris.
You'd be spending big dollar to drop that weight

I recall seeing a carbon'd up M135i years ago, base price iirc was c£30k, this one was £47k

To be honest, i'm not sure it needs more power. It'll spin its wheels in the dry in 3rd gear if the road is at all bumpy.

Looks like they're trying to keep the base price low by offering the bits that really make a difference as options.

@ Chrisr111- have you decided on the options yet?

I can't spec it until later this month when UK dealers get their price list from BMW.

But I have a good idea what I'm going to go for: DCT, big brakes, HK, LEDs, keyless access, ugly kid glass, reverse camera, carbon front splitter, carbon boot lip, carbon diffuser, carbon mirrors, carbon roof, M performaance exhaust, M performance/BBS wheels, Alcantara steering wheel.

Why do you ask?

Chris.

that looks an expensive list Chris.. regardless i am sure it'll be a hoot to drive (I'd still go manual i think)

the child in me (roughly 97.9% of me) loves it when a manufacturer creates something like that car. I like the purist CSL approach too but i think just shoe horning an engine into a small car has a certain charm

Clio V6, 135i.. you cannot help but smile

Just interested really. Not the seats? The standard ones are quite good but they don't add anything to the interior over a non M 2 series. The new ones from the M3/4 look much better.

I think the M performance exhaust will be fitted as standard. I'm also lead to believe that the carbon roof is not factory fit and is intended to be fitted by a bodyshop post delivery of the car. Would be interested to know how much weight it will save.

Carbon roof and the upgraded seats with the carbon bits you're proposing make the competition model a worthwhile upgrade and more than the parts bin special i accused it of being in a previous comment.

I found this on cutters:

CF bonnet/hood: -9kg / -19.8lbs
CF roof: -5kg / -11lbs
CF side panels/fenders: weight not listed, guesstimate, -3kg / -6.6lbs, ea
CF boot/trunk: -6kg / -13.2lbs
MPE: -8kg / -17.6lbs

What's the charge for saving you the weight of a small passenger?

The M3/4 style seats with the illuminated logos are standard fit on the M2C in the UK (optional in other markets).

The M performance exhaust has a stainless centre section, titanium rear section/backbox and the tailpipes have the slipover carbon trim - it's defo optional not standard fit.

I'd heard that the roof is dealer fit (or at least bodyshop fit) - the same as all M Performance parts in the UK (US customers can opt for M Performance parts to be fitted at the port before their car arrives at the dealer).

Chris.

I think the stock M2 has a variant of the previous gen M3 seats, I think these are bloody excellent

Chris.. will you map it? I imagine plenty of extra grunt is available.
