I think I'm the odd one out because I think the front end on this orange wrapped performance part riddled car is badass.

Killer shot.

This M2 definitely has potential. It's clear M Performance is going in a whole new direction, hopeful the aftermarket will produce some spectacular bits to tastefully enhance the car.

Does this mean embargo has lifted? Can other "influencers" get their review videos out? I presume the answer is No given no one else has.. but leaves me to wonder this was released now?

It looks a million times better because those side vent CF inserts make the bumper look less chunky. It'll be a shame if you can't buy those separately.

Best part of the video was the 963m talk. Hoping we're able to add these to US orders soon.

Everyone has a pain-point; it's only a matter of where it is. Experience proves center lock wheel pain is a non issue for me personally. Now carbon buckets are a completely different story…

I still can't get over how the 'lip' of the grill overshoots the grill slats on all 5 sides.

Gives it a really 'puckered' look.

I think if it was similar to the XM or the new M240i where the grill border was it's own individual trim separated from the front bumper it wouldn't be so bad.

Same with the square side vents flanking the left and right side.

I agree that the grill could be integrated better. But the good news is that it's a plastic piece and hopefully a better aftermarket solution will be available. I personally am hoping to find a vertical grill solution.

Yep, I'm envisioning just a 5-sided grill border cover or overlay in gloss black, carbon fibre, or silver.

Simply install using 3M double sided adhesive directly over the raised bump in the lip area surrounding the grill.

I'm sure it would sell like hot cakes.

Since it's just plastic, I'm sure they'd make just all new grill inserts with a border already integrated as one piece. Either way, I'm excited to see these cars modded. Lots of opportunity to be creative

The M Performance options are truly awful, except for the M963 wheels. The stupid looking triangle exhaust looks just as bad as the G80/G82's version. The graphics look like someone tried to be artistic with black electrical tape.
