    So surprised they all went so quickly, guess cant beat hype
    Strange, considering we just put through 150 orders today and that the dealer network was promised the others and we removed the change freezes in place because we thought our systems might get overlaoded with people trying to buy one.... turns out we had less then 6 people hit the site every min until sold. a vicdrift event has more people hitting the site on release

    Actually, 1 Large was just to hold your spot, the deposit required is $5000 to lock it in.

    interestingly, the T&C say you must cancel within three days of order confirmation email ($5000) but the website says cancel at any time up until delivery....

    Pretty average review in the latest Wheels.

    Suspension a bit wobbly and gearbox makes it no fun, apparently.

    Also only two seater, which somehow I didn’t realise! So the M2 Competition does everything better!

    Yeah but an M-sport car doesn’t exactly have the cachet of a Supra!
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    M2 Competition is in a different price bracket though?

    Also available to actually purchase, unlike the Supra. Also you can actually choose your colour and trim rather than randomly being allocated.

    Your point is valid, but a few grand extra at that price point makes little difference.

    More expensive, but surely the same “bracket”?

    Worth 2/3 after 2 years ... pretty much the norm for cars costing more’n about $60k innit? Not good nor bad?

    Yep, the comp crushed their resale. Still would have one over a supra.

    Personally, I think the engine in the M2 comp sounds like absolute ass, and the original M2s sounds boss.
    On this basis alone, I set on searching for a non-comp M2 in showrooms round Sydney.
    In the finance game, you see what these things go for when you finance them.
    Best price these guys could give me me was $110k for a 12 month old "NEW" in stock M2 non-comp.
    That was about $10k more than a price I'd seen a M2 comp go for.
    I wish BMW all the best, but I'm out.

    Could you imagine what financial suicide you'd commit buying an older, outdated model for a higher price than a comp when the comp is that much better? (save for the engine noise, which nobody knows about because they never drive them on WOT).

    They must have really seen me coming!

    Still, you'd buy the one above as an example over a Supra. They sounds all the disappoint.

    In my experience, unless the salesperson is a total dumb fuck they usually respond to being called out on this. I knocked 14k off the purchase of a 140i simply by quoting what Mr Purple on here bought his for and calling around.

    Damn it, I’ve been used as a bargaining point! What price did you get in the end?

    The dealer at Springwood tried to sell me a 5000km demo 140i with a sunroof at $75k on road. At the time they were advertised at $65k on road brand new...

    That's the Competition though, as others have said; the one referenced was a $100k car, and then the Comp came out.

    N55 is inferior to B58 (M140i), power, reliability, design, emissions. The overview docs came out in 2016 with manufacturer dyno plots. Either you accept the incoming depreciation. If you depended on it, you'd be stupid to think they won't put that motor in the F series M2 at some point. Instead, it got something arguably better.
    M235i is another example. 70k car 3 years ago. Manuals were sparse, especially in a non-lease spec white/black/silver car. 35-45k car now. 50% depreciation, lol. The 40i / B58 and to an extent N55 M2, killed their value.
    To sum up, the N55 M2 took a small hit with the M140i variants
    Took another hit when it was confirmed the N55 would no longer be feasible for the remaining production run.
    A bigger hit when it was confirmed the S55 would drop in rather than a tuned/tech updated B58.

    A trans flash/tune will probably rectify the Supra gearbag. If someone tried hard enough (clearly, not me), the M240iR flash could probably be used on it. There needs to be more reviews combined with reverse engineering/modification which will only happen with time. Not many cunts are going to keep this car a factory grand tourer like it presents itself.

    Depreciation was certainly the low light of my M2. The rest of the car was fantastic. Yolo

    and to be fair, not one of the four supra generations before it was an absolute monster out of the box. They all did some stuff really well, but needed a bit of love.

    They needed hulk hogan, Vin diesel and Paul walker.

    i think the image was FT86 did so well and it would be the same for the supra, people would buy them and modify them and this will keep sales up. but at a limited number and a higher cost i doubt it will be as crazy. also does not help that all the ones going out and modified have gone 2JZ
