I'm glad you like it Kevin! We've had ours for 10 months now, and my wife and I love the car. In over 40 years of driving/autocrossing/tracking BMWs, I've never owned one that I've not modified at least the suspension. The M2C is just perfect as is so far.
It was really fun to fly up to IL to buy it as I was in/out of the dealership in short order, and requested they not provide any intro to the car as I needed to get on the road as I had to be at the proving grounds in SC in three days. It was like plopping into a rental car where you aren't familiar with it, and over the following two days driving back south I slowly got to know the car. The thing that surprised me the most right off the bat getting onto the Interstate was how the steering had dead straight tracking and had that nailed to the road feeling with excellent just off center feel/response. They've done a very good job with the EPS reprogramming.
By the way, my M5 sold again on BaT last month as my buyer was moving to CA and couldn't have three cars. It is now in LA in very good hands with a well-known car industry veteran who purchased it (along with being a really cool guy).
