Hmmmm - I thought this was actually a pretty cool branding exercise by a company that is seriously looking to build an engaged community and some loyalty. But only the most recent M cars are allowed to join? Why would they kneecap their community from the get go? The fact that I can't join with a Z4MC actually turns me off the BMW brand.

The best ad is that one that introd the m4 and it was drifting through all the other m cars. The fact they had car owners participate was awesome

Second one is better, but still trying too hard I think.

They should take some lessons from Porsche marketing. They let the car speak for itself usually.

Uhmmmm

Cheese or no cheese... I'm glad I have a passport! M2

That being said, I do agree that the car should do the talking, Porsche!?

However, may I add, I recently had the most frustrating drive in the world. I dropped off some friends at the airport early Sunday morning, and while going home, I had an empty 5-7 lane highway mostly empty. It took everything in me not to go 150 MPH. WTF!?!?! In my world, German cars with certified high performance drivers should not have a speed limit. No joke, seriously traumatizing experience.

There was a ///M tent and test drive available at the concours de elegance in La Jolla in 2016...where I saw the M2 in the flesh for the first time.

I tried to register for M Town but it wouldn’t let me. M2s must not be a real M. M2 Competitions can register though.

Except the M performance models. Hence, the addition of “performance” in their respective names, otherwise they’d just have an M.

Anyone who has owned/driven a 235/240 and M2 (owned both) know that they don’t share much beyond the Roundel badge. It’s not even close.

235 was the worst BMW I’ve owned, M2 is one of my favorites (I’m on #8 now)...
