Arrow 550hp BMW M235i Convertible

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


Description from video:
"During the RACE1000 in Germany yesterday I have filmed this unique BMW 'M2' Convertible (based on a M235i) fitted with Akrapovic Exhaust. BMW will not make the M2 Convertible, so thats why Kotte Performance customized it and is tuned to 550HP! You will hear some loud revs and accelerations during the 1/2 Mile Acceleration! I hope you will enjoy the video"

yep.. . that's what people have said since the E30 325 vs the E30 M3.. . and yet somehow.. one fetches QUITE a bit more than the other at resale.

people made this comment about the E36 M3 vs the E36 325 and yet somehow.. the E36 M3 sells for more.
people make this comment about the E46 M3 and the E46 325 and yet somehow..
people made this comment about the 135 and the 1M ... do we honestly need to check the price differences here?

WHAT GIVES?

and now you so are making the same statement about the M2 ...

As the owner of someone who actually has a 325 with a body kit, I still say an M2 is as such.

NATCH. So.. how much is your 325 with a kit worth compared to an M3 again?

how about your 135 " with a kit " vs a 1M?

+1.

That said I have slightly more patience for this kind of work when BMW doesn't make a car. So this is not great IMO but worse is converting to something they do make. Like 235 coupe to M2 conversion, 3 series to M3 etc.

Start a poll for the butt hurt m2 owners....
Who cares what they call it, your M2 doesn't even have M mirrors, so people can arguably claim its not a real m car, just like the NA E36 M3 for different reasons.

Why so much M2 hate? Is it just jealousy or something else.

Pure Stage 2 Turbo setup (incl. pure turbo inlet)
Fuel-It Port injection kit (supports up to 600hp)
Fuel pump upgrade
Meth kit
N20 MAP sensor?
Spark Plugs?

Then the supporting hardware, DP/FMIC/CPs/Intake/JB4 (for boost/meth control)

I'm sure I missed a tidbit, or two ...

Mods moved the thread to 2er subforum. Don't forget your sunblock when donning your flame suit.
