Why would you do that?!

Seriously though - I did the same earlier in the year and it’s been a great change. I’m sure I’ll be back in a lotus, but not for a while...

What’s the date for M2 in the peaks 😂

As long as your are happy mate, no matter what brand of car you buy, the M2 is the best M car since the E30 M3 and happy motoring to you. Will miss you on our breakfast runs.

I quite like the M2. It's small, looks aggressive and no doubt a quality product with lots of kit. The one thing I REALLY dislike though is the stretch of the tyre sidewalls, particularly noticeable on the front tyres. It looks SO awful and I can't help thinking that (as I wouldn't get exclusive use of such a toy), the wheels would be kerbed in no time. If only tyres would go back to higher profiles with a bit of a bulge to the sidewalls. 

I'm sure the camaraderie on the M2 forums won't be a patch on MLOC, but this may not be a factor to you. Enjoy your purchase Ian, and we'll see you back before long.

Life’s too short not to try different cars that you like.

i wanted to try an Evo and then returned to the fold. Then wanted to try a Caterham which I now have. 

 

jeffs your man to chat too about saloons, he can’t get enough of them :-) (in joke)
