Their latest program revolves around the second-generation BMW M2, giving it a visual upgrade and making it look more aggressive. Features stand out, from the hood vents, chin spoiler, and intake vents to the side skirts, rear diffuser, wing, and trunk lid addition.

A social media post promoting these goodies doesn’t need a price tag at all. However, the router’s official website does, and everything adds up to $21,165. Remember, that’s a lot of money for a few aftermarket bits and bobs, and one can get a brand new car for the same amount, with America’s cheapest, the Nissan Versa, starting at $16,390 before destination.

If you want a complete package for your BMW M2, apart from the carbon fiber additions mentioned above, then you will also have to look for new wheels. Here, Vorsteiner has many proposals on its shelves in many patterns, including those that resemble the beautiful Alpina sets. The show car used to advertise these parts has an orange look, visible carbon fiber, and Y-spoke alloys wrapped in sticky tires from Michelin.

Unveiled more than a year ago and starting production in 2023 at the San Luis Potosi facility in Mexico, the second-generation M2 isn’t as glamorous as its predecessor, but it stinks for a slightly higher-end model. The sports coupe boasts 453 horsepower (459 ps/338 kW) and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque from its twin-turbo 3.0L straight-six engine shared with the larger M3 and M4.

With a six-speed manual transmission, it takes 4.2 seconds to 60 mph (97 kph), and should you go for the automatic option, then the time will drop to 3.9 seconds. That’s two tentacles faster than the bigger and more powerful M3 Sedan, which boasts 473 hp (480 ps/353 kW). The M3 Competition needs 3.8 seconds to 60 mph thanks to 503 hp (510 ps/375 kW), and the M3 Competition xDrive, which is equally punchy and delivers AWD system for party, you can do it in 3.4 seconds.

The M2 is the most affordable model of the BMW M Division. It starts at $63,200, excluding destination and dealer fees, undercutting the base M3 by $12,800. The M4 Coupe starts at $78,100, and the larger and more luxurious M8 Competition Coupe at $138,800. The latter is capable of 617 hp (626 ps/460 kW) from a 4.4L twin-turbo V8 mill and has 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) on tap, taking three seconds flat to sixty.
