..::PSI::.. - Improving the Looks of G87 M2 : M Performance, Eventuri, Kies + More

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
With the new BMW G87 M2 being surrounded in controversy over its "unique" styling, we knew we had some work to do. With boxes stacked waiting for its arrival, our M2 only lived two days before it was time to throw M performance, Eventuri, Kies Motorsports parts and more at it. Do you think our decision on these upgrades helped or hurt your opinion on the M2?

It's amazing how everyone has the same gripes: weird looking parts, BMW won't sell the big wing, ridiculous strut bar, etc. Great video. Eventually we'll all learn what works best on this Thing.

What was the kit you used to lower it?

Super interesting that the front lip comes in three parts.

Iíve always thought a front lip color match would really tie it up in front but with the understanding itís actually three parts maybe just color matching the middle blade. Idk

Thereís just something about that huge upfront gap between the left and right lower inlets aesthetically that I canít get over.

Pretty much with all BMWs though, spacers and drop do wonders.

Iím also preferential to alloy wheels I think they look so much better than black, which I feel is a bit overused and tired at this point. With black you donít get a sense of the wheel angles and complexities the same way you do with the silver or alloy.

I think all the G87 needs on the outside is a nice custom color, tint and being lowered with a set of nice wheels.

Agreed. The aero foils are looking way too racer boy base model wannabe imo

I'd like to see someone mock up the M-performance wing from the M3/M4 on the M2 to see how it looks. Kies motorsports installed one on a f80 M3 and it actually fit really well and I feel like it might fit his M2 as well. Would look kinda similar to the TRE M2 kit render.

The TRE sideskit and front lip also fit this car better than the OEM equipment IMO.

That all said, the wheels and drop on this build definitely clean up the car and make it look 10x nicer.

I just canít get behind that design, it has no character and itís too bland. Itís almost like
BMW said letís design the most basic car we can.

can't believe it but ZB is really growing on me. I'm 100% over the F87 and I loved the F87. I just miss the gauges that's about it.

Blades are
Boxes are
Whoís going to make some surrounds for the kidney grille? I think that would go a long way to fixing the front end. Nothing thick or over the top, just something to make the nose look less like a cost-cutting exercise.
