What's up guys ?
Welcome to tune into cars and welcome back to my BMW M two .
It's been a little over one year since I've picked up this car .
I've already done about 16,000 kilometers in it and I think it's time to do an update on how this car performed over the past year .
19.069 --> 120.47
So if you're planning to buy a BMW M two or an M two competition , make sure you check those videos out because I think it will help you make a decision .
I'll also make sure to link all of those videos below the like button .
So now that I've plugged all my previous M two videos , it's time to focus on this one .
I'm going to tell you what this car has been up to in the past year .
I'm going to cover what running costs I had to deal with what problems I've encountered .
I'll also tell you what I like the most about my spec but also which options I left out , which I should have gotten .
And finally , I'm also going to tell you my plans with this car .
I don't know how you guys feel about the cars you own .
But no matter what car I drive these days whenever I get back into my BMW M two instantly .
I remember why I love this car so much .
Even after 12 months , it feels just as special as when I first picked it up .
And yes , this is my only car and I do use it all year round .
And let me tell you , this car is just as much fun in the winter as it is during the summer .
In the past 12 months , this car has been through eight different countries .
It did high speed runs on the Oan Road on a few ferries and it also managed to carry a surprisingly high amount of stuff last year .
Just one week after picking this car up from the dealership , I took it on a 5000 kilometer trip around Europe to Romania and back the country where I'm from .
And on that very road trip , I found out how usable this car actually is .
It's got just enough luggage space and room on the inside for me and my family , plenty of storage space throughout the car .
And even though it doesn't have adaptive suspension , I'd say it was quite comfortable .
Mind you , this is not five series or three series levels of comfort .
But for an M car it's pretty good .
So let's talk about my spec a little bit .
I'll give you a quick rundown right now .
I'm 99% happy with the spec I chose for this car , except for one thing , I forgot to add the heated steering wheel , which is quite annoying , especially during the winter months here in Sweden .
And the irony of it all is the fact that that was one of the cheapest options you could get on the M two , but it's really expensive if you try to fit it after market .
But there you go , you can't have them all .
Let's see , what else ?
Well , the Harmon Cardone sound system is a pretty big let down for me .
It just doesn't sound like anything special to me .
It's probably very good for the resale value of the car that I chose this option .
But I have to be honest and tell you that I'm not at all impressed with the sound quality of this system .
The two standout options that are absolutely a door in this car are one , the led headlights , they're fully automatic and they feature BMW S L D matrix system that can turn off sections of the led headlight while still maintaining full beam .
And the other option that I love is the sun roof , which not only brings more light into this very dark cabin , but it also brings a lot more of the exhaust noise inside .
Mm , I'm not going to include fuel costs in this section because frankly , it all depends on your right foot actually , how heavy it is .
But I can tell you that in the last six months , the car shows an average of 11.2 liters per 100 kilometers .
Most of the time I drive this car outside of the city like 70% of the time .
And I have to be honest that I'm pretty heavy footed , so to speak next up .
It's insurance .
I pay around 12,000 Swedish car per year .
And I've already put this insurance to work by replacing the windshield after it cracked pretty badly last summer if I remember correctly .
And I only had to pay , I think 1500 for the repair , which is not bad .
Another cost I had on the car are the winter tires .
The brand I went for is Continental and I have to say that they're really good tires .
And the cost of that was around 10,000 Swedish Krona .
And finally , there's the yearly tax for this car which in Sweden is around 2300 Swedish Corona .
So there you go guys , those are the costs that I had to deal with in the past 12 months .
With this car .
I didn't include the first service I did to this car because in Sweden BMW S have three years of free servicing and that means labor and parts included .
If you're an old subscriber of this channel , you already know the first issue I had with this scar .
If you're not familiar with it , I'll link a video below the like button .
But that issue got solved really fast by my friends at Bavaria Sola .
And the problem never reappeared again .
I had a new issue like three weeks ago where the infotainment system started resetting itself .
But for some reason that seems to have fixed itself .
So I don't know if it reappears .
I'm gonna let you guys know .
But so far after like five or six resets , it works perfectly .
There you go .
But otherwise the car is holding up pretty well .
Even though I drive it all year long , the pain on the outside holds up pretty well and the interior is also in pretty good shape .
There are no rattles or weird sounds on the inside .
Wear and tear is pretty good on the materials .
So all in all build quality is pretty good technology and software .
Not so much .
This is the tricky part because I really don't know what to do .
I have managed to secure a spot in the waiting list for the upcoming M two CS or CS L whatever it's called .
But that will take another two years until it reaches dealerships .
So until then I'm really tempted to try something else , but I can't really find a car in this price range that I like more than the M two .
So I don't know actually .
And if I don't come to a conclusion before April or may , I'm probably gonna start modifying this car , but that's been it for today's video .
My friends .
I hope you've enjoyed it .
