Wallace Santos, a reader of BMWBLOG, is one of the 150 proud owners of the limited edition BMW M2 Performance Edition. Wallace decided to videotape his delivery experience and take us along for the ride in South Carolina.
Under the code ZL9, a 2017 BMW M2 M Performance Edition was introduced as a limited edition only for U.S. customers. The special M2 is limited to 150 units and it has an MSRP of $61,695.

The M Performance Parts catalog has been tapped in, so the M2 M Performance Edition features black kidney grilles, black side gills, M Performance illuminated door sill, LED door projectors, M Performance exhaust system with titanium tips and M Performance coilover suspension. It’s available with both manual and DCT transmission.
All the units are only offered in Alpine White and will be equipped with the M Driver’s Package which brings the top speed to 168 mph.
The BMW Performance Center Delivery program is an opportunity offered by BMW to any customers in the United States by allowing them to pick-up their cars at the BMW plant in Spartanburg.
The free-of-cost program includes complimentary one-night hotel stay, including meals, a tour of both the BMW Zentrum museum and Manufacturing Plant and a personalized vehicle delivery presentation by a BMW Product Specialist. But the best part of this unique program is the exciting opportunity to drive a similar built BMW as the one you ordered, on the race track available at the Performance Center. BMW professional driving instructors will provide on-site lessons on braking, cornering and safe driving. For those of you ordering an X-vehicle, the program also includes an exercise on the off-road course.
