Going to be my next car for sure.
To add to E92 M3 right?

High chance this will be my ICE end game.

Absolutely! That baby is going nowhere The M2 will replace the wifes M140i hatchback.

I can only hope to spec CCBs as I really miss them from my M4CS.

M2 will have new idrive 8 like in the i4 or traditional cluster?

Looking at the latest camo car spotted, I can't see the new "idrive 8" long screen raised, seems like the traditional infotainment etc.

I haven't followed much in which models iDrive 8 will be present, i expect it in the i4 of course... but what about the upcoming series2 + upcoming M2?

Is there any information leaked about if they will bring the current Series 3, Series 4 infotainment or if it will be the long panel idrive 8 ?

Thanks!

The 2er coupe will get the ID7 / current 3er infotainment initially, but get upgraded to the ID8 one after a year or so in 8/2022. The M2 will get the ID8 one from the start (cause it launches in late 2022).

In any case, the above photo looks like an ID8 wide screen to me, just not very rounded like on the i4? Doesn't look like a 3er/ID7 screen to me at least. Nobody said the screen would be identical everywhere.

Finally, what the test mules have as infotainment at this point of development is not really a conclusive hint at what will show up in the production car.

Plus philosophically speaking, if BMW paired S58 with a DCT, they would then have to answer the question as to why they are keeping the redline low at 7200 when DCT can easily handle the 7600 engine limit. If they raise it on a mass production model like an M2, the M3/4 & X3/4M owners will be up in arms.
7200 is ZF8 max rpm...

DKG was able to handle a lot more paired with S65 engine.
