I know a few of us have ordered or are looking at ordering the 2 GC.
This thread is to monitor delivery times and specs.
Please comment if you have ordered one, with which spec and your lead times.

Chris the 2 series gran coupe, golf and a3 are all similar in size, if you want something bigger the q3 would be a better option or there is also the seat ateca or tarraco or the skoda kodiaqJanuary 3, 2021 at 9:49 pm #134541Chris
Ali, yeah I’ve been looking at all of them. Having choices isn’t a bad thing, right!!!January 12, 2021 at 2:49 pm #135853Chris
Hi Lord Muc,
I was just wondering if you payed extra to have the magma red leather interior. Its just my bmw dealer thinks it’s an extra you have to pay for. And also how red is it?. Thank youJanuary 12, 2021 at 6:24 pm #135887Lord Muc
chris, magma red is just another option, (free). It’s a bit more orange than red, I like it, goes well with white, black, grey, Colour options. It is an extra cost on other models, which is why the sales guy is confused. Just to add, you don’t get the red on the kick panels, under the dash, like you get with the oyster interior. Hope it helps.January 12, 2021 at 8:56 pm #135921Chris
Lord Muc, thanks, I spoke to the dealer before and she got confused with something else lol. I’ve gone very bold. I’ve went misano blue with magma red interior with sun protection glass. Like I say BOLD lolJanuary 12, 2021 at 9:42 pm #135925Footloose
i collected my misano blue GC on 30th December and it’s a great drive and puts a smile on my face every time and added to that it looks fantastic..you’ll love it 👍January 12, 2021 at 9:45 pm #135927Simon
Omg that colour combination sounds hideous. Pleased we don’t need to worry about residual value.January 12, 2021 at 9:59 pm #135930Chris
Footloose yeah now that its ordered I cant wait. I’m going from a tiguan to a coupe so a bit nervous, but I thought why not.
Simon, bit harsh so it’s a good job we are all different. When you do a search for misano blue with magma red interior the pictures look nice. In my opinion anyway. But like you say it’s not our car at the end of the day.January 12, 2021 at 11:47 pm #135943John
What was your wait time Chris? I ordered around the same time and they said April but I feel that’s unrealisticJanuary 13, 2021 at 6:43 am #135950Chris
John, they said march but I wont hold my breathJanuary 13, 2021 at 3:49 pm #136067Footloose

Decent UK review, from a quite amusing car dealer.March 5, 2021 at 5:18 pm #141684Footloose
Thanks lord Muc 👍March 5, 2021 at 6:47 pm #141687Brad
Hi all, some may know we got a 2Gc M sport on motability in late September time. We had to get rid of it for personal reasons but I have just found it online for sale online. It will be missed. For those who are interested in the spec/ where motability cars go/ the price after less than 350 miles – https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202102118952583March 5, 2021 at 7:44 pm #141689Carl
Lord muc great post, I have never seen such an enthusiastic review before.
Brad that’s so sad to see your old car for sale, hope things are OK with you.March 5, 2021 at 8:25 pm #141693Lord Muc
Carl, good luck tomorrow, i know you will be as pleased as punch, with this car, I still have do a double take, when walking away from it. Check on previous posts, if you get stuck on anything or give a shout here. Due to covid 19, handovers are short and sweet, so some of the cars excellent tech and features may get overlooked, like the folding and dipping wing mirrors, some have said the “hey bmw AI, is not there is activated, and the ability to view movies from a USB, there is always the on board manual, for tinkering.March 5, 2021 at 8:28 pm #141694Lord Muc
Brad, sorry to hear that, really nice car, and bargain at that price for someone, at around 25k.March 5, 2021 at 10:33 pm #141698Carl
Thanks lord muc, had my electronic pin from mobility. I signed electronically for the car with bmw. The sales exec was supposed to be emailing me more documents today but I didn’t recieved anything.
At the moment I’m still picking it up at 2pm tomorrow, a bit later than I wanted as I’m in hospital all morning. Really looking forward to it… As you said the handover will be a quick affair. I will have to learn as I go with all the cars kit. I will def give you a shout on here if I need advice lol.March 6, 2021 at 12:05 am #141699Jamie
I hope to god that we get the 20i engines back! The only thing putting me off the 1 series and 2 series gran coupe is the lack of power. So if that comes onto the scheme then I know my next carMarch 6, 2021 at 8:31 am #141706Lord Muc
Jamie, you need to test drive one, as long as you are not carrying 4 large adults all the time, its powerful enough, lovely, responsive, good sounding growl and smooth engine, I came from an msport x1 with 2lt engine, and have no complaints. Its not a car you fling about, like a mini.
