    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.

    I have a hunch it may be removed in Q4.

    it won’t get taken off as they can’t shift them.

    i got an email from my local dealer offering me money off. Random really as Ive never inquired.

    I’m due to change 1st March next year, so I can choose from December 1st this year (Q4). As you say, this year will be like no other. It’s all a bit strange & very unique. First of all, Brexit will have a bearing of some sort on future AP’s and the availability of certain cars if we don’t get a deal. Secondly, the “covid effect” – factories closing down across Europe, car showrooms closed once again, etc – will also mean a much smaller choice, if any choice at all. I can only see things getting worse this coming Winter.

    At least one thing is for sure; I will definitely be choosing a car in Q4 as opposed to Q1 next year… for all the reasons given above! Now all I have to do is hope that come December 1st, the country hasn’t returned to the dark days of lock-down & a Winter of discontent!

    I guarantee you’ll be as pleased as punch with it Mike – if that’s your final choice.

    I haven’t had any test drives yet. My C-HR is due a final service next month & seeing as I normally drop it off for a couple of hours or so at the Toyota dealer, I thought I would arrange a test drive in the Corolla GR Sport 2.0 and kill two birds with one stone while I’m waiting!

    The new Mk 8 Golf R-Line 1.5 DSG hybrid is also on my list. My only worry is those touchscreens & lack of any physical knobs or buttons! I’ve watched countless video reviews on the car & will have to take it out for a test drive. Pretty sure I would eventually get used to all that glass.

    Puma automatic is also on the list… just in case I still require something a little higher again than your normal hatchback. I’ve been told the auto version will be on the Q4 list early doors although no idea of AP.

    If the new Peugeot 208 GT Line came with heated seats (or even had a stand alone option to add them), then that would have been high up my list. Alas, you have to go full leather to get them & pay a whopping £1,400 for the privilege! I don’t want or need leather seats!

    Other than that Mike – not much else out there really grabs me to be honest.

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Jan, it’s a bargain on the scheme, if you get a discount, and GCB. As I explained in my previous post, the GC got off to a poor launch, and poor reviews. Hardly anyone has seen one, so I think BMW will keep it on, price may go up, but BMW seem to bounce the APs around on all models. My x1 msport, was £3k, now similar is a lot less. As soon as the new series 1, became popular the price shot up. The you-tube fan boys seem have all jumped to Mercedes, with the A class and CLA AMG varients getting massive coverage, and to be fair, their interiors and entertainment systems are second to none now. But priced on the scheme the GC is fantastic value and style, and with Idrive 7.</p>
    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Picking up mine, on Tuesday, taking it cross country on wednesday. Will post a review asap.</p>

    From an email by the dealer, on personalizing mods for the GC, a black performance grill fitted is £190, floor projector lights, with the bmw logo, £92, Red stop start button £113.

    I have the projector lights on the X1, fitted them myself, great talking point, cant find the OEMs, so they will have to stay,. I am tempted by the black grill which is £120, on it’s own. Will wait to what the car looks like before jumping, not many after market mods being so new. Had loads for the X1.

    Lord, I thought the lights onto the floor came with the m sport package?

    There are lights but not logo projector lights, I think the puddle light is from the wing mirror. If you think something like the bat signal, it replaces the door puddle lights and you can have any logo, ie, mini, m sport, bmw. I have the bmw round logo on all doors on my X1, which I installed. I will have to check next week.

    there’s a video of the 218i M-Sport which shows the floor light in action at 3:00 min in. Is the light that reflects into the floor the one we would get as M-Sport standard?

    Brad great spot,

    I thought there were puddle lights, these seem to in the fold out mirrors, they are normally in the bottom of the doors, which makes sense as you open the door, the cabin lights dim and the puddle lights illuminate, I love the projector logo lights only about £15 on ebay easy to fit too. I will have to check, on tuesday. BMW are always a bit coy on the embellishments, there is a small interior led in the door handle, that illuminates the glove pockets too. I just love lights. My only concern is the dash led, ends a bit short, and not sure if has the door handle lights on the exterior, as my X1.

    It’s worth remembering that the BMW in the video is the Australian version. Different countries have different kit of course.

    I also asked the bmw online chat if it’s standard with M-Sport, they said the “extended Light package” is standard on all M-Sport models for the 2 series GC. Who knows

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Brad, I will find out Tuesday afternoon. Just not sure how they work as puddle lights if they are shining down from under the wing mirror???</p>

    Surely they’re the same thing though Lord Muc?
