When it came out, the M2 Competition blew us all away with its classically correct combination of large(r) engine, small car, and rear-wheel drive. Then it surprised us again after reports came out alleging that its bigger engine came not simply as a way to make it better, but as a way to make it more efficient for Johnny Law, too.

Now, we finally know how much this hot rod will cost and itís $58,900 (plus $995 destination). Thatís quite the price jump over the departing M2, which started off at $55,495.

It, though, only made 365 hp, while the M2 Competition makes a healthy 405 hp. And that's quite the power jump.

If youíre willing to spend a little more, you can also get the Executive Package for an extra $850. That adds a heated steering wheel (irrelevant), adaptive LED headlights (meh), automatic high beams (unnecessary), wireless phone charging (does that work if the phone is flying around the cockpit?), and a speed limit monitor (???).

Buyers can also fit their M2 Competition with an M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic (donít), which adds an extra $2,900 onto the price tag. A moonroof adds another grand, and metallic paint adds $550.

Order books for the M2 Competition open this week, so get your checkbooks ready.

That heated steering wheel and speed limit monitor are stupid options that aren't so stupid after all, once you have them. I want them on all of my future BMW's.

I've bought seven new passenger cars for my own use. All of them have had manual transmissions. But, I'm on the fence about DCT/PDK vs. manual in my next go-fast car. Turbocharging has taken a lot of the joy out of having a manual transmission, at least under light loads. In normal driving, my naturally aspirated Chevy Cobalt SS is more fun to snick through the gears than my 535i.

The M2 Competition Package (mandatory on 2019 M2's, at least in the US) might end up being "free." BMW intentionally limited the production of the original M2 to not steel sales from the M3/4. With the current M3/4 going out of production soon, there will be no reason for BMW to continue limiting the production of M2. Increased supply means one thing: lower price, as least lower dealer mark-up.

My guess is that M240i sales will tank with an increased availability of CP-ed M2's.

heated steering wheel is not only good but necessary if you live in place like canada or you would have to wear gloves in winter, which is also acceptable depends on individual preference
