Can’t Wait for the Launch of the New M2? Not to Worry, Dahler Will Modify Your M240i for You


You have just bought a new BMW M240i and already wish you’d waited for the next BMW M2? No problem, because the Swiss tuning company Dahler is here to fulfil your horsepower wishes.

More specifically, 449 wishes because Dahler has developed a ‘Stage 2’ upgrade package for the G42 that gives the coupe 449 hp and 472 lb ft of torque – in other words, more power than the previous M2 CS. That should be enough.

Dahler will also fit a lowered, adjustable suspension and a new stainless steel exhaust system to match the extra thrust. And then there are those wheels. We are sure you’ll have an opinion on the 20-inch forged wheels you see in the pictures above. They look suspiciously like E60 M5 wheels, do not they?

Would Dahler’s upgrades convince you to get an M240i instead of waiting for the M2?
