I think they suit the car well. Doesn't look so great from smaller side angles but from a distance IMO helps to give the car a good poise and stance. Looks better in picture 2 next to the Range Rover than next to the TT for example. The competition sounds good in the C.Harris video too. I was thinking the original M2 sounds much better inside the car (going by video's only not drives), maybe it does, but the competition sounds pretty good in that vid. If I wanted one the decision would be whether to go used or just stump up the extra 10-£15k for a new Competition. With cars holding their values pretty well it makes new more tempting.
