If I recall correctly that was the way the M2 was looking a few months back. I think it would take some people a while to wrap their heads around that. But I think it could lead to some exciting possibilities.
So basically.. 235i.. 235i with bodykit and tune for a price increase that isn't viable.. So price:equal performance should be better off with 235i (like 135i vs 1m) And the m2 (2m more likely?) which is the 235is with a better tune and lsd and wide body (and bigger brakes etc) for a WAY bigger price increase
If it's a real m2 and not a 2m... Well that's a bit different and will certainly be miles ahead of the 235is
