I'm a little confused about the engine strategy between the M235i and upcoming M2. All reports so far have said 4-cyl M2. How are they going to differentiate that model enough to overcome the 320hp and torque advantage of the N55? Maxed out 4cyl turbo engines usually come in low 300hp from the factory(STi, EVO, etc.). There better be quite a bit of weight savings to justify stepping up to M2.
