With due respect to the 1M owners out there, BMW M isn't in the habit of lessening the brand appeal (and performance) of successive ///M models(and I mean true ///M models). The 1M was put together relatively quickly and turned out to be a fabulous car. The M2 will have a longer development time and the results are bound to be....even better than fabulous!! And this includes the design which, according to the spy photos and NOT some of the bad renderings), will hold true to the 1 er formula.
