I'll fly the flag for the minority opinion from the E82 camp.

I think the 2-er, especially, the M235 looks fantastic. It addresses and fixes a lot of the design issues I see with the current 1-series. Yes, even my 1M.

I love how my little bruiser looks from every angle but the front three quarters where the car just looks stunted and bloated. It's somewhat lessened with very aggressive fender flares and the aero kit on the 1M, but it's not sleek and low like the E9x M3 to me.

The new 2 looks to be a lovely mix of the butch-badassery of the E82-1 and the sleek, sharkiness of the E9x 3.

Can't wait for the M2.

The 1 series M is the most badass, coolest, sickest BMW to debut since the 1988 M3. The E30 M3 finally has a successor. Please welcome the stupidly fast, wickedly tempered, awkwardly named, possibly perfect little son of a benchmark - Automobile Magazine, August 2011
