+1 I truly think the lack of "hot" colors for the M235 is a good indication of what we will see available for the M2...

I'm excited about the upcoming M2. It should be significantly better than the 1M with the suspension and tire upgrades, and an available DCT. Exciting times are ahead.
+1 here as well. There is a VO 1M in my general area - my 135 is a nice Lemans Blue, but it doesn't hold a candle to the 1M. It has that short wheelbase, bulldog looking stance, and I love it. I am still pissed I didn't position myself to get one...won't make that mistake again with the M2.

And even if the M235 is "faster" (and I have one on order) my guess is that a lot of it has to do with the PSS tires it is riding on. The suspension, brakes, torque, and feel should all be better with the 1M - only the BHP is basically a wash. Which is fine - the M235 isn't a "real" ///M car...but it hangs pretty well with the 1M and E92 M3, at least on paper. Should bode well for the M2, because it will be even better.
