Didn't SCOTT say something to the effect that we wouldn't see the M2 until sometime in 2015? If that is indeed the case, I would think it would be sometime in 2014 that one could be ordered.

You could probably "reserve" first spot in line at a dealership with a deposit as well. That's how it worked at mine when we were waiting for the debut of the 1M.

I am seriously excited for this car. This is what the 3 series should be.

Not that I was crazy about all of Bangle's designs - hardly - but BMWs seem to be getting really generic. Nothing to me that ever says "must have."

Will have to see the details on this one. Only "must have" for me these days is the current M3. The next one I wouldn't want, based on the concept.

But on another note, BMWs are getting more reliable. Good job with that, BMW!

Very interesting indeed. It looks like they may have done away with the 1 series' cute/feminine proportions. I've been interested in purchasing an M4 when available, but the M2 is starting to turn the gears in my head. I'm looking for something a bit more pure than the M4 I think.

BTW this is exactly what's happening with Porsche. The Cayman S is becoming what the 911 used to be - a purist driver's car, while the 911 is becoming bloated. Looks like the M2 may be that purist car that we haven't seen from BMW since the E46.

No must have?

M5?
M6GC?
M6?
750i?
X5/X5M?

Besides the beloved M3 I would say BMW has a good line up to pick from

These 'crease lines' under the camo... artifact? or will there be some interesting lines on the bumper under the headlights?

Some of it's subjective, I know - but the previous generations of their models seemed to me - stylistically speaking - cleaner, less cluttered, more distinctive, whereas now they now seem more homogenous.

The ones you've mentioned do have some nice lines though.

from the spy shots of the M235i a few weeks ago, the look to be squared off.



I kinda like the squared off look. My dream for this car is for it to get as many features/options as possible in the small package of the 2er. Black panel display, LED headlights, etc.

i like the squared off look too, but i doubt they will load it up with luxury options per their usual marketing strategy.

Gap between lights and grille too wide. This ain't going to be an elegant looker like the 3 or 4

Looks to me the headlights continuing to the grill is being covered up like the 3er when it had camo. If you look closely you can tell the headlights continue further to the grill.

It's a fake grill. Part of the camo.

Time will tell. The slats between the grilles are too far apart on F20 and F30 IMO

I highly doubt they will connect to the kidney grills.
