    Re: New M2 leaked…

    I really like the front and the side view but do not like the back yet, it is too bulky and weird. However, I think the looks will grow on me over the coming months.

    Most importantly, the prices of the old M2 Comp should drop, looking for a good deal on one.


    Re: New M2 leaked…

    Hmm, I actually find the M2 refreshing, especially against the repulsive M3/M4 giant pig nose. 

    The pics posted by Gnil with performance kits on looks quite purposeful.

    Re: New M2 leaked…

    What is the weight with the automatic?

    I don't mind the looks I think it will look well on certain colors (it looks like a sports car from the 80s with aftermarket body kit).


    Re: New M2 leaked…

    Around 1720 kg… Not light.

    I have recently developed FOMO for German front engined coupes having never owned a BMW or Mercedes. I know...incredible given the number of cars I have had over the years Smiley. Anyway, I was far too late to the party. No allocation for C63 Final Edition or M4 CSL. So now the only option is the new M2 Smiley.


    Re: New M2 leaked…

    My brother had the previous M2 in manual, and while the handling was pretty impressive, the car itself was quite underwhelming to drive.  I didn't really see what all the hype is about to be honest.  I put about 5,000 kms on the vehicle myself, between mountain drives, daily use, and two track session near my place.  M2 owners have said that it's because it was a manual car, and that the dsg is a much more fun drive,   yes


    Re: New M2 leaked…

    Hmmmm...I found it a riot to drive: small car with big engine, what's not to like?

    That got me thinking and countingSmiley And you are not alone.

    Over the years, after like 70+ cars, I think I have ever owned exactly ONE German front engine coupe. That would be the 968 I bought two years ago. Before that, I had a Mercedes CLK500, but that's a convertible so not a coupe. Every other Mercedes BMW Audi I have ever bought was either a SUV or a 4 door sedan.

    Re: New M2 leaked…

    Wow. You guys have never owned even an M3? The E46 was brilliant when it first came out. I think it was the first NA engine in a production car putting out over 100 HP per litre. It remains the only car I regret selling.

    The E36-M3 already had 100Hp/liter, it was the second car I owned, loved that L6 NA engine, and the RWD with mech limited slip.

    Not in North America. surprise

    Oh that's right, I remember know, the E36-M3 had I believe only 250HP in North America for some reason?

    Agreed, loved my E46 M3.  To my eyes, M Cars have not been appealing since.

    240hp for both the 3.0L (1995) and the 3.2L (1996+)
