I think the guys working on this know how much EVERYONE hates the 4 series grill and put an extra short opening on the camouflage over this one.

BMW having already designed the g chassis 2 series to be powered by a 4 cylinder mill decides to have BMW M designe an S variant of the B48 which can already derive from its P48 variant in the 4 series DTM cars. Mates it to RWD and a 6 speed manual. This would be a modern day return to the original M3. Not to mention the m235i weighs in at 2600lbs as a sedan with xdrive. A 450 hp m2 weighing in at 2500lbs would have the same power to weight ratio as a 650hp s55 powered M2comp. And for a competition example the new m2 could feature an xdrive system much like the new m3/m4 with available rwd capability. Thoughts anyone?
I don't know how you are getting these weights because they are wrong by more than 1000 lbs! Lol

All I know is next time I weigh myself I hope you are the one who designed the scale!!!

Scott26 has said the next 2er is going to have the bigger/longer grilles, but not as extreme as the new 4er. I'm hoping it will be like the 3.0 CSL Homage Concept.

This is being different without destroying the design. Not the current G80 garbage.

Not sure why they couldn't do this with the G80

I agree. This isn't bad. The new 4 is just god awful. I just saw an ad for it and BMW only show the back 3/4 view. Hahahah

Looking forward to an M2 with and S58 and 6MT.

Looks bigger than the old one so not the same size as the e46m3 which was one of the bonuses of the old one that it had the same wheel base as the e46

What's wrong with the F22 build quality? I had an M240i for 3 years and I never had a single complaint about build quality.

less ugly but still ugly. why. why bmw? Did the company never hear of focus groups?

On a wide, low car a tall grill looks ugly and makes the car look ungainly. If BMW designers feel a need to stretch the grill, stretch it horizontally, not vertically. The current Merc grills are so much nicer.

Particularly interior and trim quality, use of materials such as harder plastics and attention to details when compared to say a 3 series.

The M2/M2C does have more hard plastic, but the quality of the materials are superb. Fit and finish is as good as any BMW sold today.
