    Default G87 BMW M2 (porky)



    She’s facking porky at over 1700kg. Rear bumper design is just as hideous maybe even more so than the last M2. At least there’s a manual and auto option.

    Looks terrible. Front bumper lifted straight from a pickup truck.

    It’s not pretty.

    Probably still a better car to drive than most on the market.

    Not sure why it needed to gain so much weight but hey it’s 2022…

    I certainly won’t be lining up to order

    Do you like it for what it is or in absence of alternatives

    CLAR architecture is why it’s so damn heavy unfortunately.

    I like it. Better than the early “leaked” pics. And I bet it looks way better IRL.

    I wanted to not like it, but it’s much better looking than the new M4, which looks exactly like a mustang with a worse grill. And despite being somewhat heavy, it’s nothing crazy. All cars are heavy these days. Want something light? Buy a miata.

    After seeing a few new M cars IRL they've grown on me and I quite like them.

    This will likely be no expection.

    This looks better than that hideous purple M240 or whatever it was they released.

    Still not as nice as current gen. Same as new M3 vs old M3.

    Can't wait to see how bad they botch next gen M5

    The absence of a huge vertical grille is a big improvement alone.

    But it's no stunner, though I think it looks noticeably better than the base model. There are certain elements I think look pretty good, but there's just something that I can't quite put my finger on which looks really odd. I think it may be the shape of the side windows, and possibly the c-pillar area?

    It's not perfection (hopefully the headlights are addressed with LCI) but it looks chiseled and buff. How many cars you going to see on the road with fender bulges like that? It's like the lovechild of an E30 M3 (protruding side skirts and bulged fenders) and a R34 GTR (big rectangular front openings).

    Good photo comparison to E30 M3 here.

    Yea. Except it’s as big as an X5 ( and as pointed out above, shares a platform with one).

    I parked my 2 series, which is smaller than this, next to a coworkers e46 m3 and it dwarfed it by a huge margin.

    I think it’s an ok car in comparison to what’s currently on the market, but that is only because of the ridiculously low bar that has been set.

    It's not though so why make that comparison? What bar are you talking about here? It's not like the F87 M2 was a lightweight as it was essentially the same weight as an F84. This car is simply modern progression and you can either spend your days shouting at clouds that new cars are heavy or you can appreciate what we have now before it all goes to EV.

    Isn't BMW like VW now, where basically everything is using one modular architecture?
