Check out the Autocar Road test and my old friend Steve Sutcliffe comparing the M2 1M and M4!
Here we have a fabulous example of BMW’s best M Car to date, the M2! Its finished in the fabulous Mineral Grey Metallic with Black Dakota Leather with Blue Stitching. Its a one owner car and having traveled just 800 miles it looks and smells brand new! Its the drivers choice 6 speed manual gearbox too! and there is now a 13 month waiting list for this model! Additionally its just had a Supaguard Paint and Interior Protection treatment too!
Standard equipment is comprehensive and Includes 19″ M Sport Alloys, BMW Sat Nav, Air Conditioning, Bluetooth, Adaptive Damping, DSC, Active Differential. Extra cost options include Visibility Package and Sun Protection package.
This is the pure M car. While the engine may be the same basic unit from the M2’s lesser sibling, there’s a whole lot of M4 DNA lurking in it. The pistons, cooling system and crankshaft have all been transplanted into the M2. The brakes and M rear differential have been carried over from the M4 as have parts of the exhaust system, too. The result is a dazzling cocktail of speed, poise and accessibility. In an M4 you almost have to have as much faith in the electronic safety aids as you do your own talent to really get the best out of it. But the M2 is characterized by how approachable its performance is right up until the limit, and even there it remains compliant and controllable.
Evo magazine awarded a rare 5 star rating and said …..
On a warm, dry circuit the M2 is a riot. There’s a lovely balance to the car with strong front end grip and then easy, progressive oversteer that belies its short wheelbase.’ Jethro Bovingdon

Mr Clarkson was extremely impressed too, not bad for a self confessed BMW hater! http://www.driving.co.uk/car-reviews/the-clarkson-review-2016-bmw-m2/
