OK I read that wrong. My bad.

But the M2 is STILL the most bestest ///M ever, the spiritual successor to the E46 M3 which was also the most bestest ///M ever and the M4 is a fat cow no matter what your silly numbers say. So there.

Look at that front end, THAT is how a clean/handsome/elegant design looks like
They should give their concept designers the main job

Don't quite understand why people are putting so much stock on 2 blurry pictures that doesn't even show the entire car.

Just my personal opinion, but the G87 is one of the cars I'm really excited about. I haven't been this excited about a car since the M2 originally came out which feels like ages ago. I know this thread is about the G42 but hear me out on the G87

- S58 with 6MT. How many combos like this do we have left? It's early days, but the engine has seemed very reliable, and same with the B58 it's based on
- 35UP interiors, while not the most visually exciting, are pretty high quality, especially compared to their predecessors
- While people may argue about the cars looks (prematurely IMO), there's no denying that the EPS will be an upgrade over the previous cars. Put that down to more development
- I expect the car to be around 3500 lbs, which it is what it is. That's OK for cars nowadays

The only thing I hope they keep "reasonable" is the price, which I think the current M2C nails. If they can build on that recipe, it'll be a wonderful car.

I'm not super excited about the direction of where the car industry is headed, but I'm really hopeful for this car.

Front wouldn't be too bad if it had normal BMW style headlights

Pretty sure that, after marketing the new 4er as a distant successor to the 3.0 CS and even launching it in a similar color...

...they are going to market the new 2er as a distant successor to the 1600/2002, and to be fair the single headlights and the tail lights graphic are related:

Heritage already hinted to by the 2002 Hommage Concept:

BMW is obsessed with odd "throwbacks" that have no stylistic taste and most people won't appreciate.

They prioritize that stuff over actual style and that's their issue. E.g. they think a BMW "throwback" makes a car more visually attractive to the average person, and is more important than designing a car which actually looks sleek and attractive.

I could really give two F's if the new 2er has single headlights because the 2002 did. Doesn't change the fact it looks sh*t

Please just keep the M version under 180 inches long and under 3,600 lbs. Is that too much to ask?
