replied to the thread Nobody knows what the hell they are talking about regarding a 2015+ BMW F22 M2
" Whatever they do, I'm sure it will sell, I mean look at the current value of the 1M. You could literally build two 135i's with the body kit, ,superior suspension and all for the same price as a used 1M.
Now, about this, "what //M is" and "historical M". Lets go back a bit. There were really only 2 generations, and maybe 3 or 4 //M cars that seem to truly stack up to the "//M" way. The e30 M3, e36 M3, and e39 M5. Is it really just to say //M is what it is based on 3 models of cars they built 30 years ago? For me, no, it's not, and to me //M means enhanced performance from base BMW models, how ever little or many changes it takes to do it.
Having said that, it would be nice to see //M stay a little bit more exclusive in the BMW lineup and BMW come up with some other badge for the lighter modified performance enhanced cars, like the 1M. "
