I agree. I just think it's going to be really hard for them performance-wise and price-wise to slot an M2 between an M235 and an M4. And if they do, it'll cut deeply into sales of a 435. So, I think they've painted themselves into a weird corner and like you, I think they kinda split the difference and decided to call it the M235i then which basically is the same as a 135 with the PPK. Perhaps they'll just make a special version that has a small performance bump and cost $5k more? M235is?
