The front of the red one looks off but the back end is spot on.

I think it will be close, but the side fender vent will likely be different.

The front quarter panels will be similar to the M235i R.. as noted by Scott.

Style over substance
Take your point but it is possible to have both, i love my 1M both for its bulldog looks and its M bits.

This render made me pass on the M4, it had better look exactly like this


Note to BMW: The BMW racing M235i rear flare arches need to extend all the way down to the base of the sill if that is your design idea for the M2.

I LOVE the 1M's fenders or "hips" as the wife refers to them. While the m235i and thoughts of the M2 are slowly growing on me, it's the "hips" I have an issue with. The 1Ms hips are like that of a sexy woman's mid section and small waist and gradually curving outward towards her hips. The M2's hips are like that of a sexy woman whose already had a couple of kids. Yes she still has hips and is sexy, but they're more boxy and don't have that sexy gradual curve leading out to the outer most part. So looking at the 2 series car from a side view it looks plain and sort of flat around the rear fender. The 1's curve bends the light off the paint on the fender and makes you want to view it from a rear quarter view to see those sexy hips.

Seriously, you should write for Playboy Magazine, you know, in the section called, 'This really happened to me'.

I hope the change from standard 2 series to the M2 is as drastic as the M3 to the 3 series

It isn't the stark performance contrast any more.
Add to your list:

Bigger brakes
Carbon Fiber/lightweight parts
Significant body/chassis stiffening
Improved cooling
Improved transmissions
Better seats

The F80 is the most highly modified M car yet. The F80 and F30 are completely different driving experiences. The M2 won't be over 400hp and probably won't have all the expensive Carbon Fiber bits (Maybe just the roof if we're lucky) but it will be as much of an M car as any other, and more so than the 1M.
