For those that don't want to wait 10 minutes to find out - the M2 is the winner here, though the other M4's are nice too.

The e92 m3 sounds the best

But the e46 csl or e92 crt are pretty awesome cars

The M2 is just the perfect car - I think.

Am I the only that gets bored seeing terrible comparisons that have ridiculous outcomes?

An M2 over a GTS? Seriously? Who here would like to publicly admit the M2 is a better M car than the GTS? We aren't talking "Bang for the Buck" or DD.

BEST M CAR.

What's worse is some people watch this shit and run with the asinine narrative like it's gospel

agreed the comparison is way out there the two cars have no commonality. Other than the brand... the e46 M3gts the e90 M3gts are the m4gts stablemates

I think many of these channels are coming out with "ridiculous outcomes" because it gets them more views. Word travels and people want to see what the fuss is about.

But playing devils advocate, I guess it depends on what the definition of the "Best M car" is. If its the best M car for me, then its the M2. I could have bought an M3 or M4 but didn't want one and I can't get my hands on a GTS so.....

I don't get these comparisons. All the cars have a different price point and are aimed at different markets.

If I had the funds to purchase a GTS, I wouldn't be bothered looking at an M2.

I have an M2 on order and as I was lucky enough to drive it at launch and next to the M3 and M4 as well and as I said then, it's a great car but it wasn't like the M4.

It's perfect for me as I couldn't stretch to an M4, but I am not that delusional to think it's a better car than an M4, let alone a GTS.

Haven't driven a GTS M4. I have driven a "regular" M4. I've also driven an M2. I can afford either. I want an M2. The M2 represents to me what an M3 used to be. That's what I want. So it's better for me.
