The M2 hangs in with the M4 just fine despite a tire disadvantage. In the skilled hands of a driver like Randy Pobst the M2 is actually quicker on some tracks than the M4 despite being undertired and underpowered compared to it's big brother. There's a lot more going on with the M2 than just tires that separate it from the M420i.

Even though I went with an M4 because I got a borderline insane deal...this was the draw to the M2 for me...the performance and that body are just nuts!

At no point did I say the M240i would be transformed into an M2 with tires. Clearly you love your M2 and why shouldn't you, it's a great car. I'm trading my M235i for a M2 Competition so I get it.

Thanks. That pic was taken when I had Dinan springs installed. I have taken them off now since my car is going up for sale soon. I have mixed emotions about selling this car. Overall it is a good package for everyday use.

While the M2 is at the dealership where they are trying to fix a nasty rattle in my driver door, they sent me away in an AWD M240. Totally impressed with the acceleration from standstill! I don't think I would stand a chance with my 6MT M2 (if it mattered to me). But this is where the excitement ends for me with the M240. For sure a great thing to have the AWD in winter, but I was more than underwhelmed with a) the transmission (be it as quick as it is on paper) and more importantly b) by how it is planted on the road. This is where the M2 absolutely shines in comparison. Zero regrets not to have gone for the M235/240 instead, my loaner just re-assured me of my decision. Can't wait to have my M2 back under my butt!
