Didn't see anyone post this yet. Coming from an E46 M3 I love the concept of the video

Simultaneous power slides were very cool.

Beautiful footage and stunning cars - I love the sentence at the end "We hope BMW keeps listening" and with the massive coverage the 1M and M2 has got for exactly the clean driving fun, one can hope they do

Very enjoyable, the narrator sounds like the parrot in Rio though... love the cars. Valencia Orange is such a rich colour!

I have the privilege to own both Cars in BSM. Both are unique in there own way. I still like the hydraulic suspension more you fear the car better but the technology in the M2 make you fear enjoyment for your DD.

Nice video. Would have liked to have seen an e46 m3 in there given the similarities.

Very visually appealing. Great video eye candy.

No cones or tires were injured during the making of this video.

I agree. I would love to see all 3 mentioned in the video with the 1M and M2. Z4M coupe, E46 M3, E39 M5 plus these two would be a fun comparison test

Just curious what 'similarities' are you referring to?

Well, in general the F87 M2 is thought of being a modern day sort of turbo E46 M3. There are many similarities including overall dimension and vehicle personality. It's the first car that has brought that 'pure feeling' from bmw in a while and we all know the E46 was well respected in that regard (besides the limited 1M of course)

First car that truly made me give up my 10 year E46 ownership and others have done the same switch as well. The E9x was pushing it for size IMHO.... the current F8x is way larger than it should be for an M3.

Clearly things like size, power, 0-100, crowd they appeal to, marketing.
