I wonder how big and heavy this will be. Now that the 4-series coupe is close to 190 inches long (same length as an E-Coupe) they will likely make the 2er even bigger and heavier.

Agreed. I don't see how the G Series M2 will look as good as current generation M2.
I was staring at the front end of mine in a reflection at a restaurant and I now strongly believe that the '20 M2C is the best and most cohesively designed cars they are currently manufacturing.

You and me will probably be disappointed once the length and weight are revealed of the next-generation M2.

My mind cannot gather enough words to express how ridiculously bad those taillights look like!

I just zoomed in on them! In tiny letters it says "if found, return to Honda."

The back end is quite ugly, hope they don't follow up with the leaked design. It looks like Toyota 86 on the back.

Wow I had no idea the M4 will be as long as the E coupe.

They said the next M2 will have a power bump, so I'm assuming a size/weight bump as well. It's already too heavy as it is.

I guess I'm the only one that prefers those tail lights over the current ones. I've never been a big fan of the back of a 1 series or 2 series.

They need to stop messing around with all traditional BMW elements. It's ok to preserve some stuff...

BMW's new way of making their nomenclature even more confusing than it already was. The Germans just love to overcomplicate things...

the B58 M2 retains the "40i" name and the hybrid B58 M2 retains the current "45e" name...

while the the B58 O2 is bumped to "45i" and the new B58 O2 hybrid gets the "M50e" badge.

Hopefully if that's the way it goes, it comes across less "weird" IRL.
