Makes me wonder what the M4 will be like. How different can all these cars be with in essence the same engine.

I'm impressed with the M135i, the new models should always be faster than previous and pushing the boundaries.
It would be pretty hard to market a M2 with a turbo 4 now with the M135 and possibly M235, but I really like the idea of a lighter M2. With the Mercedes A45 rumoured to be around 350bhp (which is above the 1M stock) with a T4 there might still be some hope.

However, if the M2 comes substantially lighter with the honeycomb CF parts found on the CRT with kerb weight close to 1400kg with a very technical ///M T4 or TT4 putting out similar figures to current 1M, then the ///M badge (for marketing) might able to do its job. Well, at least I would be happy to part my $ for one over M235.
