You may have lucked out. Damn, now I want M2!
i think the m2 has potential for sure. i certainly hope it is eventually offered in some sort of 4 door varient as that would be a great DD for me at that time as i will be a little older then.
however, i am concerned about the electric power steering. i have experience with this in a few newer cars and really disliked it. i prefer the heavy balanced feel of well executed hydraulic steering.
i hope they can figure it out on the new m cars.
