Photo Comparison of E92 and M2.

Just in case anyone was interested in a photo comparison between the e92 and M2. Although both cars are gorgeous, I still prefer the look of the e92.

I like the E92 better as well. The body flows well.

M2 looks like it's ready to pounce.

1/2er never looked right to me. They look to scrunched up and they look girly to me. E92 all the way although there is no doubting the insane performance of the M2

I own a E92 LCI, but that M2 is the bee's knees.

A 235i would have been a more ideal comparison to the 335i rather than a M2

Those tail lights and the gap between them on the trunk of the M2 just look like an afterthought. No gracias.

I'm right there with ya ... I much prefer BMWs before 2012. After that they kept "sculpting" them too much. Plus how they have that straight edge on the end of the hoods above the roundel bothers me ... it makes them look less refined and obviously for cost cutting.

To me, the M2 looks short and wide, whereas the E92 is pretty sleek. The profiling of the M2 is really aggressive too.

I believe that had something to do with a new Euro law, not cost cutting from what I remember.

Ok ... I can see that. I'm guessing Pedestrian impact guidelines from Europe and Asia ... kinda like how cars are wider/fatter nowadays. I'll have to research it a bit.

Thanks for the input ... still looks like a cost cutting measure ... but it's good to know it's not. To me it looks unrefined and a bit cheap. Not a fan.


I do admit .... the M2's flared fenders do look mean. Other than that ... Eh ... but still wouldn't turn one down.
