I really hope those front fender flares are cladding and aren't that sharp/pronounced in the final version. I personally like the front end treatment from the recent renders but those flares on the camo car look really strange.

Front end looks like a cardboard kit you can buy from China for $249.99 plus tax and shipping.

Well for one, the large multi spoke wheels look like ones that seem to generally come on the competition models, so that's kind of a give away right there in my eyes. Could it be a regular M2 with comp wheels? Sure I guess. But probably not.

I like the wheels. I wonder if they are lighter than my 788m's and if they would fit?

0:51 good shot of the power bulge. Looks similar to the F8x just wider.

Oh yeah probably same concept. Lower powered version gets manual. Higher powered torque converter only.

I wish the G87 could just remain simple like the 1M and F87 M2 were. Too much complication = a heavier and less focused car. M2 customers tend to be very pure enthusiast types, let the M3/4 appease the pseudo-enthusiasts.

Edit: that's not a knock on the M3/4 or the people here who own them. Just that model inherently attracts more badge types than the M2 does.

Sadly they won't; the G series have a different bolt pattern than the F cars.

My biggest disappointment with the new 2 series is the taillights and I initially assumed the G87 would inherit the identical taillights and the trunk from G42. However, after carefully looking into the spy shots, I see that the taillight design and the trunk line on the G87 are different compared to G42. Looks like G87 might have the 2-piece taillight design with a different trunk line around the taillights. Not sure if this has been mentioned before and it might be a stupid theory based on a car that is covered in camo but maybe there is still some hope

At least it appears BMW dumped the damn triangles used on the G42 M240i.

Hate to say, but the G42 spy shots looked just like this.
