Awesome spec

Really looks nice. Seems like it would be impossible to pick Bucky the Beaver 4er over this.

Beautiful color, acceptable front end, horrible rear end. Kia Rio looks better from the back.

Whoever decided it was a good idea to paint the lower portion of the G-series cars in black needs a lesson in design.
It looks rubbish on the 3 & 4 series & now on the 2 series also.

Those M Contour wheels on the E36 are still some of my all time faves...

Looks excellent. Except from the back end. Really hope the M2 delivers all the goods & the looks too!

I always feel like MR looks better in pictures- in particular indoor pictures- than it does in real life. Whenever I see it under sunlight, I see too much orange in it for my taste. But these pics make the color look great. I had to go with the purple though. Just because.

Rear end still looks a bit goofy.
