    Can't see why this car needs camo.

    My point is Cadillac needs, at the least, an ATS-sized coupe.

    Should really be compared to 6-series in weight.

    But ATS Coupe is still projected for the future.

    Why M235i? Why not just M2?

    What will BMW do when it runs out of numbers from 1 to 9? It seems that they are have car coming out just bridge gaps between numbers.


    "Und vetz zee, we have zee 1 series und zee 3 series, vee need zee 2 series and zee 4 series too, now all zee numbahs are covered! Then vee vill begin zee verk on zee 8 und zee 9 series too"

    Also, I love how there is a 2 series FORUM for a car that isn't even out yet.....

    And as someone else stated, why is even camoed? It looks pretty much like every other BMW made and that will be made....

    Let me get started on my 7 gen Camaro forum now.

    I think it's kinda goofy but the M235i will slot between the 235 and the eventual M2. More of an M sport or Lexus does an F sport that isn't the real F. I wish the manufacturers would save their top names for the top cars only and not water them down.

    They are not totally different cars. The odd numbers are the sedans and the even number are the coupes on the same platform as the sedans.

    1 sedan 2 coupe
    3 sedan 4 coupe
    5 sedan 6 coupe
    7 sedan 8 coupe (if they do it again)
