It will outhandle any BMW!
Less is moAr...! (we can only hope..^)
Don't get me wrong, enthusiasm is a good thing but how could you know all these will really happen? A deepening global economic crisis in 2013 and we will end up with no M2 or Z2 or M1 supercar etc. just the M performance models, diesels and maybe electrics will continue strong because they make more "sense". Simple as that. Do you have an idea how long it took for the BMW board to authorize the 1M which was relatively cheap and easy due to its "parts bin" character? So, let's celebrate when we see the details (weight, power, design and so).
