Tell me, why do people doubt the focus of this new M2..? Could it be the previous lip-service us enthusiasts get... instead of buyable products?
We want the M2 to happen and happen in the way that you envisage. Just the recent facts and tendencies make some of us (like me) more skeptical. By the way, there is a front page thread in bimmerpost going full speed now about a Bill Casswell (Jalopnik) article about the "death of M". Interesting read and I recommend to everyone.
