Where did you get that information?
My comment is based the popularlity and reputation of 135i coupe. The N54 is a very capable engine with broad responsive power. Can a 4 cylinder match the smoothness? Can it match the same power delivery? Will it be as durable for the M2 as a car intended for track use?
Personally I wouldn't be prepared to pay as much for a 4 cylinder. To me it seems like a bit of a "toy car". I think many others will agree.
