I could've sworn that Scott26 mentioned a M2 Grand Coupe as the competitor for the CLA45AMG and S3...

I was always under the impression that BMW was considering using the 2 series as the basis for the sub 3er four door since it would utilize RWD. I really can't see BMW developing a FWD ///M car. That just doesn't make sense.
