BMW having already designed the g chassis 2 series to be powered by a 4 cylinder mill decides to have BMW M designe an S variant of the B48 which can already derive from its P48 variant in the 4 series DTM cars. Mates it to RWD and a 6 speed manual. This would be a modern day return to the original M3. Not to mention the m235i weighs in at 2600lbs as a sedan with xdrive. A 450 hp m2 weighing in at 2500lbs would have the same power to weight ratio as a 650hp s55 powered M2comp. And for a competition example the new m2 could feature an xdrive system much like the new m3/m4 with available rwd capability. Thoughts anyone?
I don't know how you are getting these weights because they are wrong by more than 1000 lbs! Lol

All I know is next time I weigh myself I hope you are the one who designed the scale!!!
don't read this. too late...
