// Posted in BMW

We all know that BMW will make an M2 when the time is right. So let’s just play along with these little games and pretend that we don’t know it’s coming. At the recent media launch of the M235i hacks from Auto Express got talking to “BMW insiders” (we love those guys) and were told […]
