Yesterday I went through this M2 thread on Bimmerpost. The conversation is heated at times with a decent level of backlash against the 718. And while we're mostly fanboys on this forum, I'd love to have everyone's objective opinion about the ways in which the M2 is a better car the 718 and vice versa. Personally, I used to drive a 135i and l really liked this car. In fact I wish I could have kept it if I didn't have move to San Francisco. Since I'm coming back to Boston I'm hesitating between the M2 and the 718. Despite my positive experience with the 135, I'm heavily leaning towards the Porsche. I also had the chance to drive the new Cayman and the M2 back to back last month. The M2 is an amazing machine but I didn't get the connection I got with the Porsche. Kind of difficult to describe: I would own the M2 but I would really love to own the Cayman. Anyways, thanks for sharing your thoughts!
