Paul Mihai’s Issues with Performance Model
The BMW M2 has garnered rave reviews, its speed and clout making it undeniably a top-tier performance vehicle you can acquire these days. Notwithstanding, not every person is keen on its design – a proprietor of the previous M2 model expressing his disapproval or more explicitly, manifold observations about the modernized coupe.
Paul Mihai, a staunch motor vehicle lover from Sweden and previous-generation M2 possessor, expresses his opinions on the M2 (G87) in an innovative 12-minute YouTube clip. He kicks off by talking about the most contentious topic – the car’s design – admitting that it appears as if somebody at BMW has been to Walmart and acquired components from the motor vehicle personalization shelf. He gets why the car looks the way it does, but queries why it hosts such large wheel gaps.
Paul has been singing praises for the interior of the BMW M2. He was particularly impressed with its fitting, quality and seating. For a compact car performance, it is up to its expected standard. His only qualm in the cabin is that although the new model is bigger than its foregoer, the legroom and headroom have decreased.
Admittedly, Paul is hard pressed to find fault with the latest M2; its sheer speed, superlative handling and even some level of practicality cannot be dismissed. However, there are several aspects which fail to impress him. To start, the gearbox seems inadequate for the impressive S58 engine: according to Paul, it cannot match up to the earlier model’s dual-clutch transmitting system when it comes to shifting agility and response.
The most severe issue for Paul has nothing to do with the M2’s capability. What he isn’t partial to is the point that the vehicle presents itself nearly indistinguishable to the bigger M4 in a more diminutive package. He promptly examines the M2, M4, and M3 regarding measurements, weight, and execution details. “It’s not anymore the lesser officeholder, it’s no longer the more diminutive and lively M4. It’s merely an alternate looking one.”
Does one agree with Paul? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments area below.
