If you’re a follower of this site, there’s a good chance that you want a BMW M2. In fact, everyone wants an M2, regardless of the person’s brand of choice. So we really don’t have to give you reasons to buy a BMW M2. However, if you are on the fence about the M2, which is hard to imagine, here are some reasons to buy BMW’s latest M Division creation.

4. Price/Value: The BMW M2 is BMW’s new baby M car, as it’s the smallest and cheapest from the famed motorsport division. But not only is the M2 the cheapest way to get into the most famous performance subdivision in the world, but it’s also incredible value. The BMW M2 comes, essentially, fully loaded, with all of the options anyone could ever want as standard. This makes buying an M2 very simple: pick you color and sign the papers. So, for not much more than the cost of a moderately loaded M235i, you can get a basically fully loaded M2 that has much more power and performance with all of the same practicality. So, as far as deals go, the BMW M2 is a no-brainer.

3. Rarity: While the BMW M2 won’t be selling the same sort of limited numbers as the 1 Series M, it won’t be sold anywhere near the number of cars like the M3 and M4. So the BMW M2 will be quite rare and probably hold a high resale value for owners. But, aside from the fact that the M2 will probably be a good investment, the M2 will also be unique on the road. So owners will be able to have an M car that they don’t see everywhere else on the road, like they do with M3s and M4s.

3. It’s Still Practical: The majority of the time, people who can afford cars like the BMW M2 are old enough to have a family and buying a sports car isn’t always a practical move. However, the BMW M2 still has back seats, albeit one for children only, and a nice sized trunk. So the M2 can be used as an everyday car and suffer no more impracticality than the standard 2 Series. And because its suspension isn’t too stiff, though it is quite firm, it can be daily driven without backache or losing teeth fillings. So it’s an everyday sports car that can be both a daily driver and a thrilling sports machine.


1. It’s An M Car Of Old: BMW fans have been pining for a car like the E46 M3 ever since it left us back in 2006, but BMW hasn’t quite delivered that to us. Until the BMW M2, that is. The M2 is everything an M car should be and the epitome of the M Division. The M2 brings back memories of when M cars were small, lightweight and agile sports cars that weren’t concerned with outright power or performance but the way they made you feel. The M2 might not be the fastest car in the world, but it makes you feel good and confident and excited. When buying a sports car, excitement is typically the top priority, much like BMW M cars of old provided. The BMW M2 provides that excitement and is the closest thing we’re going to get to cars like the E46 BMW M3. Want an old-school M car? Buy an M2.
