Over the last eight months we've been modifying a BMW M135i - it's now faster and more powerful than an M2.

In this video we explain exactly what work we've done to the M135i, then answer the big question: how does it compare to BMW's own baby M-car?

You can make anything go faster than M2. But M2 is still M2. I am not even fan of BMW (except for E46CSL and E39 M5).

Half the price.. but how much was the insurance premium for all those mods, and what's it done to realworld emissions - sure it might be taxed at some rate coming out of the factory but is it going to kill us all the more easily? :p

Good question about running costs but the M135i has a huge upfront price advantage and if you are that worried about real world emissions you wouldn't buy an M2 either, it would be an i3 or a Zoe or a bicycle or new walking shoes.
