Yes the Mustang and Camaro are too big. I drove an M4 back when I owned my GT350 and I found the engine to be bland. I considered an M2 at the time but I couldn't get a test drive back then. BMW manual transmissions definitely are nice, and I like the size of the M2 a lot more than the Mustang or Camaro.Size is why I consider the Camaro and Mustang to be more of "grand tourers" or "muscle cars" than sports cars. Hot take - they're big cars.
Admittedly it's a somewhat arbitrary definition but I'm sure I am not the only person who would classify these cars this way.
The other thing I didn't like about that M4 is that the buttons in the interior seemed sticky. They weren't functioning very well and it was nearly new. I came out feeling like the BMW looked expensive and cost a lot, but had cheap switch gear. Maybe someone spilled a can of soda on it or something and I had a misperception, though. How do you like the interior controls in your M2?
I think the last good M3 was the E92. I don't really like the turbo 6 power plants very much. They make power fine, but sound crappy. I think Camaros look good. Their main issues are ergonomics and usability.If you think a ZL1 is ugly, then you're a flat retard. The m2 is ugly and the new M cars look horrendous. Sorry to break it to you.
The last good M car was the E36 lol
