Spotted a G42 2 Series test vehicle

Spotted the new 2 series last night driving around Los Angeles, I assume a m240 based on the dual exhaust tips. Excuse the blurry photo of the front but that's the best I could do while driving. I managed to get up next to the car in my M2 and the test car seemed to be slightly longer and a little bulkier than my car. It was also following a 2 series gran coupe in full camo wrap so I assume that was a facelift? Excited to see what the new M2 is going to look like once revealed.

Think round tips = smaller engine. Still fun to see.

"A little bulkier" than an M2 does not sound like a good thing. Certainly hope BMW get the new 2 series coupe right, as someone above said - it is our only hope!

I wouldn't say he was speeding per-say but he was definitely enjoying the nimble handling 😂

I was referring to it being a m240 rather than a 230i
