For me it started with the wooden steering wheel. Something about that lacquer, smooth and grippy at the same time. It dug up old memories of a pool cue, from this time I was just out adolescence, hanging with my friends at a grown-up bar, trying to get some girl’s attention. It feels like the best part of a bygone era, like pure nostalgia and positivity. After changing into something laundered, I started to get in touch with the car’s personality. As I eased off the curb, all my favorite memories of the 1970s sporty shitheaps I grew up with—my dad’s a big vintage roadster fan with a small budget—started rushing back. By the time we emerged from that Hunger Games horror show the Bimmer and I were on great terms.
Few car fans talk about their favorites the way BMW acolytes speak of BMW’s E line—the code name for cars BMW designed up until around 2012. The styling, the performance, and the driving characteristics defined BMW for an entire generation. Since the change over to the current BMW F Line, those same enthusiasts (this one included) have bemoaned an era they saw as bloated, sunken-cheeked, fish-faced, fake-vent and generally backward. The 2016 M2 gives us Bimmer-brained fans something worth celebrating, and puts the joy back into a brand that has, for too long, poured out watered-down shots of the “ultimate driving machine. Two years ago BMW introduced us to the 2 series, the two-door coupe that was due to replace the 1 series. The 228i was as good an entry point to the BMW brand as any, and the M235i gave lovers of the brand something to hope for, even if it was an M car more in styling than performance.

Can a tuned RS3 hang with the latest competition? When it comes to smaller luxury performance vehicles it's very clear car companies are getting far more invested and serious. Examples like the new BMW M2 CS, Audi RS3, and Mercedes-AMG A45 S, offer mind-bending performance in smaller packages for the luxury car shopper down on space.

Spoiler alert, a Porsche wins. The Porsche 911 is an iconic sports car that’s spawned some of the most fantastic motoring machines ever.
