Henna is full on orange in person. Like the General Lee orange from Dukes of Hazzard.

I may consider TR for first go around. Or maybe BG.

I was going to say they didn't really capture Henna properly. It's a beautiful color, but definitely Orange in person. Those photos don't really do it.

I definitely see it. The M2's side view is like a modern-day E30 M3.

The boxy fender flares are almost the same.

E30 M3 is a timeless classic.

Definitely polar opposites of the spectrum here from BMW.

Love the low belt line on the E30. So much more visibility.

The E30 M3 was a total flop in North America. People were upset because it had a four-cylinder. Way too expensive, too. The 325is looked like the much cooler car.

So let's wait 30-40 years before even discuss the timelessness of G87.

Now just imagine if BMW decided to reproduce the E30 M3 body shape but with say a B58 engine, modern interior and suspension. It would be absolute insanity.

For me, the jury is still out on the G87 body shape. It just looks.. unfinished - too many rough edges.

Dude 30-40 year (lol) those kids will not even be able to get gas or know what oil was hahah

BTW lets stop this E30 M3 compare. The E30 M3 was a homologated race car that we where lucky to get. BMW using it more for marketing at this point.
