I currently own both the E86 M coupe and the E46 M3 and I would not trade either of them for any of the current BMW models. They are so much more connected to the driving experience that one seeks. Yes, I test drove the M2 when it came out and getting into that car from the Coupe was a bit of a let down. It's a fine auto but it seems to be missing a bit of the BMW DNA that I look for.

Yeah, I think the choice is really between your 1M, if going more modern, or the E30 M3. As cool as some of the Z cars are, thatís always been the domain of Porsche to me, so I canít really think of a Z model that I wouldnít choose a Porsche over, outside of maybe a Z8. BMWís strength was always in small, practical coupes/sedans that compete in performance with sportier cars, and the 1M is really the only BMW M to carry on that tradition since the E30. The M2 is the closest thing there is currently, but it still feels big and dead compared to an E82 (Iíve not driven the Competition version, yet, though.)

Man, that induction noise from the M3 CSL never gets old...

Have driven the M2C didn't care for it really. M2C is no real improvement over the M2 IMO. More power is not what that car needed; more agility and spirit is what it needed and the M2C just felt dull to me, personally. Not sure I understand the hype at all.

I honestly don't think BMW will be able to get back to an agile small coupe again...and yeah I agree with you that the essence of BMW is in the small 2 door coupe that can do it all! We haven't really seen that since the E8X 1-series IMO.
