From E39 to F90, the length of the car grew a total of 3.94%. During the same timespan, the growth from E46 to G80 has been 6.72%.

70% more growth in length in the 3er compared to the 5er.

Very interesting.

The badge is like a birth certificate.

Regardless of the badge, it's all about the DNA and legitimate expectations about the bloodline.

It is insane how big the cars have become. Nice for family outings. But the bigger the car the more boring it is to drive in cornering.

Two pertinent Colin Chapman quotes:
  • "Simplify, then add lightness."
  • "Adding power makes you faster on the straights. Subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere."

So based on this can we assume the G87 M2 dimensions should fall in between the E46 M3 and E92 M3 which will be perfect!
