Keep my F80, get an F87, get a G80, or wait for the G87?

I’m currently deciding between keeping my F80, buying an F87 M2cs or jumping on the bandwagon with the G80. Since it’s at least a three year commitment, I want to make the right choice.

I enjoy my F80 in the canyons, but would I get similar or better enjoyment out of the G80? I haven’t done track but see it in my immediate future. Is the smaller outgoing M2 (either F87 or G87) going to be the car that best fits my needs?

If you want an E46 M3, there is the M2.

If you want a Mini-M5, there is the G80.

I can't see it any other way.

I'll never buy another first year BMW again. It took BMW 4 years from launch to finally get the F8X right with the CS. I would rather have an M2CS to tide me over until the G8X CS comes out, or at least wait until the G8X LCI. Not for the lights and trim upgrades, but for the chassis calibration updates.

As a F87 M2C owner, I can say it is a great car. Like said above, very E46-like. Pretty nimble and relatively basic but truly a joy to drive on B roads and especially the track. Had mine for about coming up on 2 years and am still in love with it. For me, that is saying a lot! I typically get the itch or actually swap cars every 2.
