Being a BMW M model, there are two things expected, looks and performance. Talking about the looks first the car sits really low and has an aggressive stance. Mildly flared wheel arches highlight the car’s wider body while the three door configuration is pleasant in itself. The body graphics are minimal but leave a good impression. The 18” M alloy wheels are complemented with lo-profile tyres and enhancing the appeal of the car are coloured brake calipers visible through the alloys.
