Video: M235i Bombing the ‘Ring

When BMW introduced the 1 Series Coupe it was bringing to market a smaller car than the ever growing 3 Series. It promised more performance, lighter weight and more fun. In many ways it delivered but it suffered on the track and when pushed near the limits. The M tweaked 235i coupe is said to be a quantum leap in terms of dynamics from the 135i according to well placed sources. From this video we would have to agree that it appears to be more hunkered down and sorted than its predecessor. Try to ignore the exhaust- it’s no where near final. Expect the new 2 series to bow at the Detroit auto show and the M235i being the only six cylinder offered.

    Looks like a more or less standard well sorted BMW suspension. Had to watch with the sound off as the motor/exhaust sound was pathetic and very happy to hear its not finial production form on the exhaust.

    The 2 series is shaping up to be a very attractive car. The headlights feel so much better sorted compared to the 1M and immediately makes the 1M feel dated IMHO.
