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.
