Video: M235i Bombing the ‘Ring

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.

Spied! Undisguised BMW M235i

Photo shoots happen regularly in the auto industry- as a spy photographer if you stalk your prey to one of these shoots you will make a bunch of money and snap an undisguised car well before launch. Thanks to <a href=\"http://www.autoblog.com/photos/bmw-2-series-coupe-spy-shots/#photo-5884970/\">Autoblog</a> we now have a clear view of BMW\'s replacement for the current 135i, the M235i.

M235i Production Details and Timeline

The 2 Series is coming. But perhaps more importantly for BF readers the M235i right behind it. According to sources August of 2013 will mark the start of production for the F22 2 Series rear wheel drive coupe. The successor to the 1 Series, the 2 series will see a slight increase in size and a slight decrease in weight. It will also see the introduction of a M Performance Line version of the small BMW coupe to be called the M235i. And thanks to some digging similar to what we did with the 4 Series we\'ve uncovered some data (and dates) around the new M235i.
