2 Series

I'm new to this forum since I just ordered my M235i, but I see no discussion about the 2 series anywhere. Am I just looking in the wrong sections?

Estoril blue. I only spec'd the automatic and Premium package. Yes, I opted for the auto "flappy paddles", because I live in Vancouver and am also a realist who also enjoys the drive. It's weird, there are tons of Bimmers here but very few red or blue ones. The Estoril blue is one of the rarer choices but looks so cool.

Nice choice on the colour. These days auto's are so good that I would be tempted as well.

Nice choice!

I'm a bit anti-turbo, but since that now involves excluding the entire BMW lineup, I'd have to say the M235i is probably the best enthusiast car BMW now makes.

It really doesn't look it, but is almost exactly the same size as the E46 cars-- or, just about perfect.

Yes, even though it is not an M car, it does compare awfully closely to the E46 on paper.

Just saw it at the dealership yesterday. It looks like a smaller m4. I'd be tempted to buy one as my first"new" car.

I just heard from the dealer that my car is now in production, which means it should be parked outside by early July. It was originally slotted for a July production start. Now my excitement level has gone way up. I warned him that I'll have his nards if he's mistaken on the dates.

Congrads,

There is no discussion on the 2 series because its a newer car and it costs 45k + and this forum is based on people driving 20 year old cars.

You need to find yourself a dedicated forum that you can relate to
