close to the beginning you can hear how amazing the M235i? sounds when it's spooling up. this makes me anxious to hear how it will sound decatted with no resonators. exhaust manufactures need to jump on the 2series asap!

Such a tease for the sound I wish it was longer where we heard a bit more. I think it would sound really good with even just test pipes.

I would just go as far as removing the resonators first, I can't stand the smell after decat so just a Eissenman race rear section should do it

It's funny how BMW always love to show off their test in snow or cold conditions. I have noticed they have BMW courses of how to handle one properly in the snow. I would love to see what kind of stability the 2 series has in these conditions. Shouldn't be any different from the 1 series.

Have you guys seen the pictures of the crash that a 2 series had on the autobahn in germany. That thing stayed in one piece pretty good. I mean it did lose its wheels and whol e front but the cabin looks safe and sound. The impact glass barrier is tough on those highways.

Judging from the aftermath. It looked like a pretty good crash. The driver must have been really hitting the throttle. Luckily the the driver went away unscathed from the sounds of it.

the speeds on the autobahn are like 160+mph. He is lucky that the car is so well built.

Has there been any news updates on what happened or an explanation of what went on and led to the accident?
