2014 BMW M235i: More Than Just The Bargain M?

If performance is what you want in the M235i and need some convincing of how good it is, look no further, Motor Trend proved it at the track!


Quote:
On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the new BMW M235i, the smallest and least expensive performance car in the automaker's lineup. It has the right formula: rear-wheel drive and a 320-horse turbo straight six. The problem is that the M division, despite what the badges say, didn't develop it. So is the M235i a poser or the real deal? Through instrumented testing, a drive on the winding road, and a hot lap with Randy Pobst at Streets of Willow, we find out.

I think the most important specifications can't even be quantified. As the rest of BMW becomes ponderous and irrelevant IMO the 2 series bumbles along with the soul of a company long since ignored. It's the purest BMW left and you just can't but a metric on the giddy grin you get even from right turns out of Wal Mart parking lots
