Didn't like it? I thought you had plans to drive it?

We did plan to drive it. Interior felt low budget, trunk was smaller than we expected. It was on the showroom floor and would have been a big hassle to get out to drive so we passed, took a new 3 out instead. Much better for what we need.

Holy C**P! A hardly optioned 228xi GC is $40K!! My comparable e46 325i (with a straight 6) was $33k new.

In a couple years BMW will come out and say they won't make any more sport sedans since people don't buy them. What they're missing is that people don't want the BMW sport sedans that they're making because they have lost their attractiveness. Build a proper front engine rear drive 2 series sedan or grand coupe and that'll bring back some of the brand enthusiasts. Just like the M2 did. On the other hand it's probably too late. They need to bring a proper 4 wheel electric in a 2 series sedan form factor.

Just saw a "Fast Fact" in an email from BMWNA:

"The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe won the coveted title of Most Beautiful Car of the Year at the 35th Festival Automobile International in Paris".

What a huge letdown.

This car has an identity crisis! ... Worst looking BMW yet.

Cool little car for sure
I'm test driving one tomorrow for GF, will report back. Her car desires are nothing like mine - AWD, 4 doors, easy to use navigation / tech, safe and modern, warranty with no surprises, must be red. She couldn't care less about driving dynamics, steering feedback, FWD architecture, anything that would be a non-starter for me. Money isn't the main driver here everything else we are looking at is $10k more but the new 3-series is bigger than her F30 and there's not a ton out there around $50k that's all that interesting. It makes zero sense to step up to something like an S5 sportback or 440 GC for a driver like her, complete waste of money.
I mean, isn't paying BmW prices for a mini then a waste as well? Get her a nice mini and save $10k

Shame on BMW for sticking the fake 'M' badge on this.

I also can't unsee the hideous fwd engine placement. Such a snub nose and high hood showing off how high off the ground and how forward the engine is.

I will credit bmw that the Haldex they use is very good and you can't tell it's fwd based. But man it's ugly.

any more video reviews out there?


Curious if anyone is aware of any other video reviews that are worth watching? Way too many with AI voice overs of stock press photos, make sure to give a thumbs down to those shitty youtube videos.

Keep well and please keep sharing any reviews, blogs or posts regarding the M235i Gran Coupe if you see any.
