Picked up my fully loaded BSM M235i xDrive Gran Coupé

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I ordered the car back in early December but got my order confirmation in early January.. The car went into production February 28th and it was finished March 13th, picked it up earlier this week on April 14th. Overall the process could've been quite a lot faster had the order been confirmed earlier but I am happy they got the car manufactured and delivered before the COVID-19 shutdowns really started hindering deliveries.

According to my knowledge this is the first of its kind (customer car) in Finland, guess on Bimmerpost too(?). Optioned out with everything available, went for the adaptive suspension, hence the 18" wheels.

I was hesitant ordering this back in December since the press images weren't that great, in some of the photos it didn't look too sharp but then again in some pictures I really liked the look, especially those promo pictures of the black M-Performance model. So I ended up ordering the car and chose black sapphire metallic. When I first saw one in flesh at the dealer in late January I was really happy with my choice and felt a little relieved since there really were not that many photos or videos available at the time, even less so with the black color. My least favorite angle is the side profile but I wouldn't say it's bad. Contrary to many I actually think the best part of this car is the rear, maybe the color does it..

The car is a little grimy in some of the pictures because of course the weather had to suck balls when I picked it up.

Hello,

The car looks great. I ordered the same interior. Can you tell me what tires it came with?

Thanks!

Congratulations

Love the car and specs you chose. I am hoping mine will arrive in next 2-3 weeks with similar specs but with Storm bay exterior.

How are you liking the driving experience?

This build is lovely. I understand beauty's in the eye of the beholder, but can't fathom who would have fault with this thing in BSM. Enjoy!

Hopefully you get your car soon, curious about the Storm Bay grey color. Think it will be very similar in style to my car despite the color being quite a lot lighter. Which interior color did you choose along with the grey exterior?

So far I am liking the driving experience a lot. I'm still in the running in phase so I haven't gone crazy or anything, but the car feels really solid and tied to the road. They've really managed to hide the front-wheel bias quite well here. I do prefer its ride over that of a loaner G20 330e which I had for some weeks last year. Still have some 500km more to go on the running in before I will start exploring the car on its limits. It's a nimble, fun little car which is crucial in this segment.

OP congratulations.

Over the weekend saw a new 228i X-Drive in dark grey metallic and the car looks much better in person than it does in photos.

Also this design favors dark paints (Black, Grey) much better than light colors and white.

Enjoy!

Storm Bay is a great color! There is a lot going on with the paint depending on how you're looking at it.

Great looking car. I had a chance to drive one and was very impressed with the power, fit and finish. Don't let the snotty ones tell you otherwise.
