Yes, Mr. Sage. The 228i is much more fun to drive than the 328i. Took me 1503 miles to find that out before the car finally came into its own. Some nits, but the terrific acceleration and fine...

It's true though. Eco Pro mode has no place on an M235i.

The only time my 228i isn't in Sport mode is when it's guarding my garage.

I leased a 2013 VW GTI after driving 4 BMW's (three 3 Series sedans and a 545i).

The GTI was a fun car, but the wheel spin when accelerating from rest, got old pretty fast.

Also, disliked the...

I'm kinda glad I don't have to make that decision. The 228i coupe is spoiling me; so smooth, no wind noise; agile and powerful. 26-28 mpg. What's not to like?

Even though I like the GTI as a fun...

The 228i is plenty fast enough and has almost gotten me in trouble a few times with the state troopers.

I've never driven the M235i. I would probably burn up from the friction.

Refreshingly intelligent post.

My heart skips a beat whenever I see a 2015 GTI. I had a 2013 GTI and it was a lot of fun.

Still waiting to see another 2 Series in addition to mine.

The doors are a bit too heavy. When I open them, they easily swing right back, gaining momentum and can do some damage if one isn't alert.

I'm keeping mine. As a matter of fact I put extra polish on the "228i".

I find no discernible difference between the suspension setting in comfort mode and sport mode. They are both equally too soft.

The 228i with track handling package is the best handling car I've ever had. This after 4 other BMW's (three 3 Series and a 545i) and a 2007 Porsche 911.

Worth every penny of the $39,000 I spent....

I notice absolutely no difference between the firmness of the suspension in comfort vs sport mode. Both seem "light".

I've been waiting for this. Finally! After almost 1300 miles, the car has shed its baby shoes and come alive! This 228i coupe is one smooth, potent ride!

Wish the sport mode could be "memorized"....

What do I regret?

I will never, ever again buy a car whose door handle protrudes so much. Whenever I make a left turn, my left leg bangs against it.

The turbo lag is noticeable when accelerating from rest. Probably should have stepped up to the M235i. Spending this kind of cash, why not a few thou more? :D

Well that's great for those who order a 2016, but for me and the 2015, I had to order either the Sport or M Sport package to get the sport seats. Ridiculous.:thumbdwn:
