The biggest difference I notice between the E92 and F22 how much more composed the overall ride and feel is. Bear in mind, my E92 had x-drive, was auto, and had the 28i engine-- namely the slowest...

The EPS in the M235i is the best I have experienced in the BMW/Audi/Merc lineup at the $50,000ish range. I have tested an F30 with and without DHP, a 228i and a 428i without DHP. For Audi, I have...

The Jalopnik article, compares summer tires to winter tires . I'm nearly certain C&D is making the same comparison. As a result, the conclusions are mostly irrelevant because the xdrive M235i comes...

The best thing to do is test-drive the competition. I drove an S3 and it makes a compelling argument: four-doors, quite a bit of speed, and several thousand dollars cheaper and the BMW.

New M235i Owner and a Driving Mode Question

Hi all,

I am very much enjoying my 2015 M235i Xdrive. I traded a '13 E92 (328i) and the difference in power between the two is monumental. Further, the F22 is a seriously composed performer...

You have to remember what you purchased with the PE-- a tasteful additional rumble. If you wanted a serious fart-can rattle that will scare stray cats, you chose the wrong accessory.

I own the PE on a 328 coupe and my old college roommate has the IS.

Startup is quieter on the "is", but at higher revs, the volume is reasonably comparable. The PE has a deeper tone.
