Not really a surprise. RT wrote an article 2 years ago whingeing about the M235i not really being a true M car, and deriding all the M badges. Changing their tune would be a sign of weakness.

I'm not real sure why so many people have problems drilling their front bumper. It's actually the way BMW intended to have front tags mounted.

I have an M235i that I routinely use for 280 mile trips between our 2 houses. My only complaint is that I have to stop for gas once.

Previous bimmers are a 2005 325, 2008 328, 2011 123D. The...

I went from a 2011 123D with M-sport/sport seats to a 2014 M235i. My 123D had lumbar support, and for some reason my M235i does not. It has those stupid side-bolster supports instead. I had...

Nothing like a rebadged Miata to get the performance and looks of... a Miata.

Now that BMW has sacked Chris Bangle, maybe he could redesign a new Coupe?

The M-Sport package on the 1-series is really worth it.

The 135 is worth it over the 128, but if you can't afford it, the 128 is fine. (My wife drives a 328, and it's more than enough power.)

I had a 2010 123D coupe, and it was a lovely car. I wish I could have brought it back to the US with me. It was also M-Sport. I have an M235i now, and in many ways it was a lateral shift. ...

Well, to be fair, in the same time period Fiat has discontinued the 126 and bought Ferrari, so the change there was pretty dramatic as well.

In the 90s my spousal unit had a Fiat Coupe, which was...

Very rarely. When I want to accelerate briskly I usually depress about 80%. M235i auto.

My alpine white 123D used to get tar speckles all the time. I never bothered doing anything about them. I'm a bad person.

If limited to those choices I'd go Alpine white Coral red.

I used to have a 123d that was Alpine white/black and it was a great combo. My M235i is EB/black which is also great. I'm not a big fan...

I went pretty basic with my M235i. Estoril, heated seats and black leather, auto tranny. One year later, I'd do it again. Actually, I might opt for boring old alpine white instead. I've probably...

The recall letters are supposed to go out starting April 30.

Your dealer might know whether your pump is affected.

There's no real reason to play coy with a dealer. There are lots of BMW ED sales, it's a common practice.

I wouldn't start off negotiating price. Just let the dealer know...
