The 228i coupe with sport or M sport line and track handling package drives as good, IMO as a Porsche Cayman, but with more trunk space.

Ha! Ha! Yeah. I notice on the "My BMW" page, the "track my BMW" quickly changed to "My BMW Loan".

I have arrived!!! :D:D

By the way, 8 weeks is incredibly fast-not the average, that's for sure!

Sure, if you don't mind a 3 month wait. I ordered mine on February 27th and just got the car this past Wednesday on May 20th.

I have everything on my 228i coupe. The only thing not up to par for the car is that damn start/stop function. Thankfully, one push of a button and it's sayonara.

I finally got my 228i coupe last Wednesday. The auto start/stop is a real PITA and I may disable it. Worth 2 mpg less just to get a smooth start.

Also, I'm struck by how nice and quiet the car is. I had a 2013 GTI for three years and the rattles and wind noise were a real turnoff.

Maybe I should just keep my mouth shut! :D

The thing is I wanted the Sport Line and Track Handling Package.

Go find a 228i Coupe equipped that way on a dealer's lot.

As a matter of fact, it's hard to find ANY 228i's at a BMW dealer.

Finally!!!

Just got my 2015 228i Coupe yesterday. I ordered on February 27th. Almost 3 months of "hard time".

Except for the fact that I could use an inch or two more legroom (6'2"), everything's fine!

That's why I ordered mine. Ridiculous what they have on the lots. Should have it next week. But I did wait a long, long time.

Yes. The ZF 8 speed auto is good, but so is the DSG in the GTI-the same dual clutch transmission in Ferraris.
