I'm not convinced by your reasoning. If some cooling down is not needed after engine switch-off (if only for the turbo bearing safety), than why does my Golf R emits a quiet noise (most likely of the...

Strange High Beam Assist behavior

I have 2 cars now with high beam assist - the M235i and the Golf R mk7 - and sadly, the BMW's one cannot even compare to the VW's. Additionally, after some 7,000 km it started behaving even stranger,...

I have a universal cradle version of a CD-slot mount, but am not convinced. Not sure why, but it's not "solid" enough; perhaps the front CD plate is too thin and flexible in the M235i?

The board (not trip) computer which is never reset shows 25 MPG since new (some 5,000 miles on the clock at the moment). I have no regrets - after the short marriage and divorce with the F10, this is...

Strange problem with losing tire pressure

Hello guys - it's been quite some time since I posted in this favorite forum of mine... As some of you may remember, I traded my 528xi F10 for an M235i; in general I'm quite happy with that decision...

wider tires for M235i?

I believe that- especially after modding the N55 to the region of some 380 hp - the tire widths in the stock staggered setup of M345i are too small.

If I wanted to keep the wheels, would 245/35...

How do you like the Eisenmann 4-tail exhaust?

I don't have many opportunities to listen to various aftermarket exhaust notes for the M235i, or compare them with seemingly the obvious choice - the MPE. It stems from the simple fact that the M235i...
