F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

Mein Auto: 17 M240i convertible
receiver hitch for M240i

I will be taking delivery of an ordered 2017 M240i convertible in a couple of weeks. I am looking for a receiver hitch so that I can carry my bike without taking a chance on scratching the paint as could happen when using a trunk mounted bike rack. I called my BMW dealer and UHaul today, but neither have a receiver hitch for my car. Anyone know where I can get one?

The BMW enthusiasts ehagerty installed a Curt hitch on his M235i. I would guess this will fit on an M240i as well.

Ok folks, here it is. The Curt 11367 3/4 series hitch installed on the M235. I have accomplished this even retaining the underside heat shield. These pics are with the MPE and M diffuser.

One casualty suffered, the front r/h cover tab broke when I pulled on the cover. The l/h popped right out, the r/h just broke off.

If that fails, according to BMW you can get a roof rack for the m240 for your bike.

Not for a convertible he can't. I too got a Curtis hitch installed (professionally, not by myself) and a lightweight aluminum Thule bike rack. Works well.

What about replacing the single muffler exhaust of a 218i sport coupe 15' with a new handmade double exhaust muffler??
