The F22 BMW 2 Series in Motion - Handling and Launch Control highlighted
We have three fresh videos of the 2 Series in action. A typical high speed, high action, fast cutting film to get you excited about the 2 series. Then we get a demonstration of just how good the M235i handling is. Finally in a somewhat surprising video BMW shows us how to use the launch control on the M235i. BMW is making an big and obvious push to position this as their edgy sports car. Does it work for you?
