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.

M235i order placed.

I placed an order last week. Estoril Blue, Sansatec black with Tech package. $43.5K out the door. I love foreign military sales and the 1 percent APR from Navy Federal Credit Union. I was told that I can expect a late March or early delivery date here in Bahrain.

Glad to be here, proud to serve!

The BMW US site finally got the 2 Series configurator up and SensaTec is not an option. That resolved one of my questions.

Thanks for serving and enjoy the heck out of the M235i. It's a nice looking BMW!

I was told by my SA that production is not until April so I added the premium package. I think terra dakota interior will look ok with estoril blue exterior.

Try configuring with Dakota Oyster leather. I think it look really good with EB II. That's the problem with production starting in April; there's too much time!

I had a LeMans over Oyster E90 335 and I loved that combo. I suspect that it would be similarly amazing with EB2.

I read online that you can add bmw m accessories like exhaust, lowered suspension, carbon fiber, etc. However, I don't see it on the bmw site. Anyone have any information on this?

I just asked my SA to check if I can get some performance parts installed at the factory since my production date got move back. It will probably cost 3 times as much if I go with BMW Middle East.

I was told by my SA yesterday that performance parts installation is not available here in Bahrain through foreign military sales. I'm going to the BMW Bahrain dealership today to check if they have one here. Not sure but I think people here go to Dubai to get performance parts.

With Ramadan around the corner, I am bit worried... very worried I should say. During Ramadan, you can't get anything from the Port.
