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.

There will always be naysayers..

I have been observing BMW new-model launches up-close since 1987.

All I can say about the all-new 2 Gran Coupe? Two words: HOME RUN!!!

No chance of putting a straight six
sideways into that engine bay, and
no chance of BMW designing
a V-6 to squeeze in there.

I seriously doubt it...

The trend downward in terms of displacement in the service of enhancing efficiency shall continue..

I’m sorry and no offense to anyone but it looks like a Corolla. Or that genre of car.

Whenever a new model comes out there are always people who complain about the appearance. This is because speaking as a perception psychologist you are viewing a "novel stimulus". After looking at it for a while, habituation occurs. Soon is takes on positive attributes, and the older outgoing models look dated...

I have observed this cycle repeat every 7 years for the past 33.



People (e21 owners) complained about e30. E30 owners complained about e36. E36 owners complained about E46. And so on. And so on.

Hi Jon, wouldn’t that be a 6 cylinder since it’s a M235ix? When I went online to “build” the 2GC, it gave the 228iGC as the only choice. Good to see you posting here by the way, looks like things are doing well and glad you’re back! I’ll have to drop by and say hi when we're up your way.

No, for the GC M235i or ix, it's a higher
powered 4 cylinder transverse mounted turbo.

At my workplace, GC means gonococcus.

Hey Doc, yes, I was thrown by the nomenclature myself (assumed M235ix was a 6-cyl to be congruent with the previous M235i)... Very confusing...

So great to see you posting too! I am doing so much better now with my titanium hip! Sigh. I only wish I would have done it 15 years sooner, but nobody knew, the MRI was nebulous..

PLEASE do stop by when you are on your way North. I would love to see you!
