Have a read at our first BMW M235i owner’s review.
A detailed review by a BIMMERPOST member of his M235i test drive.
When you first see the car it depends on which angle you see it from from the front 3/4 is nice. If you look at it from a dead profile it looks a little strange. As if somebody chopped off the back and the front. When I get a chance to post the pictures I think you’ll see what I mean. But from an angle, the car looks quite nice.

In 1975, it was replaced by the 3-series – a worthy successor initially, but a car that has become remarkably large over the years. In fact, the current 3-series is almost as long and tall as the E3 luxury sedan, and it is actually wider.
