The 2 Series Convertible (F23) is coming at the beginning of 2015 and we’ve got photos of a M235i convertible in nearly fully uncovered form. The F23 convertible features a cloth folding top.
The US market will receive 228i, 228xi and M235i convertible models. Production of demo/dealer models will begin this November and customer cars begin production in January 2015 (per the 2015 model year schedule).

As we recently reported, the car that everyone has been calling the “1 Series GT” has now been fully revealed — as a 225i. Its full official name will be the 225i Active Tourer.
Also as predicted, the production version retains the Concept Active Tourer’s styling. The differences are the smaller kidney grilles, revised fascias and different lights. The shots of the interior reveal the same multi-layered styling seen in other late model BMWs.
The 2 Series Active Tourer will share the newest MINI’s engines and … CONTINUED
Even more photos have been posted of the BMW M235i coupe ahead of its official reveal on Friday (German time).
This time we get a glance at its interior as well as the rear design.
Here are the first photos of the BMW M235i Coupe which is currently making its rounds at dealers across the U.S.
The official reveal for the M235i and 2 Series Coupe will come later this week – October 25th (German time).
Months ago we uncovered much of the M235i by way of a set of very revealing photos (reposted below), but we now show you some more unique looks.
The first image shows the M235i bumper (on the left) compared to the standard 2 Series bumper (on the right). The 2 Series bumper is the same as the one spotted on the standard 2 Series prototype we showed you last week. Both designs look very sporty to us. The image also gives a great top-down look … CONTINUED
As our newest photos show, the 2 Series Coupe (F22) sure has grown up from the current 1 Series Coupe (E82). The 3.1 inch gain in overall length and 1.2 inch longer wheelbase (see dimension/specs comparisons) appears to come mostly in the front, elongating the front end and giving the F22 a sleeker look overall. Adding to this effect is the less bulbous greenhouse which features a more raked window and a rear roofline that has been elongated and joins the trunk on a more … CONTINUED
The 2 Series has been spied again on the road, just shortly before its online reveal.
Stay tuned soon!
The M235i / 2 Series is due soon and while we wait, it’s undergoing some final performance testing on the Nurburgring, where it’s said by BMW to be able to beat the 1M Coupe.
Klaus Froehlich, Senior Vice President Brand and Product Strategies at BMW recently revealed these little tidbits:
The M235i is as close a spiritual successor to the 2002ti that we’ve had. My initial benchmark was that it will be faster than the BMW 1M Coupe around the Nurburgring, which it is.”I have just signed … CONTINUED
First sighting of a white BMW M235i coupe.
Spy photos of the upcoming 2014 BMW 228i coupe in Orion Silver.
The 228i coupe will join the M235i coupe as the first two 2 Series models available in the US. Both models will begin production in November 2013, as a 2014 model year.
The following spy photos of the M235i shows you what to expect underneath the camouflage in terms of the car’s sides and the front end – with a different front bumper design of course.

A BMW 2 series prototype crashed on the German Autobahn yesterday evening. According to the article, the driver lost control of his car at high speed, clipping 50m of the beam barrier on the right hand side of the road and came to a rest after another 150m in the left hand lane. Furthermore, 4 other cars on the other side were hit by debris. Luckily the driver sustained only minor injuries and no one else was hurt.
Here is the M235i coupe, fully uncovered (save for the covering on the back). But, nearly the entire car is revealed here!
Non-fans of the F20 1 Series front design with its in-your-face headlights and blunt nose look will appreciate the much sportier 2 series coupe front end, with significantly sleeker headlights and grilles.
The front air intakes are large and aggressively shaped, with the fins that we spied in the last M235i sighting. As on the prototypes, the wheels are from the M135i, as are the … CONTINUED
We give you the first clear look at the interior of the F22 BMW 2 Series (M235i) coupe. As the 2 Series lineup is based off the current F20/F21 1 Series hatchbacks, it comes as no surprise that the interiors are nearly identical.
As this is the M235i (there will be no regular 235i), we see all the M Sport bits fitted from the M135i hatchback, including alcantara sports seats (with hexagonal pattern and blue contrast stitching), aluminum dash trim and door handles with hexagon texture, … CONTINUED
F22 2 Series coupe (228i) prototype spotted in SoCal. First prototype sighting in the US.
The M235i coupe (315 HP) is already confirmed for the US (see VIN details and spy photos). Production will begin in November 2013 in the Leipzig plant, for an 8 month first-model-year production run (until June 2014). There will be no 235i model in the US or elsewhere, as the M235i will take its place in the lineup.
The M235i will be joined by the 228i coupe in the US. The 228i … CONTINUED
We bring you the first live look and listen at the BMW 2 Series Coupe (F22) and Convertible (F23), from cold climate testing in Sweden. Seen and heard in our video are various models, including not limited, to the M235i and 228i models. It’s likely that at least some of the cars here are AWD xDrive models testing performance in the snow.
The M235i coupe (315 HP) is already confirmed for the US (see VIN details and spy photos). Production will begin in November 2013, … CONTINUED
We’ve previously posted photos of the 2 Series coupe (F22) and convertible (F23) testing, but we’ve not spotted them testing together, giving us a great look at how the two models compare visually.
The F22 coupe seen here is a M235i model judging by the blue M Sport brakes and split dual black exhaust tips (also seen on the M135i upon which the M235i is based).
