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 newest catalog of M Performance Parts for the M5 and M6 has officially been announced and released.
In-depth expertise, a keen awareness of detail and meticulous fine-tuning work make all the difference on the racetrack – and now enable BMW factory driver Martin Tomczyk to experience that special racing feel on the road as well. At the German Touring Car Masters (DTM), Tomczyk drives the BMW M Performance Accessories M3 DTM, but is now out and about off the racetrack in a BMW M6 Gran Coupe.
