The F32 4 Series with M Performance Parts has been spotted again, but this time featuring a never before seen part – exhaust system and tips from the M4 Concept.
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
In this video review Autoexpress tests the BMW M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG – with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it’s going to be a stern rival for the BMW.
The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we’ve got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Autoexpress took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds.

Review by a BIMMERPOST member comparing his M135i hatchback to the A45 AMG hatchback following a test drive.
BMW has released an M Performance Power Kit for the F20 125i with N20B20 engine.
It increases the factory 218 hp / 310 Nm to 238 hp / 350 Nm and of course retains the factory warranty.
This extra power drops the 0-100 km/h (0-62mph) acceleration from 6.4 to 5.9 seconds, with a top speed of 250 km/h.
It’s price at 899-999 euro /
An interactive 3D modeler of the M235i Coupe is now available at Humster3D. This digitally modeled version is based off the revealing spy photos of the M235i we posted last month.
Generally speaking, it does a decent job at previewing the M235i, although it does have to make some predictions as to the rear view and tail lights, which remain partially covered in the spy photos. Its surfacing is also too flat in some areas, as the actual M235i’s hood and front fascia have more shape … CONTINUED
