We have added the full technical data and specs for the U.S. 2 series coupe models – 228i and M235i.
Last time we saw the X4 M Sport, it was heavily camouflaged, but it has now revealed much of itself as we approach the online debut of the X4 in mid-March and its auto show debut at the New York International Auto Show in April.
Like the X3 M Sport, with which it shares a platform, the X4 M Sport Package will feature cosmetic enhancements such as the M Sport aerodynamic kit, M Sport wheels and shadowline exterior trim, as well as an M Sport steering wheel and interior.
The aerodynamic kit includes the M Sport front bumper, rear bumper, sideskirts and body color matched fenders, which can be seen on this prototype. This prototype also features the optional adaptive LED headlights.

The U.S. pricing for european delivery of the BMW M235i and 228i coupes have been announced at $40,135 and $29,905, respectively.
A detailed review by a BIMMERPOST member of his M235i test drive.

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.
