We’ve given you live action looks of the M235i and 228i during winter testing, now have a look at the M235i coupe undergoing testing at the Nurburgring this week.

The M235i mule is seen in Estoril Blue II and shares its wheels, M Sport brakes, and double black exhaust pipes with the M135i hatchback. A trunk spoiler lip can also be seen clearly.

M235i and 228i coupe production begins in November. There will be no 235i model in the US or elsewhere, as the M235i will take … 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.

Interior

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

OK, it’s not truly being hooned, but a M235i coupe prototype is seen doing doughnut patterns in an empty lot as part of its testing. As a result, we get a great live look at all the various angles of the car – a bit like the car being on a rotating auto show display. We also get a good listen at its exhaust and engine sounds.

There is also a brief look at the F22 2 Series Coupe against the F30 3 Series Sedan, for … 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.

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).

Thus far, the spied camouflaged 2 Series Coupe and Convertible prototypes remain under heavy front camouflage, obscuring the front fascia design.

But BMW insider Scott26 has shared with us this sketch of what to roughly expect from the 2 Series. As one can see, the smaller (compared to F20) headlights will join the kidney grilles as we’ve expected. The front end’s general look is certainly sportier and more angular based on this sketch.

Here is the 2 Series Coupe (F22) prototype and the closest look yet at BMW’s upcoming compact sports coupe. This may be the 228i model, which joins the 235i and M235i as prototypes we’ve now spied. See the full 2 Series spy photo archive.

The closeups here give the best look yet at the 2 Series headlights, which are indeed much smaller and sleeker than the headlights of the F20/F21 1 Series hatchback (with which the 2 Series lineup shares a platform). While the inside corners … CONTINUED
