I am considering 228i and I believe there are quite a few readers here looking at both models.

I would need the 228i to ---really--- be 240hp. I am transitioning from first an 6spd MT E46 M3 and then 6spd MT M Coupe to what appears to be an 8spd automatic. I want to be able to enter an interstate highway with people going 70+ mph and get up to speed as quickly as possible.

My car before the M3 was a 193hp 1998 328i with automatic. I was unhappy with the engine and transmission.

I am looking forward to the published performance specs for the 2 series later this month.
