Cool Geneva 2014: BMW M235i Coupe European Debut

Here are photos of the Alpine White M235i 2 Series on display at the 2014 Geneva auto show.

No M Performance Parts 2 Series here, but there is a 4 Series with M Performance Parts.

The biggest problem I have with the rear is not the design or bumper, it's how small the tailpipes are. They should be about the size as the one on the E92 335.

Definitely looks more finished with the horizontal fins in the air intakes - anyone confirm that we get them in Canada?

That's because BMW wants to sell you M Performance tips for some extra doe.

It really does look better in person. Some people are not photogenic and this applies to some BMWs.

Yup fully agree, in person it looks a lot better and I have no issues with it. The pictures were disappointing to me at first

I think the wide and short European license plate also helps the rear end. It makes it look wider and it flows better with the tail lights. The short and tall American plate makes the rear look narrower and taller.

Good point…never thought about that! The car definitely looks good in white!
