Beautifully filmed indeed. Those ultra wide roundabouts sure look fun

Not sure I buy that the M235i would win a drag race against a M5 though.

Wow!!! Incredible vid. Drift race against an M5! Surely the 235 has had the LSD fitted?

Love the video! Love that line... "the M235i will take a role of exclusive prostitute"!


Can't wait for Scott26 to spin that one!

From Edmunds.com: "In Edmunds testing, a manual-shift M5 without the Competition package hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds."

This is roughly the time MotorTrend got with an M235i A/T, so it is possible.

Regardless, this little car is close at about 1/2 the price and 200 less hp. Simply stunning!

One of my favorite videos as well. And the quotes are just something else...

BMW M235i is a drug...and drugs were never cheap.

Everybody would love to sleep with her but nobody will marry her.

Jeremy wasnt too fond of the m135i, but that was mainly because he hydroplaned off the track.
I'd still like to hear his opinion on the m235i.

I call BS. Sure, they may be close in 0-60 times, but beyond that the M5 is going to eat it's lunch. I drive an E60 M5 and I still beat any N55 or N54 (unless it is super modded.) Furthermore, I live in Colorado at 6,500ft altitude, so I am down about 20% of my horsepower due to the altitude. (I am not bashing the M235i, awesome car, just the video report.) I previously owned a 135i that out handled my M5. But as they say, once you go ///M, you will never go back!

The quoted statement is further proof not to buy manuals, you lose to little cars with less horsepower. And before you flame me, my SMG M5 is the first non-manual I have owned in 27 years of driving and 13 different cars...

Other than that, the filmography was awesome, right up there with Top Gear UK!

Nice video!
Since I could not understand the language, I interpreted the intro as follows:
BMW made a minivan...
The world is ending...
There is no hope...
But wait.....M235i
We are saved...

Language

Wow I got upset when I read it wasn't in English but then surprised when I found out I understood it since I speak Slovak (the video is in Slovak for those wondering)
