If there is only going to be an M235 in the states for the first model year, I would think it would have shadow line instead of the aluminum trim. Therefore 228i?

Did you see the link to VIN information in the first post?

It lists both 228i xDrive and M235i xDrive.
Cool. Thanks. No I did not look at it.

I can see on proportions alone, I would totally get this car! I wish it were available now, because I need a new car now. I guess, I'll get a 335 for the interim

Absolutely no way this is a 4er; of the little front end you can see, there is zero F30 resemblance whatsoever. Definitely a 228i.

Because they said there's no 235, M235 will surely have the dual exhaust one on each side like the M135

^^^^ There are no plans for a 2 GC... Car above is also far to short & thin... Nice idea though... It would be pricey, like the 640ci... Im sorry but $80k for a 640 is about 25k excessive. Good pics.. Since SOOO many people don't read everything in the first post, I'll def agree its a base model mostly on the wheels and exhaust. It's either the I8 or I10 in SoCa too, east bound into the mtn/desert areas... This car is nearly the same width as a 1... And maybe a little longer/taller by an inch, so a possibility it's a 2 or a new 128.... As we don't yet use the turbo 4 in the 1 yet, only the 328 as it. It could even be a 120, more appropriate to how BMW used (prior to 2003) name their vehicles: first number is body style, & last two numbers was the engine in litre displacement.

Also sad that bmw's are mostly "computer controlled" these days, def not the ultimate Driving machine anymore for at least a good 4 years now... I've been drive bmw's for 29 yrs!!!! Even the handling of these cars is gone... Everything else beats the daylights out of BMW in road tests of handling. Looks like I'm staying old school to the "ultimate driving machine" philosophy and looking to buy a pre-2005 BMW that are actually FUN to drive and less than 15% of today's computer nannys to ruin it.

Audi is running away with the awards and sales volume... Plus Audi is focused on building quality, not quantity.

No. There is a 2er Gran Coupe coming, I seen it in Munich about two weeks ago it is a four door 2er but has a slightly lengthened wheelbase (rear legroom will not be that great due to RWD drivetrain) the roofline is elongated but more rounder it is in essence a baby Gran Coupe. It's coming because BMW understand the need for this car and the potential it can have against its newest FWD competitors. Their will be a 1er Sedan aswell as a MINI sedan which I will cover soon but these are based on the UKL matrix for FWD cars.

What might the 228i be starting at price wise? Does anyone have any guesses on that?

I thought that the 228i would be also coming with the M235i, because it said both were starting production in November.

That's correct. Both 228i and M235i will be available in the US in the first model year. Both begin production in November.

, thanks for confirmation on that Jason. It will be interesting if the M-sport pack for the 228i will look like the M235i or will it be toned down...
