H&R 2014 BMW 228i M Sport Coupe

Coolest Coupe!

The new BMW 2 Series (F22) is the coolest coupe around; in fact it is two times cooler than any other. The H&R 2014 BMW 228i M Sport is perfect showcase for this fun-size sports coupe.

Our project began with a call to Pat Womack at Laurel BMW of Westmont, IL to order up a Glacier Silver Metallic coupe – because what color is cooler?

Upon arrival in Bellingham, WA, the master tuners at H&R Special Springs went to work. H&R Sport Springs were installed lowering the chassis 1.0” front and .80” rear for both an enhanced look and a performance feel.

Lightweight 19’’ O.Z. Leggera HLT wheels and Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires were supplied courtesy of the Tire Rack. The Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, size 235/35R19 front and 245/35R19 rear, fill the BMW wheel wells flawlessly.

Inside, the interior features WeatherTech® FloorLiner™ DigitalFit®, accurately and completely lining the interior carpet giving “absolute interior protection™!” Digital laser measurements of the interior surfaces offer a consistently perfect fit. They look great and keep the 228i interior carpet looking brand new. A BMW M Performance Carbon Fiber Brake Handle with Alcantara Boot adds to the M Sport theme.

Quick comment...I'm kind of surprised at their tire size choices. They really should have gone with a 225/35 on the front, it would have been within 3mm of the diameter of the stock tire. The 235/35 is 10mm bigger in diameter.

Rear is even worse, the new tire 26mm (1") bigger than the old tire, a 245/30 would have kept the same overall diameter.

Wonder why they went with that setup?

Yes, that looks perfect, both in looks and as a daily driver. Wonder how the ride quality compares to stock.

Holy shit that looks great. The 228i M-Sport is a stellar value pound-for-pound. Seeing the car in silver really makes me miss my 135i.

The stock tires on the 2ers always seemed too small to me.. this actually fills up nice. With the speedo typically reading 10% higher than the real speed, it will properly reduce that to 0%.

Now.. if you asked me.. they should have gone with a square setup. Anything with less than 300HP does not need a stagger. Having rotatable tires/wheels is a bliss.

That looks great! Also the 228i isn't much slower than the 235i, not a major loss.

The M235i has more HP, sure, but the 228i is still the same platform. Some prefer the reduced weight and better balance. Have a look under the hood of a 228i the next time you're at the dealer. The engine damn near fits behind the strut towers. It's remarkable. This makes a noticeable difference in turn-in. I drove a 228i back to back with the M235i. I was always skeptical of the whole "N20 means less weight out front" arguments that occurred here on Bimmerpost, until I went and tried it for myself.

IMO, it all comes down to your priorities. I'd still find it hard to be without the extra go-power and sound of the N55, but I can see why someone would opt for the 228i in this trim.

This car is arguably the most "Pure" BMW currently being produced.

Order one with M sport and M brakes
Remove the slush box and add a proper manual trans
Add a LSD to the rear axle
Keep out all the "electronics"

Bam!!! you have a modern E-30/E46 coupe.

I wish i was in the position to place an order for one.
Especially when the N20 engine is being replaced with a cheaper version
