so there is no 228i?? that doesn't make sense to me - i'm sure a lot of people would love to have the higher output n20 in this smaller package.....

New Corolla? I'm sure it will make money but it appears to be "just another coupe".

Side view looks good but without the headlights connecting to the grill I think it already looks a little dated.

That's like comparing a 3 series to a Camry.

The 2 Series looks very attractive in the color Moonlight Silver Silver, to me personally
I really like.
Former Cashmere Silver also was tasteful.
My God is crazy so many options there is so much to choose from. !
Estoril Blue, Deep Sea Blue , Melbourne Red, Valencia Orange, wow!!!

I'm guessing leasing the 220i would be in the range of $289 or $299 ... That would make a nice commuter car

I like it - all of BMWs new / upcoming releases I find totally 'meh', apart from this and the i-cars. Dimensions and weights look good, and I'm stoked that the headlights don't join the grille, because that looks like ass. I'm probably one of about a dozen people worldwide who would prefer to order a 235i with no ///M's on it...

Will I buy it? Probably not. Holding out for the 2GC. Am literally praying for 4 frameless doors and a 235iGC without ///Marketing tinsel. I'd take the Sport seats, suspension and the slip-diff. Please BMW...make it so. Or almost so!

But it makes 3er/4er drivers feel good to make fun of the smaller, lighter, sportier car. Get used to it.

Quite nice.

No bimmerang on this one, wonder what the criteria is, size of side panel? I thought it was a new aero feature coming across the range. 3GT, X5, 4 (I've probably missed some recent releases out that don't have it 5LCI eg).

I think it mostly has to do with product design. The 2 series is based off of the 1 series hatchback, which does not feature the design. More money would have to be put in to calibrate the bimmerang and appropriate aero.

Also, remember this is a 2 series. It would not make logical sense that the 2 series has extra features that the 3 series does not, since the cars are "suppose" to get better as you travel up the product line.

For this reason, since the F30 3er does not get bimmerang, or LED headlights, I would not expect them on the 2er, even if it is coming out after it. (which is a shame since I want LED headlights!)

Not that there's a problem or anything....so BMW is releasing a new 2 Series which is not consistent with their new GEN designs (headlights and grill integration)?

Yep. And no air breather vents on side fenders.

Who said there's no US-spec 228i? Seems very likely that there will be.

Not to say that they might not also do a 220i as an uber-entry-level model maybe to compete head-on with the cheapo models from Audi and M-Benz.
