As you already know, the BMW M235i and 228i Coupes will be officially presented to the world at next week's 2014 Detroit NAIAS, where we'll be to bring you live coverage beginning Monday, Jan. 13.

We've already posted much information on the F22 2 Series in our Official M235i and 228i Thread, as well as the U.S. Pricing/Ordering Guides.

If you still have any unanswered questions regarding the F22, please submit them here as we'll be interviewing the 2 Series product specialists.

Any plans on performance seats? (Includes the US). Love the seats on the CLA45 AMG!

Price of the LSD?

Why so little color choices on the M235i? (No Valencia orange, limited to 3 interior colors)

Did ya fix the electric steering woes that everyone hates? Are you guys using an updated electric steering (I think from ZF?) like you are on the M3/M4, or is it the previous electric steering?

Were any updates made to the N55 engine, or is it just the regular N55 with MPPK?
Question I asked is because on the F30 forums you can see people already having limp mode, and they are without the MPPK.

Does the manual have rev matching?

Does it have active sound (engine noise through the speakers)?

How is the M235i better than the outgoing 135is? Is it lighter? Are the M sport brakes better than the 6 pot 135i brakes?
What is the difference between the M235i exhaust and the M performance exhaust. If I recall correctly, the 135is came with the performance exhaust.

(someone else said this) Why is sunroof standard on a sporty car? Why is manual a no cost option, if the car could be cheaper with a manual? Why no cloth option in the US (we are limited to 3 boring interior colors).

Power pack for M235i?

In sport mode, is the suspension still adaptive? I have read things on F30post that say the suspension is only adaptive in comfort mode. When you put it in sport mode, it goes to a fixed, sporty rate. Some people are claiming you get better lap times in comfort mode since the suspension is adjusting during the track. Want to know if this is true or not.

Any chance of the BMW Individual program on this car? Would love to have a choice of colors beyond the existing (and, frankly, pretty BORING) palette.

I remember reading that the performance manager mentioned that the 18 inch wheels handled better than the 19in, but it appears that this car is begging to have 19 inch rims. The car looks so much better. Will they offer something other then a $4000 option?

I too would love to see a performance seat option.

The oyster interior can we get it with black. In the same way that the red and black combination is offered?

+1 - would love to custom order a lemon interior.

And sunroof as a stand-alone on both trim levels would have been nice.

Is an M2 in the works? (or is the m235i the successor to the 1m coupe) - don't care about other models.

Would be nice to have an ///M2 with MT and DCT (yikes!) options.

Does it have an oil temp gauge like the 135?? All the interior pics I've seen show only a fuel gauge.

Regarding the M235i:

Will Oyster leather be available with black dash? Or will half the dash be the same color as the interior, similar to the 4 series?

Oh and please Add Amaro Brown Leather and Yars Marina Blue
