The M235 is limited in colors ... VO will look great on this car but you have to get the 228, which is not bad in itself given the saving.

I ordered mine at the end of December with the setup below. I have my production and vin numbers and I am in the process of tracking her. I'm still waiting on Performance Parts pricing so I don't know the whole number, but this is how I built her.

M235i coupe
Mineral Grey Metallic
LCSW
ZDA
ZPP
ZTP
302
4DL
674
ZMT

$51,250 (inc dest charge)

//www.bmwusa.com/Standard/Content/BYO/SharedBuild.aspx?ConfigurationId=4978653

I'll be coming off a 335is which cost me 11k more and I honestly can't find anywhere this baby falls short other than overall size.

Should see her in March. Very excited! I'm hoping there's a bit of a "cult" following that goes along with ownership that some of the other BMW models have.

I'm in a 14' M6 with a manual tranny. BMW must have upped its game on manual transmissions. This tranny is MUCH smoother than my 11' M3. I'm thinking they may have listen to the complaints about their "notchy" transmissions.

I'm tempted to get a M235 as a run-a-bout to compliment my M6.

I'll be very disappointed if this thing really weighs 3505 with a manual. That's 300 lbs more than my old E46 sedan. A lot of lightness technology has been developed in the past 10 years. When you factor that in a lot more than 300 lbs has been squandered on this car. How can Porsche make cars at just over 3000 lbs? How can BMW not notice? Or not care.
