228i M-Sport real life pics?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi, this is a request. I'd like to see as many real life pics as possible of 228i M-Sport. Maybe we can keep them all here in one place. I looked for a thread like this already and didn't find.

Thank you kindly!!

No, haha that's what everyone thought when it was on the truck. It's just a sticker on the window. Went with blk interior, aluminum hexigon and estoril blue trim (which is actually a bit darker than what they used on the 4 trim)

How do you like the Hexagon, I'm still deciding between that and brushed aluminum on a black interior.

After wanting an M235i, I find myself gravitating more towards the 228i in MSport.

The M235 wheels are hideous.

I like it a lot. I almost went with brushed with the black gloss but glad I didn't.

I'm guessing ur referring to my pics, not the actual op. So thanks! You have to have ur client advisor add them to the order before it hits the VPC so the port can install them. Other than that, the blk kidneys will not be available aftermarket through BMW for a while. I'm really happy how it came out and I was able to residualize the cost too.

The 235 wheels look much better in the flesh than in photo's. You can also change the wheels very easily (you could ask the dealer to stick the M Sport wheels onto an M235)

Ccgonzales,

Congrats on the car!! What a beauty. Would you mind posting some pics of the interior showing the aluminum and blue trim and also the exterior from the rear?

This setup seems to be the sweet spot in the 2series.

So the fog lights are only in the Euro spec 228 m sport, right?

Here you go! As you can see the estoril blue is a little darker than the trim they used in the 4 series, which I really like. They also angled it back to give it more character and add a different dimension to the dash. As far as fog lights, to my knowledge working for bmw, the 228 will not come with fog lights in the us market.

Thanks. Adds a nice touch and colour to the interior!

Any exterior rear shots?

The little details on the 228i M Sport actually make it look better than the M235i. The wheels, twin side polished exhaust, and body colored side mirrors all work better together.

I agree. I wish a 235 could be ordered with body color mirrors and those wheels with the PSS's.

Have you had this done previously? I asked my dealer about it, and the best I could get was "It will depend on inventory at the time"
