That is screaming for black kidney grilles, would look 1000x better. Not that it looks bad as-is.

Why isn't this color available for the 235? Seems a travesty...

The whole color thing is upside down in my opinion with more options for 228. Nothing against the 228 guys, glad they're getting the colors, but 235 should have as many colors at the very least and probably more.

Yup, I'm happy for the 228 owners, but you would think that an aggressive color like VO would be available for the 235. I can't imagine why it isn't, other than marketing.

I think because it was a 1M exclusive color at first and they want to keep those owners happy.

Oh MAN.

If that were available with the M Sport, I would have jumped on it in a second.

You think they'll be happier with 228s running around in that color as opposed to 235s? I like exclusive colors, wish BMW, Audi etc. would get back to that.

It's available on the M135i here in Europe, so makes no sense at all why the left it off the M235i

You can get m235i in this color

My dealer said you CAN order the M235i with colors only available on the 228i......wondering if it will possibly cost more money?

Seriously? If that can be verified add that to the list of reasons I am starting to hate my yet to be delivered car. HK not as advertised, comfort access, etc. At this point I am thinking about saying f*ck it, let him sell the one I ordered to someone else and reorder a 2015 with a different set of options. Orange, black leather, park assist, that's it.

great color

what would be a good leather for this Valencia orange. Dakota brown, silver or black?
By the way, I was told this color and Moonglow silver can be ordered on the M235i...possibly at an extra cost??

I think you'd have to go with black, the brown / orange combo would look bizarre IMO. I think the best setup would be black kidney grilles, black mirrors to match the black trim, and black leather. With a flashy color the more the rest all works together the better. That's what I'd do at least.

That is an awesome color on the 2er. Maybe by the time I get to ordering one, it will be available on the 235. Probably not ordering until next year.

This needs black kidney grills, angel eyes and black shadowline trim.

As for the interior, I don't know. The brown might look like a Reese's. Delicious! rofl

no one would ever confuse a M135i with a 1M, the M235i on the other hand is the same type of car, I suspect they don't mind having it on the "non-racey" 2ers for this reason. The msport 228 and m235i have similar front fascias to a 1M and that is enough for bmw.
