It's My Turn!! (pic heavy)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Here are some pics of my new M235i that I took delivery of a few months ago! I absolutely love this car! I got it tinted 50% all around and 85% on the windshield.

I also took some shots with our other cars to give people an idea of how it looks next to an F30 and E46.

Is that surface just loose gravel with dirt below?
Do you get snow?

Anyway, very nice and nice car collection.

Thanks!

Yes, it's just loose rocks/gravel and dirt below. We do get snow, but only a few times a year and it's typically only an inch or two and melts quickly.

Very nice pix!! Thank you for sharing. Howcome the E46 have the steering wheel on the right?

Edit: oh I looked up your location and noticed you're in the UK (on my iphone so i didn't see it at first). I suppose that makes sense. But your M235i has the steering wheel on the left side. That threw me off.

Good catch! I was wondering if anyone would notice!

We are US military stationed in the UK. So, the two lefthand cars are US spec that we will be shipping back to the US when we leave. The righthand drive one is a British spec and we will be selling it when we leave.

Haha, yeah it can be confusing switching from car to car, too!

Looks great.. In your pics you can really the e46 lineage in the M235. The Recaro baby seat made me chuckle. Now that's a real gear head, lol.

I love the look of the F22, but seeing it next to the e46, just makes me think of how sweet the M2 will look with some fender flares. The M235i really needs that to give it the same kind of presence the e46 has.

Noice! Very Noice!
Could tell it was a British house (or there abouts) straight away. Must be watching escape to the country too much.

I love the black on red combo. Lakenheath? I'm guessing the forces. Do you plan on taking the M235 home at some point?

That comparison demonstrates the overly squinted front treatment of the F30, as if it's taking itself too seriously. The 235i is easily the best looking of the three.

Yes! M2 will be amazing, but the F22 is nice because it won't attract as much attention.

You will absolutely love it! I cannot believe how much more fun it is to drive than the 330Ci and the 335i. And those are both very fun cars!

Haha, I don't know what show that is, but yeah British houses have a unique look that's for sure.

Yes, that is one of my favorites, too! The clouds overhead made it look even better.

Yes, my husband is stationed at Lakenheath and I am in the reserves at Molesworth. We are taking both the 235 and 335 home when we leave this October. We got the 235 at the end of April and I already put almost 3000 miles on it! I absolutely love this thing!

Yeah, I think the iPhone pictures make it look a little more squished than it really does in person. It is still a great looking car, but yes, the 235 is definitely better looking.

The black grills look best on a black car. I'm 50/50 on the MG. I'm still deciding whether to put them on my MG or not.
