More importantly, have you driven it!?!

Keen to compare to a E92 M3. Not sure which way to go.

OK I am confused. Everyone keeps comparing the M235i to the M3. Is this the M car or is this just a 235i with M sport package? And why is this comparison being made?

The M235i is not a M car like the M3/4. It's about halfway there.

From my perspective I'm toying between a used E93 M3 and a new F22 M235i as my next car.

I'm comparing the 2 because IMO they will be about the same price (M3 still a slight premium for an LCI). I'm keen to feel the difference in the handling and drivability of the two. The power delivery of a naturally aspirated V8 against a forced I6. Size and practicality. Can all the power be used and enjoyed on the street?

Ideally I'd love a M2 but I'm not prepared to wait until sometime in 2015.

Thanks for clearing that up for me. Does BMW usually do a preorder for new models? I would like to get an order in if possible if the reveal goes as planned,

Dealers have been taking deposits for about a couple months now.

Ordering should start sometime in November

Wow, sounds like you both need to find a new dealership to work with


Kidding aside, I have been confirmed in early September that my dealer had officially secured 1 allocation for an M235i which was the deposit I put down.
