BMW M235i vs 1M Coupe - vids + photos

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Since I saw the M235i for the first time, I started wondering how it compares to the 1 M. I had a chance to get an Estoril Blue M235i for a week, so I arranged a small comparison with my friends 1 M.



+ bonus



Hope you enjoy

Thank you!

Up to 200 kph (~125 mph) they go head to head, beyond that speed 1M is a bit faster. A great advantage for M235i is its gearbox - the blue one I've driven had 8spd auto.
We were to film some racing on autobahn later that night, but it started to rain, so the idea of filming became pointless

1M is way more rough, it's sharper and more focused on driver. M235i is more refined, is a way batter daily driver. It's as fast as 1M, but achiving the same speeds requires less from the driver.

M235i is one of my fav modern BMWs - just can wait for the M2!

The 2er is still weak sauce as compared with the 1M (and 135i).

Both cars are so awesome. The M235 just needs some 19s!
