If we were in the market for a fast and fun BMW saloon, we’d go right past the new M3/M4 and buy the cheaper, smaller M235i. This car, most experts agree, is closer in philosophy and character to the almost divine E30 M3. And that’s the point.
You buy a fast BMW saloon because you want to experience that sweet handling and superb performance of the M cars everybody talks about. If all you want is looks and features, there are tons of other car that will do better than, say, an M4.
So you should really consider the BMW M235i as an alternative to the full-fledged M cars. But you shouldn’t get a stock version, as these days M Performance Parts division offers some truly desirable goodies for this car, designed to enhance the driving experience.
This BMW M235i M Performance Kit from Abu Dhabi features a full-set M kit including sport bumpers, garnished with red accents in this case, Akrapovic exhaust system with carbon tips, large M wheels and beefed-up M suspension, and a wonderful M interior with red sport seats, carbon trims and an Alcantara-wrapped steering wheel.
BMW M235i M Performance Kit is powered by a 320 horsepower straight-six turbo engine and can also be ordered with a manual gearbox. It is the ultimate sports coupe for petrolheads.
