Proper M version of M235i, thoroughly re-worked with 370HP, 500Nm torque, 186mph top speed, 0-60 in 4.2 with M DCT and 29mpg. Safe, handling with prodigious rear end grip in Comfort and Sport modes.

Blue touchpaper version of already quick M235i.

Instead of 326PS you get 370PS. 0-60 in 4.2 from the M DCT and 4.4 from the manual 6 speed. 0-100 in under 10 seconds and a top speed of 186mph, limited to 155mph for M2s sold outside Germany.

Very competently reworked and more trustworthy than M235i at the back due to huge 265/35 ZR19 Michelin Pilot Super Sport rear tyres on 10-inch wide rims.

M Drive lets you switch from Comfort to Sport, which tightens things up and holds the gears longer, then to Sport Plus that switches off the electronic aids and allows you to burn tyres and drift luridly if you feel so inclined.

Decent satnav controlled by the i Drive comes as standard. Not as easy to use as Honda's latest Garmin system, but still very good.
