I remember it like it was yesterday.
The eagerly awaited 2011 BMW 1M was confirmed for production and I finally had a chance to slip behind the wheel and take it for a spin. It didn't take long before I realized it was one of my favorite BMW experiences in a long time.
Don't get me wrong, BMW makes great products but they're not the same as they used to be. As the organization chases more market share, it caters to a more luxury-like ride and less of the Spartan, sporty quality.
BUT, the 1M brought it back. Unfortunately the car was made in VERY limited quantities — supposedly less than 800 are roaming the States — and it was only made for the 2011 model year.
This is where the M235i comes in. As the theoretical "follow up" to the 1M, it's received RAVE reviews abroad — at least the M135i has. So, can it continue that success?
Our very own Agent 001 was on hand in Las Vegas to find out. Check out what he thought in the video below.
Automotive social media news site AutoSpies.com (The TMZ/WikiLeaks of autos) breaks this exclusive video review of the all new BMW M235i and a showcase of the M-Performance package add ons available for it. Is it a worthy successor to the 1m? Should the competition fear it? Is it a resurrected E36 M3 geared towards the BMW traditionalists?
