We got our first 228i in today. Short first impression, I love it. The short wheel base makes the car more nimble. The 240 hp is more than enough. The artificial or real engine sounds better than the current 328i. I actually like the standard wheels over the M235i's wheels.
It would be the perfect Jalop car out of all the "budget" BMWs in my opinion.
Who wants to buy one from me?
