A sleeper car that looks good!

by Brian ;) from Rockford IL. on Thu Feb 15 2018

This car is wonderful to drive it goes into turns and asks for more. The control in the rain on the interstate is amazing. The seats are very comfortable and supportive. Drove six hundred miles, got out of the car I felt like I could do two three hundred more.

Very good vehicle

by Coltsfan from on Tue Jan 31 2017

Have enjoyed every minute that I get to drive this. It hugs the road and the engine is very peppy. The idrive takes a bit getting used to but once you have it its pretty easy to use.

Expected more.

Too complex to take full advantage of info control. After purchase you are sent a "special" to explain how to operate the controls. Apparently even the agents can't explain it to you. The IT guy says you'll have to come back because of the complexity. There's a lot of road noise going down the road.

Nice looking sports car.

by DonCap from Springfield MO on Tue Mar 07 2017

Once again BMW fails in the area of outside mirrors. I also own a 2015 Mustang and it has a better mirror system. Both are two doors and it's hard to reach the seat belt in a BMW. Mustang has solved this problem a long time ago. The 2 series makes a lot of noise when compared to the 3 series. But my 2 series has M components and it is an outstanding sports car and a dream to drive it. It's expensive but I bought a used one with 6 k miles. Simply put, it's a beautiful Melbourne Red two door 228 ix with several M accessories and I love it.

Nice car

by MADMAN from Madison, WI on Tue Mar 28 2017

I really enjoy driving this car. It can go when you need the power, the design is stylish yet has amazing room and storage for a coupe.

by seashells from North Kingstown on Tue Jun 19 2018
