Best bang for your buck

by Maku from Palatine, IL on Mon Mar 06 2017

The 230i is perfectly balance and it feels like a very sturdy machine that is lots of fun to drive. In order to experience the best sport feel and fun, you either need to put it in sport mode or turn off all traction including stability control. Steering gets heavier and of course acceleration becomes more responsive. For a $40k car especially bmw there is nothing better. Actually I raced my friends 2011 335xi with a true cold air intake and the performance was almost identical. From 0-100 mph he only pulled half a car length and he has a auto trans and I have manual. Awesome comfortable car with very compact size and performance is way more than I expected, maybe because it's very light a little over 3300 curb weight

by bob from Deland fl on Wed Feb 28 2018

So far,as it is still new to me its great.Only thing negative it is a very technical car and you need to spend a lot of time with your head in the owners manual.

The ultimate driving machine is not just a slogan

by Dan from Huntington Beach, California on Wed Mar 15 2017

Best car I have ever had, Great for the first 5 years but started to get very expensive to keep on the road. you can pay to have it fixed or you can get a new one ever 5 to 7 years.

228I w track m suspension

by Howard from on Thu Apr 20 2017

All should be same except for greater power in 230i In a nutshell, everything in this car is superb for me except M SUSPENSION! Jiggly and loads of Road noise/vibrations on ALL BUT THE MOST PERFECT TARMAC. A track car. If you want everyday driving , try BASE SUSPENSION!

Return of a classic

by paulbythebay from San Francisco on Fri Jan 12 2018

My favorite car of all time was a late 90s 328i convertible. I didn't like the larger 3 series with folding top etc., and the 2 is closer to the original. Nothing like a convertible sports car.

Great little sports car!!

by Missm999m from South Bay, CA on Sun Jul 30 2017

It's a great little sports car. Has a lot of power -- 0 to 60. Fun to drive. Great residual value and has a lot of options that are built in.
