Saw this on carwow the other day... looks crap to me and I can assume the pricetag will be just as horrendous

Got a bit of a Korean look to it from some angles

Either way... it's a Thumbdown from me

Kill it with FIRE!!!

Hard to believe the same company that makes the M8 Grand Coupe (Which is now my all new favorite Beema that I can't afford, Sorry F10 M5) also makes this k@k.
If you are interested in something, No matter what it is
Go at it full speed
Embrace it with both arms
Love it
Live it
Be it
Above all become passionate about it

So both the 228i and the M235i is down on power from the outgoing models and it hurts your eyes when you look at is.
