2022 BMW M240i G42 Review (French)

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Here's a video of the new 2 series. Yes, I know the video isn't in English, but I thought I would share this because the video does provide some good shots of the car from an exterior and interior perspective.

Thanks for the video. Too bad it was such an overcast day. Kind of dulls the beautiful Thundernight paint.

I love the proportions of this car.

This may be the first time I prefer a BMW without Shadowline trim. The regular M Sport looks better to me at least on Thundernight. I prefer the contrast trim on the grill and triangle style lower vents.

Do we know if the M2 will have bigger/wide tail lights/ head lights?

No we can only speculate. Spy shots don't reveal the lights.

More importantly when one of them can actually drive the car.

Nice vid of the outside & inside. I really like the interior a lot - looks clean, very modern & just nice. The gauge cluster is sharp, too! Glad to see that change - about time! (Didn't Chevy have digital gauges back in the mid-80's on that Beretta & I think the 'Vette, too?)

Not a fan of the over-styled front end (Pontiac called - they want their styling back), nor that HUGE rear end (to quote Niobe: "She's got a fat ass".)

Headlights... meh. Headlights styled after the 4's sinister-looking headlights would have just been killer on that front face. I don't get these headlights at all.

I like modern angles/lines & aggression, but this doesn't look like a right step in the modernization direction. It's dated to my eyes. No offense to those who like/love it.

I think it looks pretty good in the video. I really like the wider stance and flared wheel wells. one of my biggest complaints about my current m240i is how narrow it looks especially from the rear. the one thing I really dislike in the new one is those triangle intakes on the front. just don't understand why they are so massive and really take away from the looks of the front bumper imho.

Yeah, this should be a big improvement I reckon. The next M2 will be even better but I think this is good enough for daily driving.

You would have thought they would've been on top of that now, can't be just 2-3 cars doing the rounds

Was on the fence with the exterior design up until now but geez it's looking very promising in the vid. Interior is a big win as is the wide stance, fender flares and bulge on the hood. Can't wait to see it in person. Might be making an early exit out of my current lease!

Must admit I don't love the large intake triangles. But overall the wider stance, the bulged hood and the flared fenders make this generation look a lot more aggressive. Rear of Car I am ok with, i know some are not.

And yes the lights are different plus the black underside but change happens as vehicle evolve and at least the G42 is not a clone of any BMW and has its own personality

Can’t get enough of the G42. Shadowline is growing on me, looks great here.

Headlights and taillights are really the only complaint I have with the design. Hope they look better in person.

tough to see any of these vehicles in stock, I remember when I ordered my 2018 230i there was none in stock to check options. Most dealers stock 3 series and X-3 & X-5. Even difficult to see 4 series coupes in stock
