Thanks for posting the video.

I had wondered why there were extra trim pieces over the fenders. It almost seems like BMW missed this during the design process and had to come up with a solution to be road legal.

This car looks amazing and its not even a full blown M car! Big step up compared to the last 2 series base car. Coming from someone that owned a M235i

agree

and 230i with M sports pkg I have on order almost looks same as the G42 M240i including the 19" Bi-color wheels I selected. Looks like my former 230i on steroids with a more modern & bolder twist

That video is unwatchable. What is with him using some stupid function on the camera to make it choppy when he's walking around. Just be steady!

Huh, weird.

I watched the entire thing and didn't notice any choppiness. Thought he did a great job, and was plenty steady for me.

Some countries require the entire width of the tire to be covered completely by the wheel well, some don't, like the US.

...This G42 is a beautiful car, I just ordered a 2021 M240i with a manual as I was so so SO hoping this 2022 would be a manual sub-(true)M.

Maybe one day ill give up the manual but for now....

I was convinced I needed those interior M highlighters but.. now seeing them in person, it really doesn't work.

Otherwise great overview. There is so much M in this thing which I am glad for. It means the new M2 should have the room to be even more hardcore, which most people probably won't need. Just heartbreaking there is no manual here or I'd probably be ordering one up.

I was convinced i need the M highlighters too! they did disappoint tbh but im hope that was cause pre-production and the actually ones with light up better. going to leave them in my build.

Nice video, nice car!

Although you can argue about the headlights, the grill, the rear etc, etc... it radiates that it's a real BMW with the clear intent to be be a real driving machine designed for your pleasure. That's a sentiment I miss in almost every other BMW today, including most of the real M line-up.

Would be curious to read the review of your own experiences in your new car soon!
