The official AUTOID M240i xDrive has arrived!

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com


We picked up one of the UK's first BMW G42 2 series to add to our growing shop car fleet. The new M240i xDrive Coupť pairs an all-wheel drive system with the BMW M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder engine, a combination we couldn't resist.

The spec
- Brooklyn Grey Paint
- Cognac Leather interior
- 19" 893 M Double-spoke Bicolour Alloy
- M Adaptive Suspension
- M Sport Brakes with Red Callipers
- Technology Pack





The M240i didnít receive the best of reactions when images were first released and to be completely honest, we werenít in love with the car either until we saw it in the flesh. Itís been involved in controversy since day one but with the right mods, we think this car has the potential to turn heads for all the right reasons.


Being the first brand new car that we have brought as a company, it was a special day for us going to pick it up. Tony Lewis (@trldeals) made it even better, giving us the special treatment down at BMW Croydon - a big thank you to him and the rest of the team. Watch our first impressions and first drive video here:


Our MD Jack drove it back to AUTOID HQ where it was put straight on our ramp, you didnít think weíd buy a car and leave it stock for longer than 24 hours did you?

Agree. And it looks worse in person

Just because itís new, doesnít mean itís good. Iím sure the shop is going to add a bunch of overpriced carbon fiber crap and then say they Ďmodifiedí it

Actually looks better in person. And better than the F22.

Youíre entitled to your opinion, even if itís outrageous. But most people donít agree with you, and I donít agree with you.

Have fun with the BMW BRZ

So if you donít like it, why waste your time here? Not being smart, legitimate question. I donít understand why people, who donít like a car, hang out in the forum.

this is the second time i've read it being compared to the brz, specifically the tail lights. the tail lights are not pleasing to look at but nowhere near as bad as oem brz tail lights. where do you see brz on this car?

Because it's a BMW and in this particular case the next gen of the F22. So why can't he ventilate his honest opinion here?

I just donít understand why you feel the need to go way out of your way harshing everyone elseís mellow for no reason. You donít like it. Great. We get it. I think yours is slow, outdated, and old-looking but you donít see me running around raining on everyone elseís parade. Take up a hobby, like knitting or whittling or something.

Thereís respectful ways to vent and share an opinion, without trying to make people who like the car feel bad - which they shouldnít. I have many longtime BMW driving peers who didnít like this car in photos, saw it IRL and changed their mind.

Anyway if salty and butthurt is the tone youíre trying to set, do you.

I'll admit I was one of those who thought this car was kinda fugly when I first saw pics of it. Hated how they designed the front end and made the car longer (actually wasn't too bothered about the tail lights). Once I saw it in person, my opinion took almost a complete 180. Although I still would've preferred the front end (mainly the triangle vents) to be designed slightly different, this car looks sooooooo much better in real life and way better than the F22.
