2018 BMW M240 Review--THE BEST BMW YOU CAN BUY!!

Оценок: 559 | Просмотров: 27216
The BMW 2-Series is the smallest BMW in the family currently sold in North America. It is a 2-door coupe or Cabriolet and sold with two different engines. The M240 is the purest car in the BMW lineup, with a small size, low power tao wight ratio, a powerful 340hp turbo 6-cylinder and sold with a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic. The BMW M240 can be ordered with all wheel drive or rear wheel drive. The manual transmission is only sold with RWD and this model has a 10mm lower ride hight. The BMW M240 is roughly the same size as a BMW E46 from the 1990s and as car models get bigger this really is the choice for buyers who want a small, nimble, fun to drive car with a pure attitude that is missing from many German cars today. This is also the bargain in the BMW line with a starting price of $47,000 CDN and the AWD model starting at $51,000. Compred to the much more expensive M2, with only 25hp more, this is the BMW to choose if you want to have some fun without killing the bank balance.

It is a very good car to live with and a lot of fun. I have a m235 and it’s amazing.

Jezzzz, 50k for a compact coupe, it's a robbery in broad daylight. In 3,4 years time, no fool wants to pay for it for even half of that!

not even close....it's boring as hell compared to the M2....

The straight 6 from BMW Made BMW!

Two things stopping me from "recreating" my old Dinan supercharged E36 M3 with an M240. No LSD, and no Android Auto. Hate one wheel peel, and hate Apple (hmm, there's a peel thing in common there...)
Kyle Jett (5 дней назад)
The M2 would probably be the better purchase if you are going to keep the car longer than a lease term. It will have a way higher resale value than the m240...prices on m235s are already pretty low and its basically the same car, same generation. Not to mention it looks quite a bit nicer. My cousins 330ci zhp was 53k new... my zcp m3 of the same year was 59k. He has put 55k miles on it and would be lucky to get 12k for it now on the used market. Had he sprung for the m3, he would be sitting on a 30 or 40 thousand dollar used car. Real M or nothing.

If Toyota chooses a BMW engine to put in their new Supra, I sure as hell wouldn’t mind this engine. But maybe there’s still hope we get a 3JZ with an optional manual...

I believe it is a BMW engine. There is a nurburgring test mule video.

Excellent review! Very nice to know BM still has something to offer of the sort that I have always loved them for, I have little use for the bigger, over weight units that I can't much afford anyway.

I cheaped out and got the Audi S3 instead, just hated the way BMW Canada did their option and packages. Hope they don't get rid of the inline 6 a few years.

I'd take a top shelf Golf over this entry level BMW all day long.

Will there be any damage done even if u rev-match downshift? I know the computer will auto-rev for you
Rich Tube (11 дней назад)
Yep, call me old fashioned, but this car is what I think of when thinking BMW. Despite chasing sales in other segments, I respect this car in a way I don’t with other BMW products.

Lexus is350 has an inline 6 I believe.

Jeff Gao you are right. My bad. Zack was saying inline and I was hearing naturally aspirated.

BMW always undercuts the real/actual horsepower. If you measured at the wheel, this car probably has 375+ easy.
bob starr (8 дней назад)
at the wheel? i've seen dyno runs on youtube where you get that at the crank. way more believable.

This car is basically the modern version of the E46 M3. Driver's car and for purists.
Bo McGillacutty (7 дней назад)
It sure sounds like it, fantastic to know there is still something offered that attracted me to BM in the first place.

I love that Sunset Orange Metallic colour.  Great review Zack!  I lusted after the M235i a few years ago, but it was slightly out of my budget.  I have a Golf R now, but I hope BMW still makes these small straight-6 coupes when it comes time for me to upgrade.
Rudy F (12 дней назад)
.. too bad it looks a bit homely.
YasumotoUS (20 часов назад)
That design language is true to form and similar to the older BMW 3-series sedans and coupes. They didn't scream 'performance oriented' until you saw the M badge on their rump. Plus, these designs will hold up for decades (can't speak for the underlying hardware and my body shop buddy says to stay away from 10+ yr old BMWs at least in the North East USA).
Bo McGillacutty (6 дней назад)
Somewhat perhaps, not the worst maybe not the best, but it might grow on you. For me--form follows function so if I like the car otherwise the appearance will be enhanced in my perception. At least it's not remotely American/Asian degree of hideousness, but then we expect a little more from BM.

Please make a video on your fav cars from every car manufacturers - both discontinued and still being manufacture
cococly (12 дней назад)
Top tips, if you were to buy this car, finance it instead of leasing it. They give you a much lower residual value at the end of the lease than the actual end of lease market value. So you ends up paying much more than the depreciation, and you are almost "forced" to buy the lease damage coverage. This car could be the last BMW in Canada to have a Manual Transmission. It would be a hot item in a few years time in the preowned market. Finance or cash, dont lease.
Zeno Cosini (12 дней назад)
New M2 will come with inline 6 from M4.
Zeno Cosini (12 дней назад)
I agree. Great little car in BMW line up.
Bryan Hobson (12 дней назад)
You have an error in your description, the car has 340BHP, not 240.
Keith & Ericka Moore (12 дней назад)
Hey Zack, great review. I am not sure if you have driven an M2, but although it has only 25 more hp - to me, it’s night and day , the M2 is a whole different animal. The M2 just feels like it’s on an entirely different level especially when equipped with the MPE. The M240 feels like a sporty car...the M2, like a sports car and it’s so much better looking with the flared fenders and aggressive bumpers. I would be keen to get your feedback and/or review of the M2. Love your reviews!
ming lin (12 дней назад)
M2 with S55 engine is the real M2
Jim M (12 дней назад)
I’ve been driving manual transmission cars since day one; about 37 years now. I still have no idea what or why a heel and toe downshift is or why anyone would need to do that.
YasumotoUS (20 часов назад)
Ashamedly, I've never been versed in rev-matching and I've just started self-training in the practice. It really makes a difference when downshifting at speed. I haven't found the right foot position, but I'll get there. And, no, I don't race, but I like spirited driving w/in safe limits on public roads.
Foto4Max (1 день назад)
Must be an american thing. Everyone in the world learn go rev match a mt, in the USA it’s ‚special‘.
MyRealName (4 дня назад)
Also if you're driving at high rpm, you're braking and you're downshifting, matching revs close to redline, high forces of engine braking in high rpms can damage the gearbox. Heel and toe makes for perfectly smooth transition from higher gear to lower, thus saving the gearbox from any change in forces :) Someone already mentioned that you can upset the rear end by quickly donwshifting without matching the revs and this is the most important aspect if you drive fast on track, but also on wet and slippery roads in normal driving..
Wicha329 (7 дней назад)
For taking corners fast. I'm guessing you don't race much, which is okay. Niether do I. It just explains why you never do it.
Billeh (9 дней назад)
Because if driving spiritedly or on a racetrack or autocross course, if you come into a corner hot and brake and downshift if you don’t heel toe you can easily upset the car and throw it into a spin.
Jeff King (12 дней назад)
Nice car and great video - thanks!
altershape (12 дней назад)
Great review Zack. My problem with the M240 is that you can't have a manual with the all wheel drive. What other cars have all wheel drive and a manual option other than M340, A4, Golf R, Focus RS (RIP) and WRX/STi? Currently have a WRX and a desire for more power..
Devin F (12 дней назад)
you forgot to mention torque! The M240 has 26 lb-ft MORE than the M2
Fernando Alvarado (10 дней назад)
Yea in the m2 2017 n55 the torque its the same with the overboost function 500 nm torque, in the m2 competition its 550 nm, my old m235i was 450 n.m ( sold) the are incredible good perfomance for the money actually. thinking to buy a new m240i
Devin F (12 дней назад)
I just got that from their website comparing the two models
Motormouth (12 дней назад)
Torque is the same
Mike Ho (12 дней назад)
Hey Zack great concise reviews as usual. Can you comment on steering feel especially on center responsiveness? You mentioned in a previous video that early electric steering is numb which I agree. Has this changed with this 240i?
Motormouth (12 дней назад)
Yes, very good.
Mike (12 дней назад)
M2 competition package is the only M2 you can buy as of next year. Has the M3/4 engine and makes over 400 hp
chomihai (12 дней назад)
Too bad is so ugly
Stephen Bradley (12 дней назад)
Umm #BMW are recalling over 300,000 cars, depending on which part or software needs replacing I'll wait.
Mike McGlock (12 дней назад)
why would people buy this when you can get a loaded 3-series for the same price... bigger car and 2 more doors...or even an X3 for not much more.
Mike McGlock (11 дней назад)
Jack Liu the majority of people who buys cars beg to differ. Get out of your parent's basement.
Jack Liu (11 дней назад)
Uh no. Who cares about doors. You drive this car for the handling and fun factor. Completely different market.
Mike McGlock (12 дней назад)
ak2112 that's like saying sedans are better than hatchbacks.... lol
rockn roll (12 дней назад)
agreed. 3 series is where the value is for most people. more room and 4 doors for the same price
ak2112 (12 дней назад)
Mike McGlock because this is better. Who the hell wants to drive an x3?
GlassOnion23 (12 дней назад)
I wish the auto-rev match feature is off by default. And the fact you have to turn off TC to deactivate it is a bummer. What kind of customer would prefer a manual transmission but wouldn't want to rev match and heel-and-toe themselves? It makes little sense to me.
Mag neto (12 дней назад)
Not the best looking BMW.
VanIslandCarGuy (12 дней назад)
Hey Zack you need to remember that the M2 is going out of production and has been replaced by the M2 Competition with 406hp with the engine from the current M3/M4......
OmerTheGreatOne (12 дней назад)
Midnight Beast (12 дней назад)
cost waay more..
golfbuddy1969 (12 дней назад)
The new M2 this year will have more than 400.

Not to take a joke seriously, but I've been driving BMs for 15 yr.s, have two now including 2011 M3, I *always use turn signals, even in the darn parking lot, not kidding*

The M235 is a nice used car. The only omission is the LSD.
Ben Haze (12 дней назад)
Zack, here is a question for you: I know these are 2 different cars but you happen to like both very much. For the same price a base M240i (no option) you can get a Mustang GT with the performance package, Magneride suspension and the interior upgrade (including sat radio and android auto, Sync 3 with large screen). Which one do you find is the most fun to drive between these two?
robbieshaft (4 дня назад)
I don’t know, I mean the Ford is a V8 yes but it’s an awful thirsty car
Jack Liu (11 дней назад)
Stang has shit handling compared to this car. No comparison. Unless all you care is drag.
WeekendParty __ (11 дней назад)
Ya GT. V8, way more power, and cheaper! Bmws are little,overpriced unless you lease and get a good deal. Different markets though. Bmw is luxury vehicle, mustang is entry
Ben Haze (12 дней назад)
Ok thanks!!
Motormouth (12 дней назад)
Mustang GT!
Jeff K (12 дней назад)
I think this engine in the upcoming Toyota Supra is going to be the best combo. They have released a few specs and the car is only going to way 3200 lbs. It also shouldn't cost anymore than the m240.
Ejmin Khashaki (8 дней назад)
I really love this car. I've been thinking about trading my 2017 Audi S3 with one of these ultimate machines. What would you suggest?
WeekendParty __ (11 дней назад)
Keep your Audi. Bmws are so overpriced, and I’m saying this as a bmw owner.
Asphalt (12 дней назад)
Ejmin Khashaki or you could wait for the gran coupe version
Jeff K (12 дней назад)
That rev matching feature would be the best feature in the world on a tractor trailer.

padistedor (12 дней назад)
This car will be in high demand in the preowned market.
DScroggins Production (4 дня назад)
M235i and M240i are essentially the same. 240 just a slight bump in power and digital dash. But I have the JB tune some make way more power.
Ken S (10 дней назад)
Mike McGlock exactly! The 340i comes in manual for both awd and rwd
Outdoor Layne (11 дней назад)
Yeah - lots for sale in my area but with expected significant depreciation.
Claire Kennedy (12 дней назад)
Leon Chan I'll take it off your hands baby
Mike McGlock (12 дней назад)
Not really when you can get a 340i for almost the same price.
Billy Hughes (12 дней назад)
Too bad they do make this in a hatchback -- my next car will probably be the Golf R. Funny you made the comparison.
Billy Hughes (5 дней назад)
I have but they don't sell that car in the U.S. Plus, it's not my favorite looks-wise. Golf R is probably the way I will go.
Wisdom Ntshalintshali (6 дней назад)
Billy Hughes You've never heard of the M140i?
Bo McGillacutty (7 дней назад)
Billy Hughes Now WHY would you go and do THAT?? (sorry, I just can't get my head around FD and highly partial to BMWs and balanced cars)
Vittra (12 дней назад)
Hatchback exists, but they don't bring it to the north american market - M135i /M140i = M235i / M240i. With Mercedes bringing the A250 to Canada, maybe we'll see BMW options at some point in the future as well.
Hks 123 (12 дней назад)
He mentioned both at different times
Seungkyu Park (12 дней назад)
Please do a review of the rs3
Winston Rajendram M.D. (12 дней назад)
Hey Zack great review. I agree with everything you said. You know on the BMW USA website the 0 to 60 time for the M2 is 4.1 seconds, M240i xdrive it is 4.2 seconds. I'm assuming it's the same in Canada :). I think it's great value for a car that quick that you can also drive all year around.
msmintygreen (12 дней назад)
Very cool car! Have you done any reviews on the 1series?
Mark Dion (12 дней назад)
Guys, would you choose this over a Cayman?
Winston Rajendram M.D. (12 дней назад)
Leon Chan good to know. Thanks!
Leon Chan (12 дней назад)
No way. Cayman is a true sport car. I own a m235i. The manual gear box on the car sometimes grind the 2nd gear on fast shift. Common issue. I getting rid of the car before warranty expires
JakeDrives (12 дней назад)
Winston Rajendram M.D. they don’t make an AWD Cayman. Wishful thinking though.
Winston Rajendram M.D. (12 дней назад)
Jeff K yup Cayman...all day.
Jeff K (12 дней назад)
Probably not, the cayman is a true sports car. The question is going to be would you choose this over the upcoming Supra?
Mark Dion (12 дней назад)
Love it!! Thanks so much for the review :)
