    When comparing the cost of Bilsteins+H&R or Tein Springs itís hard to not consider coils cause for close to the same price you can at least have adjustable height & dampening

    That's a fair point. My suspension is completely shot. It's pretty harsh and doesn't absorb road imperfections well at all. So if that's what a harsh suspension feels like, I guess I can handle it if it's more stable. Not sure if I like much harsher than what it is now

    Is there any member here who has an M235i? How does it compare with the ZHP? I've already done some digging online in the other forums, and only found one comp.

    After 7 years and 206k miles later (131k added by me) with the ZHP, I've been looking at the 2016 MY's...not 2017+ M240i, just last MY's with the N55.

    Iíve spent an extended amount of driving time in one. It totally depends on what youíre looking for. iDrive is really nice and the seats are really comfortable compared to my M3 seats. The power will never feel as instant being a turbo but you get an ample amount of power. Through the corners the car could hold its own but didnít feel as confident as my E46. If I had 50k. Unlike the 4 series, the 2 series is very close to size compared to E46. In the 4 series, which we now have apart of our family, you can feel that additional 8 inches or so in width every time we take it out.

    I also drove the M2 competition in Monterey and I think Iíll go against the grain and say that car has an amazing engine and great tech, but driving right after the M4 competition, you could feel how much BMW held back on M tech. Most notable the M2 also shared that ďlack of confidenceĒ in the corners. I pushed the M2 way harder than I pushed the M235i, but it felt really unsettled with bumps through a corner.

    Finally, depending on the year M235i, the steering leaves a lot to be desired. Granted the comparison is E46, but we complain almost all the time in our 4 series that itís hard to tell how hard your pushing the car - and it inspires virtually no confidence as a byproduct. My mom hates taking the 4 series through a corner quickly because it really makes her feel uncomfortable. Itís her first BMW and she definitely was expecting something closer to my E46. All I will say is I felt something similar with the M235i, but not to that intensity. I highly suggest you find a spec you like at a dealer and take it for a test drive. We test drive hard and if youíre in the market, it pays for you to as well.

    Is there a way to visually tell if a LCM supports auto leveling by the exterior, or do you always need a vin?

    So I went under the car to investigate a periodic rubbing sound which increases in frequency with wheel speed, as well as a loud click sound whenever I brake or change gears between reverse and drive. From the things Iíve read, it sounded like it might be poorly positioned brake pads, so I examined them, but they look fine. Then I decided to look under the rear suspension and found this. Pretty much the same on the other side. Do I need to replace my diff? I am at 100k miles.

    Is it the diff or the axles making the noise?
