Curious as to what everyone thinks. The base price of the m235i is around 44k, I'm sure you could pick one up CPO or used for around 40k. Around 320hp, turbo 6, rear-wheel drive. I know, not really competition for the RS, but its another car that I have looked pretty hard at. Definitely more expensive, and a bit less power (on paper at least), but for me, someone looking for a daily driver that does everything (also no kids here =D ), the m235i makes up for that in build quality, and definitely a much higher quality interior.
