Quick Vid: 2014 BMW M235i: More Than Just The Bargain M? (MotorTrend)

Continuing on the trend of cars I'm interested in daily driving, enter the new BMW M235i. I first found out about this car, coincidentally, buy looking at the BMW website in February and checking out prices and current offerings. Not long afterwards the web videos from Automotive Journalists starting trickling in, just about all of them touting the prowess of this new small sports car from BMW. The price is solid, the performance is a substantial value, but is it worth owning? That'll be up to you to decide, but you can use this vid as ammunition.
