Sure, the BMW M235i would be a wonderful machine to put in your driveway or garage. It's not cheap though, and perhaps the 228i might be more in line with your budget. That doesn't mean you can't gain access to a vehicle that wants to reward you when the going gets twisty. BMW has just announced an option for those looking to extract more from their compact two-door. It's called the Track Handling Package, and it's jam-packed with enthusiasts goodies.

Should you check this box on the options list, your 228i will come equipped with M Adaptive suspension, a set of Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, 18-inch light-alloy wheels, Variable Sport Steering, and the M Sport brakes. That's a healthy list of smile-inducing bits, and it's easy proof of why you should be checking the aforementioned box on the aforementioned options list.

A BMW 228i equipped with this package will sit 10mm lower than the standard coupe, and the adaptive suspension will have the car working out exactly how it should be sitting for each new corner. This is done by adjusting the damping of the suspension at each wheel, and it does so in mere milliseconds. Those tires will have you sticking to the road, and the M Sport brakes will haul in the speed quite effortlessly.

There's no word yet on what the package will cost, but it should be an easy sale for any enthusiast-minded shopper that's pulling the trigger on the new BMW 228i.
