The all-new 2015 BMW 2-Series Convertible has been revealed and is due in showrooms early next year. The pick of the bunch is clearly the M235i, which sports a turbocharged straight-six engine good for 320 horsepower and 330 pound-feet of torque.

Of course, it’s the priciest, too, with the starting price set to fall a couple of grand above the $44,050 sticker of the M235i coupe. The good news is that for a lot less money you can still get the look of the M235i by equipping the regular 228i variants of the 2-Series Convertible with the car’s available M Sport package.

That package includes a full body kit with more aggressive intakes in the front bumper, sporty side sills and a rear diffuser. It also includes uprated suspension, high-gloss chrome exhaust tips and 17-inch light alloy wheels with a unique BMW M design.

The M Sport package for the 2-Series Convertible also adds a few touches to the interior, which include a hexagonal pattern for the seat trim, Estoril Blue accents for the stitching and dash elements, and an ambient lighting package. There are also several M-badged goodies such as the door sill treadplates, steering wheel and gear shifter knob.

Note, BMW is also likely to offer the 2-Series coupe’s available Track Handling Package for the new convertible. This package adds many of the enhancements mentioned here as well as additional wheel, tire, steering and brake upgrades.
