Launched in 2014, the BMW 2-Series Coupe & Convertible served as the direct successors to the BMW 1-Series Coupe and Convertible, as both of these models based on BMW’s entry-level hatchback model were spun off into their own model line. The F22 was 72 mm longer, 26 mm wider, and 5 mm lower than the preceding 1-Series model, as well as featuring perfect 50:50 weight distribution. Powertrains included a range of turbocharged petrol and diesel engines, as well as a twin-turbocharged inline-six tuned by BMW’s M Division, reserved for the F87 M2 coupe that utilised the F22 platform.
This is a 2014 BMW F22 220i Sport, finished in Black with a Black and Red highlights interior. This BMW 220i was originally specced as a Sport Line model with 17” star-spoke style light alloy wheels (Style 379). This car was originally sold as new by BMW Concessionaires HK Ltd. and was purchased directly from BMW Hong Kong as well by the current owner. They have kept this car fully stock with no additional modifications done to the exterior, interior, or running gear. All of the annual maintenance and service has been carried out as required, along with the latest MOT test that was completed in May 2022. The current owner reports that the front windshield was replaced with a new unit at one point. This 220i Sport has had zero previous owners, a current mileage of 20,659 km and the current road license is valid until 11th May, 2023.
The Black paint finish of this BMW F22 is in great condition – all of the body panels carry their original Black paint finish and align with each other. Two subtle surface marks were noted on the middle of the passenger side door, but some TLC can remedy this aesthetic imperfection. The front & rear bumpers and side portions are free of surface damage. Both front kidney grilles are fully intact. Both side doors, the bonnet and the boot lid open and close shut normally – none of their hinges or latches show any corrosion. Both side door mirrors and door handles do not have any surface damage, Both headlights, taillights, and side markers illuminate as they should – the daytime running LEDs also function normally. All of the BMW exterior badges and emblems are present with none missing any trim pieces. All four 17” BMW Style 379 alloy wheels do display some kerb rash from regular use (the rear driver’s side wheel also has a red surface mark), but a wheel refurbishment can easily restore their original appearance – none of them carries any severe damage.
Interior and Trim
Look inside and a compact BMW interior greets you. All of the Black leather seats are in excellent condition with no wear on their leather upholstery – all of the red contrast stitching has been preserved. The leather sports steering wheel is free of any surface wear. The electronic gear selector and handbrake lever are fully intact. Both side door panels and scuff plates with ‘BMW Sport’ lettering are free of any surface marks. The BMW iDrive infotainment system and all of its respective functions work normally – the control dial & console buttons show no surface wear and work as it should. The interior electronics – from the air conditioning to the interior lights all work normally without any problems. The instrument cluster’s LCD display shows no missing pixels.
