‘Antisocial

behaviour’

upsets

Moncks Bay

residents

• By Louis Day

YOUTHS PARTYING into

the early hours of the morning,

littering and even defecating

near a car park in Moncks Bay

is causing tension within the

community.

In a letter to the Linwood-

Central-Heathcote Community

Board, the Redcliffs Residents

Association said it had received a

number of complaints from residents

living on Main Rd and Cliff

St about some of the “antisocial

behaviour” at the car park which

sits next to the Christchurch

Yacht Club.

The association has said cases

of loud music and noise keeping

residents awake throughout the

night has got noticeably worse

over the past year. It has also received

reports of part of the beach

surrounding the car park being

littered on and even used as a

toilet. Youths have also been seen

entering Cliff St to use the red

zone for toileting purposes.

The association wants the city

council to consider installing a

chain to prevent cars using the car

park at night.

It also wants a temporary

Portaloo to be installed at the car

park. • Turn to page 3

Treated Akaroa wastewater

will be used to irrigate trees

Barrier being

considered to

prevent entry

TREATED Akaroa wastewater

will be used to irrigate native

trees in the area.

The Akaroa treated wastewater

options hearings panel has

concluded its deliberations on

four options for dealing with the

wastewater.

The panel,

comprising

Christchurch

city councillors

Sara Templeton,

Mike

Davidson and

Sara

Pauline Cotter,

and Banks

Peninsula

Templeton

Community Board chairwoman

Tori Peden and member Nigel

Harrison, considered 343 written

and 65 oral submissions on

the topic.

Akaroa’s wastewater system is

old and needs to be replaced.

City council staff sought community

feedback on four options

for dealing with highly treated

wastewater from a new plant

already consented to be built on

Old Coach Rd.

Three of the options involved

using highly treated wastewater

to irrigate new areas of native

trees and one to continue discharging

it into Akaroa Harbour

via a new outfall.

The panel unanimously supported

irrigating native trees

and chose the Inner Bays option

(Robinsons Bay, Takamātua and

Hammond Point) over Goughs

Bay or Pompeys Pillar.

The panel members agreed the

Inner Bays option as outlined in

the consultation booklet needed

additional recommendations.

This is to enable smaller storage

ponds and to future proof

the system so that a purple pipe

reuse system can be added in

future, when regulations allow.

Templeton said she agrees

with submitters that a sustainable

development approach is

needed and wants the council to

work towards this.

“However, the current framework

doesn’t support this, so we

need to lobby central government

with other agencies and

Ngāi Tahu, to set standards for

non-potable reuse of treated

wastewater.

“In the meantime, we need to

act on the current situation and

if standards are not set, the default

position for council simply

cannot be a harbour outfall.”

Reducing the impact on the

communities of Takamatua and

Robinsons Bay is important and

both city council and Akaroa

residents need to play their part,

she said.

“We need to fix the pipes and

work towards reuse and Akaroa

residents need to treat the precious

water supply as the taonga

REUSE: The city council

is looking at wastewater

options for Akaroa.

that it is – to conserve it and

lower the impact of their waste

on their neighbours.”

The panel has recommended

that the city council actively

works with regulators to make it

possible for purple pipe systems

to be introduced in New Zealand.

“This has been an extremely

difficult project and has involved

a lot of hard work by many

people over many years, and I

thank everyone for their efforts,’’

Templeton said.

“I know the community will

want to stay involved in this project

and we have recommended

a community reference group be

established.’’

The full recommendations will

be available online this week.

• From page 1

Linwood-Central-Heathcote

Community Board chairwoman

Alexandra Davids said work was

currently being done behind

the scenes at the city council to

resolve some of the concerns of

the community.

“This is an issue that has been

going on for a while. We already

have got security guards going

down the road and locking up

different areas of concern,” she

said.

Davids also said the city

council was planning to install

a barrier which would prevent

vehicle entry into the car park at

night.

However, Davids did not think

temporary toilets would be a

good idea for the area.

“We know there is an

issue there but we would not

support putting in Portaloos

because you get high winds in

the area and you also get silly

people that want to push them

over which is not conducive to

anything.

“There are already toilets in

the area at Barnett Park. We will

make sure once the barrier is

put in we will get some signage

installed on it.”

Are you ready?

Dave Bryce of

the Redcliffs/

Te Rae Kura

Eco Village

group says it

is focusing on

resilience.

IN NOVEMBER, the Redcliffs-Te

Rae Kura Eco Village Group initiative

is focussing on Resilience.

The term “resilience” refers to

the ability to survive and adapt to

changes in society or the environment.

Being prepared for emergencies

helps us recover quicker when

disasters strike.

There are many risks to be aware

of including: heavy rain, hail,

snow, flooding and landslides; sea

inundation from tsunami and sea

level rise; strong winds, falling

trees and wildfires; earthquakes,

liquefaction and rockfall; droughts;

extreme heat and cold, and job

loss.

Our basic needs are water, food,

shelter, power, skills and money.

Water is essential, you can

survive for weeks without food,

but only days without water. Emergency

tap water storage is essential

and roof water storage can provide

a back-up.

Food in the form of fresh vegetables

and fruit may be available if

you have a garden, but you should

also have emergency supplies of

canned and dry foods.

Our primary shelter is our home.

Make it safe from risks or have

another place to retreat to like a

campervan or a friend’s home.

Power is essential for cooking,

communications and light. Have

a back-up alternative if electricity

should fail, like gas or wood burner

for cooking and heating, solar

panel or generator or batteries for

radios, phones, fridges, lights and

battery charging, and candles and

matches for light. Basic skills like

first aid, gardening, cooking, sewing

and building, often come in

handy in emergencies.

Always have some savings “for

the rainy day”, and note that cash

can be used without electricity!

We have local response and

resilience teams in our communities

(eg www.redcliffs.org.nz and

www.mpcc.org.nz) which can

provide extensive details of being

prepared for emergencies; getting

your whānau/ family/household to

safety; how to help others in your

neighbourhood and community;

what to keep in your emergency

kit; and information on who to

contact in an emergency. If you,

or your family have a disability or

special requirement visit https://

getthru.govt.nz

Check them out now . . . before

there’s an emergency.

Our pledge on resilience for 2020

is … “get familiar with your local

resilience plans.”

Pupils from Diamond

Harbour School/Te Kura

o Te Waipapa made their

whanau proud as they

performed on stage at

Horncastle Arena. The

polished performance was

Smiths City moving with the times

• By Bea Gooding

SMITHS CITY has officially

settled into a new home after

more than 100 years serving

Cantabrians from its former

central city location.

The iconic furniture and appliance

retailer opened its new

flagship store in The Colombo,

Sydenham, last week, a site

previously occupied by Spotlight

until last year.

It also rebranded with a new

logo to reflect the beginning of a

new era.

Chief executive Tony Allison

was excited with the launch and

said the relocation to Sydenham

was for a more “local approach,”

and to be in the heart of a community,

rather than the central

business district.

Decisions behind the move

were a combination of the store’s

ownership change earlier this

year and the expiry of their former

Colombo St store’s lease in

the coming months.

It was now owned by Colin

Neal, of Polar Capital.

“It’s a great opportunity. We’ve

been in big cities, but we moved

to feel more local and to get

amongst the suburb which is

more like us going forward,” said

Allison.

“The retail experience has

also been lifted. The look, the

NEW ERA: Smiths City chief executive Tony Allison at the new flagship store in The

Colombo.

textures, the colours – everything’s

a lot more vibrant now, I

believe.”

Shoppers can expect a modern

and inviting atmosphere, new

fixtures, an updated product

range and interactive events.

The new premises is nearly

half the size of the former site,

downsizing from 6600 sq m to

3233 sq m.

A “smile” was embedded in its

new logo to celebrate what it is

to be Kiwi – “warm, straight up,

and honest,” – while delivering

its services with a “cheeky” grin.

New beginnings meant new

approaches to how services were

delivered.

“In retail, everyone looks

over their shoulder to see what

everyone else is doing, they go –

how do we outcompete them?”

he said.

“We want to do the opposite,

when everyone else is zigging,

we want to zag. We want to be

honest, Kiwi retailers, with good

service, that know our products

and tell you honestly what the

[product] is going to do.

“We don’t want to bamboozle

customers with buzzwords and

specs to try and get the sale, we

want to do the right thing by the

customer.”

Allison was concerned about

the future in spite of the new

store.

“If you don’t have concerns at

this time with what’s going on,

you’re probably not thinking

hard enough,” he said.

“We’ve got to be mindful

of what’s happening with the

economy and be prepared.”

LITTLE BLUE penguins

Not that you are likely

to spot them easily as they

only come on shore after

dark and leave again before

daylight. They will spend

the day fishing and have

been spotted as far as

20km offshore to do so.

At the end of the day,

they gather in groups (or

rafts) waiting for darkness

before quickly making

their way to their nests.

These can be in burrows,

under dense vegetation or

between rocks but some

of you living near the

shoreline may have been

lucky enough to spot a nest

underneath your house,

garage or even in your

woodpile.

Nesting begins in July

and one to two eggs are

tended to by both parents

who will turns-about keep

eggs and chicks safe and

warm for a day while the

other will go out fishing.

Eggs are laid between

July and mid-November

and occasionally a pair will

produce a second clutch

in one season. Would it

not be a shame if we lose

our last few remaining

breeding pairs around the

Wine

Port is complex on the palate

• By Mark Henderson

PORT IS a fortified wine from

the Douro Valley in northern

Portugal.

Its history dates back more than

300 years to the wars between the

English and the French, which

curtailed the supply of wine from

France.

Enterprising English merchants

began looking further afield and

began shipping the dark and powerful

wines from Portugal.

To maintain the wine’s freshness

and stability on the journey

to England, brandy spirit was

added to the barrels of wine - its

higher alcohol affording greater

protection against spoilage.

At some point, brandy spirit

was added to the still fermenting

wine, and port was born.

The grape must (the mix of

grape juice and grape skin) is run

into fermentation vessels, with

fermentation allowed to proceed

for barely a couple of days.

The addition of neutral spirit

then kills the yeast, arresting fermentation

and thus retaining the

natural grape sugars in the wine,

while also extracting colour and

flavour from the skins.

In the final wine, spirit makes

up roughly 20 per cent of the volume,

leading to an alcohol level

ranging from 18-20 per cent.

Tawny ports take their name

from the colour of the wine,

resulting from ageing and controlled

oxidation of the wine.

Unlike the boldly fruit-driven

Ruby, LBV and Vintage styles,

Tawny styles offer mellow, nutty,

“rancio” characters, classically

paired with nuts and blue cheese,

or contemplatively sipped by

themselves.

Burmester Jockey Club

Tawny Reserve Port

Price: $46-$47

Rating: Very good to excellent

Caramel/butterscotch, raisins,

spices/clove, walnut with a

sherry-like hint.

This offers a sweet golden

syrup-like character with toffee

apple and creme brulee “burnt

sugar” echoing on the palate.

The overt sweetness pares back

with aeration, while crispness

grows, bringing this into a nice

place.

Shows more aged tawny characters

than fruit.

Taylors Fine Tawny Port

Price: $37-$39

Rating: Very good

Bonfire smoke, charry notes,

burnt toffee, boot polish, spiced

fruit. Creamy and viscous,

mouthfilling, there’s sweetness

here, yet a tangy undercurrent,

too.

As it opens up, there’s stewed

plums, berryfruit and sultanas,

flowing to a smoke and walnut

accented close.

I may be curmudgeonly on my

rating, but I find the burnt/charry

elements dominating.

www.taylor.pt

Fonseca Tawny Port

Price: $37-$39

Rating: Excellent to outstanding

Subtle yet attractively expressed

nose with toffee, walnuts,

spices and fruit cake, a little wood

smoke with time. Sweetness

initially, but drier overall with

freshness and crispness driving

the palate adding nuts, spices and

dried fruits.

There’s excellent complexity

here with time adding a rancio

nuance. Nicely balanced, rich,

mouthfilling and full of appeal.

Niepoort Tawny Port

adding treacle, orange oil and

Tasty Bites

Stuffed spuds make a tasty change

THE POTATO really is a

versatile vegetable. It can be

mashed, chipped, scalloped, and

boiled, or more, and it makes an

excellent shell in which to bake

a tasty filling to create stuffed

spuddies.

You can pre-cook the potatoes

in the oven; they will take an

hour or so depending on the size.

Be sure to prick them with a fork

or the tip of a knife first as they

can — and do on occasion —

explode and make an awful mess.

If you want to speed it up a

bit, place the well scrubbed and

pricked potatoes in the microwave

until they start to feel soft.

Four fist-sized potatoes will take

at least 10min.

Then just pop them in a preheated

oven for 10min or so to

crisp up the skin. It is also wise to

scoop out the flesh while they are

still warm.

Each of the following recipes

will fill four fist-sized potatoes.

Ham, Cheese and Corn-

Filled Potatoes

Ingredients

4 potatoes, cooked

½ onion

25g butter

200g of canned creamed corn

½ cup frozen peas

2 big tablespoons sour cream

80g tasty cheese plus extra to

grate over the top

100g diced ham

Directions

Melt the butter in a frying pan

and add the finely diced onion.

Cook until soft.

Slice a side off the cooked

potato and scoop the middle into

a large mixing bowl, being careful

not to break the skin. Cut the

potato flesh roughly with a knife

so that it is in smallish chunks.

Thaw the peas in the microwave

and add to the potato filling

along with the cooked onion,

creamed corn, sour cream, grated

cheese and ham. Mix thoroughly

but gently so that you don’t mash

it all up. Season well with salt and

pepper.

Pile the filling ingredients back

into the waiting skins. You will

have loads of filling so pile it high

and then top with a little extra

grated cheese.

Place in a 200 deg C oven for

15min to warm through.

Cheese and Onion Souffle

Potatoes

Adding beaten egg whites to

the filling makes for a lighter

filling. Be sure to eat them immediately

upon removing from the

oven.

Ingredients

4 potatoes, cooked

50g butter

1 large onion

3 tblsps cream or milk

50g parmesan cheese plus extra

to sprinkle on top

2 eggs

salt and pepper

a small handful of finely

chopped parsley

Directions

Cut the onion into a fairly

small dice and place in a pot

with the butter. Let them cook

together gently until the onion is

really soft but not coloured. This

will take 10-15min.

Cut the top off the potatoes

and scoop the middles into a

large bowl. Mash with a fork

until smooth and add the cooked

onion, cream or milk, grated parmesan,

chopped parsley. Season

generously with salt and pepper.

Mix well.

Separate the eggs and mix the

yolks into the potato mixture.

Whisk the whites to firm peaks

and fold into the potato using a

metal spoon.

Spoon the filling back into the

skins and top with the extra parmesan

cheese. Bake at 200 deg C

for 20min.

Kumara with Bacon and

Orange Filling

Ingredients

4 large kumara

100g bacon

1 orange

2 tblsp cràeme fraiche

salt and pepper

grated cheese to sprinkle on

top

Directions

Scrub the kumara and bake

until soft. As with the potatoes

you can speed this up by placing

them in the microwave to give

them a head start.

When they are cool enough to

handle, slice of a side and scoop

the middle into a mixing bowl.

Chop roughly. Fry the slices of

bacon until they are crispy and

chop finely.

Finely grate the orange rind

and squeeze the juice out of half

of it. Add to the chopped kumara

along with the bacon, sour cream

and some salt and pepper.

Mix together and pile into the

skins. Top with the grated cheese

and warm through for about

15min in an oven that has been

preheated to 180 deg C.

Jules has been a part of Canterbury’s

jewellery industry for over 40 years,

with latter years spent running his own

business. During this time he has earned

a strong reputation for his beautiful

creations and confident ability to repair,

alter and remodel any existing jewellery.

It’s this success in business and his

wealth of knowledge that makes

Jules the perfect person to train

and guide an upcoming hair

cutting entrepreneur.

“Vasa is a great barber. He’s

cut my hair. I’m pleased I am

able to offer him space in the

store to collaborate and learn

the in’s and out’s of running

a business as well as offering

haircuts to the locals of

Lyttelton,” said Jules.

Prior to settling in

Christchurch, Vasa ‘BOSS

Barber’ Toleafoa had been

barbering in Auckland for two years and

says he is immensely grateful to have an

opportunity to learn how to run his own

business with someone as experienced as

Jules.

“To start I will be here every

Wednesday from 10am to 5pm,” said

Vasa. “I love cutting hair and love to see a

client’s first reaction to their new look.”

But especially for Christmas, Jules

has an order of 1 carat diamonds

“The 1ct stones will be available to

purchase on their own, or I can make up

a simple setting for Christmas morning,”

said Jules. “The recipient can then have it

Tauranga, has had ten-years of

comparative normality to attract

both people, businesses and

investment. Meanwhile,

Christchurch has been

rebuilding, adapting and

repositioning, with the future

firmly in mind.

ChristchurchNZ does this by

letting business decision makers

located in New Zealand and

around the world in on

Otautahi’s best kept secret

– the unique local business

environment that enables

growth and wellbeing

for companies and employees.

I believe strongly that

Christchurch has a lot to offer.

Originally from the UK, I moved

to Christchurch from Auckland

because of my wife’s work with

the Christchurch Symphony

Orchestra. The lifestyle benefits

and the ability to buy our own

home were compelling and echo

the stories we hear from many

young professionals, who make

the move.

The future looks bright for

business in Christchurch and

while for obvious reasons 2020

wasn’t the jumpstart to a new

decade we had hoped for, we

remain well positioned to

promote our competitive

advantages. The diversity of

Canterbury’s economy has

provided resilience and our

community support networks

are strong.

Our competition is strong too

and the Golden Triangle of

Auckland, Hamilton, and

What does

Christchurch offer?

Resilience, diversity,

connectivity, talent and a strong

innovation ecosystem.

These values are what we

promote through our storytelling

about this city and through the

work we prioritise. For example,

earlier this year we strengthened

that innovation ecosystem

through a significant investment

into start-up and scale-up

business incubation programmes

that will create dozens of

businesses and high value jobs.

We are resilient

This city and its people have been

through several life changing

events. Businesses here know

how to operate under stressful

conditions. People were brought

together under extraordinary

circumstances and had to help

one another. Our economic

diversity and culture of

acceptance has provided space

for everyone to succeed.

There are few cities globally that

can offer this economic and

social resilience. COVID-19 has

given New Zealand a global

platform that we must capitalise

on to demonstrate this resilience

to adversity.

As New Zealand’s newest city, Christchurch is a place

where innovation is encouraged and problem solving

seems to be in the blood.

‘Selling’ Christchurch’s lifestyle isn’t a tough gig. This city has a lot to offer. But the real

work is illustrating the city’s best kept secret – the opportunity for a business to grow.

Our connectivity and the

connections forged through

adversity also makes

Christchurch an easy place to do

business. We often talk about

ease of doing business in a

logistical sense – an international

airport and port do have appeal,

including significantly less traffic

than the other major centres.

I firmly believe that these values

alone place Christchurch on an

even playing field with

other cities.

But there’s more

Young professionals can pay 50

per cent less for their home than

if they lived in Auckland. Salary

bands can be 5 to 10 per cent less

for most professions or are

equivalent if you are a doctor,

teacher or physio.

These cost efficiencies are

applicable to businesses too –

commercial and industrial

property generally cost less here.

We use this data to open

conversations with influential

decision makers but it’s the

workforce that will be real

deciding factor.

Cost efficiencies will never be

reason enough for a business to

move – Amazon selected Seattle

because of the links with the

University of Washington.

We foster world class talent

We work with our tertiaries to

ensure our graduates can access

high-value jobs and for our

businesses to have access to

world-class talent. Our four

tertiaries are outstanding and

create real opportunity for

businesses moving here to tap

into their knowledge economy.

Having those four tertiaries

already hugely benefits the

city’s start-up ecosystem.

Christchurch is a place where

innovation is encouraged and

problem solving seems to be in

the blood. A history of resilience

has created problem solvers.

As mentioned above

ChristchurchNZ has invested

in the Te Ōhaka and ThincLab

incubator programmes to

facilitate job creation. Plus

there’s the incredible work of

EPIC, Saltworks, Webtools and

many specialist industry-bodies

that really support and

drive innovation.

We are future focused

Canterbury has Supernodes –

these industry clusters possess

strong global growth opportunity

matched with existing regional

strengths and capabilities.

Our Supernodes are health tech,

aerospace and future transport,

food fibre and agritech, and

hi-tech solutions. Projects such

as the Health Tech challenge

facilitate an innovative mindset

among our population, our

education sector and our

industries, aligning talent and

education goals. They also

gain national and international

attention which aids our

business attraction work.

There are significant

opportunities that this city must

now embrace. ChristchurchNZ

is committed to bringing

business to our region that will

provide sustainable high value

jobs and make our home even

more attractive. I hope you’ll

help me tell our great City story

to the world.

Business Attraction Manager

Birds of Aotearoa New Zealand

- Collective Nouns

by Melissa Boardman

A beautifully illustrated book featuring New

Zealand Aotearoa’s native birds, each with

its very own collective noun.

A whistling of whio? A loot of weka? A

tussock of takahe?

This is a book for children, adults and birdlovers

alike. These collective nouns reveal

something about the character of our birds, so we can

get to know them better. Birds of Aotearoa New Zealand:

Collective Nouns also contains information on how our

birds live, so we can better help them.

New Zealanders: The Field Guide

by Tom Sainsbury

A guide to the weird and wonderful inhabitants of New Zealand, and

the places you’ll find them.

After years of mimicking celebrities and Kiwi stereotypes on social

media, comedian Tom Sainsbury has compiled all his favourite

character types into a book. His array of Kiwi heroes includes the

useless Farmhand who is forever jack-knifing the trailer, the Martyr

Mother who constantly guilt-trips her children, and the Officious New

Zealander who loves narking on his office co-workers for the mildest

of misdemeanours. All these descriptions are lovingly collated into a

concise, easy-to-use field guide that’ll give you an in-depth insight

into the people of Aotearoa.

BMW M235i – it’s all in the name

THE LENGTHY name lends

itself to all manner of vehicle

types.

The car I’m referring to is

BMW’s M235i xDrive Gran

Coupe, also described by BMW

as a fastback sedan.

That’s quite a mixture, so I’ll refer

to it simply as the M235i, and

in reality it does cover all those

bases, its compact four-door

sedan concept does have coupetype

styling.

What’s more, because it carries

an M badge it is a performance

car which squarely sits in the

sport sedan category, and you’d

expect nothing less from BMW,

the M235i is a car which tugs

at the senses, oozing style with

its low, sleek shape, and it has

performance to envy through a

225kW engine.

The M235i’s design is curvy yet

aggressive, it has a shape which

lures comment and desire, yet it

also has practicality which doesn’t

always present itself with coupe

designs. The latter is particularly

noteworthy, there is easy entry

and egress up front, the doors

aren’t overly wide so they aren’t a

nuisance in close confines, while

there’s also the benefit of reasonable

leg room for those who are

confined to the rear seats. Also, it

EXTREME:

The M235i’s

coupe-type

design

incorporates

a fastback

rear.

must be said that the boot space

is cavernous, it runs deep to the

rear seats and is easy to load.

At the other end sits a heavily

boosted turbocharged fourcylinder

engine. Herein, lies a

bit of a surprise, in contrast to

BMW’s decades of longitudinal

engineering preference, it sits

transversely in the engine bay.

Drive is effectively channelled

through to the front-wheels, until

xDrive automatically engages

drive rearwards when slipping up

front is detected.

Not only is the engine powerful

up the top end, there is also a

hefty 450Nm of torque to experience,

the combination results in a

solid punch when the accelerator

is given some weight, there is

an exhaust bark and throb that

sounds delightful, especially in

sport mode where the decibels

are increased markedly.

The M235i is fast for a 2-litre

car. It will scorch to 100km/h

from a standstill in 4.8sec, and

will lunge through an 80km/h to

120km/h overtaking manoeuvre

in 4sec thanks to a strong turbo

surge and high mid-range torque

output.

The gearbox is a traditional

eight-speed automatic and it can

be manipulated through steering

BMW M235I: Vivid performance from turbocharged 2-litre engine.

wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Between the engine and transmission

the M235i stands out for

solid performance through the

rev band and, of course, there’s

always a gear on hand, there’s

never a feeling that the transmission

is not in a suitable ratio. That

is the benefit eight-speeders offer,

the gaps between ratios are close

allowing the engine to work in its

optimum range.

Of course, the M235i doesn’t

need to be driven aggressively, but

when it is it feels strong, akin to

the performance aspect of BMW.

However, at city speeds it is docile

and feeds power gently so that

stop-start traffic is relaxing.

• Price – BMW M235i

xDrive Gran Coupe,

$91,400

• Dimensions – Length,

4526mm; width,

1900mm; height,

1420mm

• Configuration – Fourcylinder,

four-wheeldrive,

1998cc, 225kW,

450Nm, eight-speed

automatic

• Performance –

0-100km/h, 4.8sec

• Fuel usage – 7.6l/100km

It is also relatively fuel efficient

given there is a lot of excitement

under the bonnet. According to

BMW the M235i can achieve a

combined cycle rating of 7.6-litres

per 100km. My time with the test

car resulted in a 9.4l/100km average

which wasn’t that far distant,

along with a 5.2l/100km highway

cruise figure with the engine

turning over very relaxed at just

1750rpm at 100km/h.

Even though the M235i is effectively

front-wheel-drive it has

natural handling along with steering

that is weighted perfectly to

pick up the feel of what the tyres

are doing in relation to the road

surface. Every nuance is delivered

back to the driver so that he or

she understands the handling

characteristics and how the car is

behaving.

BMW is strong on safety, the

electronic devices which control

traction are there so that the entire

car stays stable under power.

However, the chassis is so advanced

that the car doesn’t rely on

the safety devices, it can be driven

hard yet grip is rarely challenged.

The low profile Bridgestone

Potenza tyres (235/35 x 19in)

have a solid tenure with the road

and, what’s more, they are quiet

and have a remarkable amount of

absorption through the narrow

sidewalls so that ride comfort isn’t

overly compromised.

The spring and damper rates

within the fully independent

front-strut/rear multiple link

set-up default to a comfort setting

but are adjustable to the driver’s

command through a series on

in-cabin push-buttons.

The M235i is a true driver’s car

and rewards with its lithe and

nimble nature and don’t forget it

has the glitz to go with the glamour,

it has all the major specification

ingredients in the first

instance, along with an extensive

option list.

At $91,400 it does carry a

premium price, but what that

doesn’t take into account is that

along with its title it is more than

one car, every drive is a rewarding

experience, and no matter

whether you drive it soft or hard,

it always feels so good to be in.

early age. With me, you will get genuine and honest advice on the value

of your collections and holdings.
