The standard observation in German magazines and websites would be that the Fleischmann coaches sit much too high. They do not look good if coupled to Minitrix or Arnold coaches, but look OK in rakes from the same manufacturer. When comparing m series coaches, bear in mind that window width varies between (I think) 800mm and, iirc, 1200mm depending on the batch or diagram (Bm234, 235, 238, etc). The 1zu160 website has some good comparison photos. The main complaint seems to be the alignment of the roof vents rather than the window widths for a given prototype.

Agreed. Fleischmann N gauge bogie coaches definitely sit too high, always have done

I have always assumed this was to enable them to negotiate the tight radius curves and pointwork of their own Piccolo track without embarrassment!

DM Toys currently have a number of different Bm coaches listed (https://www.en.dm-toys.de/liste/search/bm2.html) - including Bm 233, 234, 238, if any of those would be suitable?
