Seen the vid on this forum (different section) before and i must say this car looks like its going to be a blast to drive. The exterior at the moment isn't doing a thing for me, but when i get the chance to see it in person i might like it more.

As for cannabilising BMW's own sales, i don't think so. There will be SOME people who go oh wait the 135 is the closest thing to M-performance and is cheaper then 335 i might as well buy the 135(these are people who are after performance). I think there will be a majority of people in the mindset of myself who say to themselves that the 335 looks more refined, sporty and elegant so i would rather purchase the 335 over the 135. The 135 really does target the young mainly from ages 18-25, the segment in the market where VW R32, 350Z's, EVO's and S2000 dominate.
