My former F30 335i was the biggest mistake I ever made...
BMWs current line up is not interesting. No more real drivers cars. OK a M135i will do but the rest sucks. Too heavy, too remote, not involving enough.
Tend to agree with this.
So wished I'd be able to get a 1M.
DCT equipped 135 was still a very acceptable 2nd choice option however, and even at that, I can't see any forthcoming replacement coming from BMW in the near future.
ZF auto option (as opposed to DCT) and electric steering means the M135/M235 is not on my horizon.
M2 might well be, depending on what spec it eventually has, but I suspect by the time that comes out it will be either too expensive for me, or too late.
