I :love: my E90

I just got back from test driving a 2010 135i 6MT (duh) m-sport in lemans blue. It was a nice car, and was plenty fast. But...

It didn't produce the ear the ear grin that my e90 gave me when I first test drove it back in early 08. I've had that car for almost 5 years now, and it just "fits", kind of like an old worn-in glove. I've decided to keep my e90, with the NA engine, for quite awhile. Sure, it's not as fast, but it's plenty quick, and it's mine. The E90 feels really special, and I am happy.

I'm sure if I was in another type of car the story would be different, but it's hard competing with such a good car as the e90.

Did you drive the 6MT or auto? 6MT would make a big different on 135i.

E90 FTW! I feel for you. But a ///M I would pick over mine anyday. I have an E36 M3 and thats so much fun to drive. I drove E46 M3s and they are nice but nothing like the E36 Ms. E90/E92 with their V8s hands down are pure sex.

I've driven both before and they both seemed the same as for speed wise. You can never compare an auto and a manual hands down a manual will drive so much better.

Sounds like you're a diehard MT driver How are you liking the AWD compared to the RWD 135?

wait till the f30/f32 lean around a few months, then let the e92/e90 335s drop in price and test drive those
