Having a small 135 2 door (also lighter than the 3's) make sense cuz its cheaper, you don't need all the options in it and it takes most of the same performance parts as the 335's. I also like it a little better than the E92's looks wise, plus not everyone and their neighbors dog has one, its a little more unique to see one fully modded out than an e92.

It's also small enough for me to use as excuse to get a used Grand Cherokee for the winter months/hauling stuff and I won't lie, I liked having 2 cars.
Jumping to the N54. This is what I would do over getting a M3. All you have to do is change a few arms in the suspension, change the shocks, and you have the same suspension as an M3 basically. I like the build list. I think it's more fun to mod a car than just buy it and keep it stock anyways. I'd like to see how much slower a tuned 335 would be then a tuned 135, being about 250lb more weight and all.

335i coupe = 3571 [auto 3582] lbs
335i sedan = 3593 [auto 3605] lbs

135i coupe = 3373 [auto 3384] lbs

so I already said I'd most likely get a sedan 335 if I did... 3593-3373 = 220lbs

so saving 220lbs isn't bad, but for some reason the LET tune on the 135 is making more power than on the 335's so go figure.

not gonna lie, I'd fuckin love an M3... but I think if I was gonna pony up like that for a car I'd rather just get a 911 (dream car) for like $8k-$10k more.
