335i vs 135i Photos Comparison

For some reason, I'm starting to like the 135 more than the 3-series. It seems to have a classier design, showing a little bit of old school, but I might be wrong.

135 v 335i comparison

If the 135i looks anything like the press release photos, I'm in. I like the lip, if you will, on the trunk and the overall line... Side profile is sexeh, interior looks good and it looks like I'll give it a shot when my lease is up. The N54 has already proven itself (at least with me) to be an extremely good motor in terms of gas/fuel economy. If I am seeing 19s in the city with 3,500lb, I wonder what I'll be seeing with 3,100lb. I'll take it in Montego Blue with Black Leather...

I still favor the looks of the 3er over the 1er. Especially in the rear, but that doesn't take away from the fact that I believe the car is well designed and will sell well if priced accordingly. I would love to see what the prices for this thing are going to be reasonably loaded w/ an M package.

135i gets the MSport package standard so it looks more aggressive. If we could get MSport 3 series here is the US the differences would not be as drastic IMHO.

I really do like the 135i though. Its on the short list for my next car. As is the 335i.

Should be a fun car even though the front looks like a smiling cat to me.

for the front -- all they need a simple light shape redesign to make it better...
The rear looks too Korean-ish in my mind...

The 3 coupes is beatuifull but the new one also looks very very good IMO. It is a totally different car. People looking at a 335i will not really even care about the 135 IMO using what I have seen from the BMW customers in the past. People in the 135i want the car because its truly a performance coupe (at least this is the way BMW is having us market the car) where the 335i is a more or a GT than the 135i. Both are great cars and there is no reason if you have a 3 to be pissed they came out with a 135i. Enjoy what you have and realize that you did not buy the car for the engine only. The 3 is going to be more upscale than the 1 even though you can get almost the same options. Also the 1 will be a SMALL car so people looking at a 3 may not want a car as small as a 1. This car is great for all of because it shows BMW is trying new ideas and giving usone more great BMW to think about when we get a new car.

Totally someone scared the shit outta that thing it's all

Up to this point i though tthe 135 was pretty sleek... Now, every time I see it I'm going to think "BOO"!

I dunno, I'm still waiting to judge for myself when I see it in person, but it's not overly endearing...

3/4s View, The 135 looks much better here, while the 335 starts to look like a Pontiac GTO in some creepy way...

The 135 is kinda looking like an X3 and a Z4 had some screwed up Hillbilly incest loving... And the 135 is their Mildly retarded offspring.

Get in a drop top and I see some of these lines. Not knocking the car. The design is just hard to swallow.

I think it looks great. I would probably cancel my 335 order if I didn't need to constantly haul people around in my back seat.

not feeling the 1 series at all. It just doesn't look right compared to the sleek design & curves of the 3 series & above.

I think the 3 series is def a better looking car, but I do agree the 1-series has some throw in its styling, the front reminds me of an e30. However, the back and side profile of the 1 series are not to my liking.
