If that doesn't work, use the search box in the upper right and type 135i. You should see the link to the video.

Nice. Sounds like it will be a great tuner, starting with an lsd.

Sounds like he just drove an escort. Not that glowing of a review. Like we had a discussion elsewhere, just a cramped 3-series that doesn't perform any better and looks like ass.

so I guess that means the 335i is a bloated more expensive 135i. looks just about the same as the 135i with both cars having those slanted womanly headlights. cant hate one wothout hating the other.

If you guys think this



And this



Look the same, I won't argue. I think the concept is a good idea. Just not excited about execution. I'd be ecstatic to have the chance to spend only $35K and get better performance than my 335i. I just don't like the looks. I hope to see one in person, maybe I'll change my mind. Also, can they get a dual exhaust for the 135i?

The proportions of the 335 are so much more appealing to the eye, and I personally think the lines are definetly sexier on the larger car.

I didn't say they looked the same, but there are more similarities than differences.

Looks to be a cool car for sure, but hardly the 335 or M3 killer that was hyped.

What's the 0-60 time and difference between the 135 and 335? Just guessing from the weight, the 135 should be about 0.5 sec quicker, but it may depend on the gear ratios.

NFW. My money is on it being listed as 5.1 MT / 5.3 AT 0-60 (compared to the 335i listing of 5.3 MT / 5.5 AT 0-60).

Real world, I bet it is slightly faster b/c of the weight, but there will be a thousand posts here about how someone tested their 335i against another's 135i, and the cars were the same.

Whatever. My $$ is that it will be about the same as the 335i. 135tii, or whatever it is called, I bet will be noticeably quicker, or they would not have made it.

I think stock the 135i will be just as fast as my Z4M. Once its chipped it will pull. But time will tell. I take delivery in March

Come on BK, you know the factory 0-60 numbers are way underrated . The e9X 335i's get to 60 (both transmissions) in about 4.9-5.1s. I'm thinking consistent high 4's to 60 for the 135i, regardless of the transmission.

I know, I was just saying my guess for what BMW will say. I bet they say 0.2 secs faster. Just a guess. In the real world, I bet everyone finds there is no noticeable difference and that "driver's race" will never be a more appropriate description. Also, I bet the 135Tii will be badass and noticeably faster than the 135i or 335i.
