I like it a lot! It has definitely grown on me. It is a BEAST!!! Definitely an upgrade from an E46 in my opinion; even if it is only a slight one.

I am in love with that car. I drove one once, and I am a believer.

too small for me
if i have $40k to blow on a track car, that would be it....... but there is no reason at all why i wouldn't spend the extra $5k and get the 335

when they tested the 135 and 335 around the track together, the 135 was quicker by 0.2 sec.... (forgot which vid)

ya....... i'll stick with the 335 in that matter

If it was the lower content, lighter, cheaper car we thought it was going to be, then heck yes. But it's almost as heavy as the E90/E92, and almost as expensive.

Small car + powerfull engine = fun car to drive

I test drove one the other day, and that little car really moves. I really liked it. I say go for it.

Thers more to it than that. But the 135i is a bit too expensive for a 1 series. I dont know about the coupe body style either. Hows the trunk space in the coupe? in the hatch ive got is not spectacular.

Well, I agree it is pricey and you might be able to get into an M with that money, but for someone looking to get into something new I would still go for it. The choice also depends on your situation I guess, (ex: Kids, Family) in that case maybe the 335i would be better . . .

As for the styling, I like it, I think it fits the car well IMO

Sorry, I didnt even think to open the trunk, I was at the dealership and I had the chance to drive and I just jumped in and drove it for like 20 mins. . . . .

Some of you guys think it's a mini car. It's just a whisker smaller than your E46 and just about as heavy.
