2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Been looking forward to getting my 135 and it's finally here. What a great car; amazing engine of course and with better brakes than the new M3. Drove my brothers 09 M3 and this car felt almost as quick. I say felt because now I added the computer upgrade from Vishnu that brings my 135 to 400hp!! This car is now a monster! Of course the materials used in this car are not quite as nice but, for the money you can't go wrong.
Ummm, engine of course. Brakes are great, as mentioned above.
A little too much body roll but can be taken care of in the aftermarket which is coming soon. Oh, and all of you complaining about the room for the rear seats; buy the 335. Look how small the 135 is, if you can squeeze more room out of that frame, I'm sure BMW has a job for you!
