I've been looking at some other spyshots of the M135i and I saw that the rear bumper isn't the same. Is it because that one is a 3-door version and the other is a 5-door? Or is there another reason? I like the one with the bumper in body color and not in black like its some cheap plastic.

The white one has just a standard F20 bumper. It's not wearing the M Sport kit, as seen on the blue 1 series. Any M135i will likely wear the M Sport aerodynamic package or some special aero kit of its own.

Yes, it makes sence. But why is the front bumper on the white one in M-sport (seen on other spy photos), if the rear bumper isn't?

Spotted a 3 door on a photo shoot in CT today in same colour as this car but it had 5 spoke M style wheels, unfortunately couldnt get camera on phone activated before they got it back into truck.

Yes that is correct the media shoot for the 1er 3dr and M135i is taking place in Cape Town and surrounding coastal South Africa . With the M135i making good use of those views and the cliff lined roads and surround coast to show its performance.

Benny@ Bimmertoday.de has scooped the BMW M135i in Valencia Orange.

M135i revealed!

The M135i will join the new BMW M Performance cars family and be sold along the M550d, X5 M50d and X6 M50d models. The rear-wheel drive and gasoline-powered M135i will be offered in the fall in both three and five door configuration.

Before the year-end, a BMW M135i xDrive will be launched as well.

It is strange though that the X5/X6 hold the 35i designation from the 1/3/5 ranges but the 40d (instead of 35d) from the 6/7 ranges.
