3-door M135i is cool. Too bad...I would think BMW could sell some of those in the US.

On the 135M looks like the motor is N55 with PPK. Front tires get one size larger at 225, which is good. The 8 speed auto goes in instead of a DCT, which will help a lot on highway fuel efficiency and does not give up much speed. I think we can expect a lot of these items in the US bound coupe and cabriolet reasonably soon.

Please, please, please release an F26 (and bring it out in the states). I would love a 228i Gran Coupe to replace our E46 325i.

All that body kit and it still looks retarded.

The worst headlight design in 20 years, at least.

I hope the 2 series does not look anything like that.

I have to say I do like the look of both cars, but I'm not happy that BMW is entering this small sized market. Pretty soon they'll be like the German Ford, with a car for everyone, a mini van, a pick up truck, an SUV, a family sedan, an economy car, and a sports car etc.

I like it in the 5-dr form in AW.

People drive M3s overseas while we can only afford public transport in my country..

I don't understand why it will not available in the U.S., one of the biggest markets for BMW.

It's so funny that we in Lebanon, get every BMW car before anyone else on the planet gets it, whether it's the new M5, the Z8 back in time, or any other.

the headlights could look better if BMW extend them towards the kidney grills like this :

i don't know if you noticed BMW quotes this M135i automatic faster than the 1M from 0 to 60 :

1M : 0-60 mph ( 0-96 kph ) in 4.9 s
M135i : 0-100 kph in 4.9 s

If I was buying a new 135i today I'd wait for this to come out. The M135i coupe will look amazing. I like what I see so far but I'm still wrapped with how my E82 135i is coming along.

Hands down the ugliest car BMW has ever made. Actually one of the ugliest cars made today by any brand.

This makes the 5GT look like a supermodel.
