did they pay Audi for use of silver side mirrors on the M trim

I can't stand the new Nav screen locations on the 3 and 1 series, what were they thinking? I love it in our X3, built into the dash like it belongs there, not just stuck on top of everything. I am sure there are a decent amount of people that don't get Nav to save on cost but how many people buy $40K+ cars and don't get nav when most $20K cars have it now... makes the interior look cheap if you don't have it. If the screen was a pop up I would understand the placement of it, but its fixed!

does BMW just pull these numbers out of a hat?
first of all, the weight difference is not that much at all - max 250 lbs. the f20/21 is heavier than everybody thinks.

second of all, the M135 will be available with xdrive and that will launch 0-60 in about 4.6s, gear ratios are the same. It's just a traction issue to launch that gives xdrive the advantage. At speed an RWD M135 will blow by a 335xi.

I just ordered an M/// shower curtain. I figured why not since they are sticking an M on everything!

The screen is even fixed in the same location even when you don't order navigation, since it used for all the other iDrive stuff. Maybe the idea is that it is easy to see without taking your eyes too far off the road.

That's the whole point, and it works very well. BMW has always made well thought cockpits with perfect ergonomics (allthough not so much during the Bangle periode). The angled center console is one example.

Now a 18 year old can park next to your M6 convertible and say he has a M car too. Fuc?ing idiots.
So you feel the M6 convertible is closer to the original ///M-spirit than the M135i? I am not so sure. When it comes to diluting the M-branding, The X5M and X6M must be the worst examples, I guess, along with the M550xd. The M used to be the Motorsport letter, but now I guess it means Marketing.

Back in the days of the E28 M5, there was also an M535i, so this is not really a new thing.

For what?

F2x M135i Hatch has, as every F2x, 6 speed manual or 8-speed sport automatic gearbox. No doubleclutch available of any kind. The 4wd version comes with 8-speed sport auto by default, manual not available with xdrive.

Yep, same here. But no more DCT in the F20. At least not for now. But the new 8-speed sport auto is quite awesome and in many tests and reviews most, or at least many testers say its at least as good and fast as VWs DCT, or even better. So I guess they just don't see a reason to put a hardcore-dct into a car thats eventually just not a proper M-car. In the old 135 the 6-speed autobox was not all bad either, but far from the new 8-speed.

I would LOVE to know why BMW thinks it wouldn't be able to move a bunch of these in the US? Or is it that they don't want to kill 3 and future 2 series sales? This car is soooo cool.

Yes, that's a bit of a pity for you guys. But in the US you have so many wonderful cars that aren't available over here in europe! Think of all those cool muscle and pony cars! The latest Dodge challenger- Ford Mustang - Chevy Camaro! Even if you do find one here, it's near impossible to pay taxes or fuel for it..
So don't be jealous, let us have at least 1 cool car you guys don't have

So, do you think the 116i is not a good option? Im thinking about it and the 118i, sometimes I think the first one is enough for me. But reading messages like yours, Im in doubt. The 116i, reaches 100Km/h in 8,5 secs...What I think is a really good mark, if you are not Fernando Alonso. Tell me your impressions please. Thank you!!

Talking F21 On its way...

This car is amazing (following a test drive!), great price, fantastic performance, super slick auto gear box and an exhaust note that cannot be described and that no internet sound clip does justice...in sport mode the way is 'dumps' the exhaust at point of gear change qualifies it as the 'ultimate driving machine' in itself for me.

Sadly, I couldn't justify the expected fuel cost as I cover 30,000 miles a year.

I currently drive the e90 320d M Sport Edition and after 92000 faithful miles, i'm looking forward to picking up my brand new F21 120d M Sport on 7th Feb.

As seems tradition on this forum, I have spec'd the following:

Black Sapphire
Anthracite Hexagon Cloth/Alcantara interior
Adaptive Xenon Headlights (Auto-Headlights)
High Beam Assist
Rain sensitive wipers
Front & Rear parking sensors
Extended lighting Package
Servotronic Steering

Feel free to comment; i'm told these headlights are amazing so any views on that would be appreciated...
