You can't judge a car just for it's acceleration time
Fair enough. I wouldn't mind an RS3, if it is anything like the rs4, damn I loved that car. Similarly, I love the m3, this m135 can surely be a little speed demon around town.

I see this car and it reminds me of all those 16 years olds being reckless with GTi's. LOL but its a really cool car.

The RS3 was what everybody expected another "Average" Audi.
Despite the 1M's shortcomings in space and flexibility. It still ran rings around the RS3 because as a car the 1M had a lot of driver communication.
The Audi just went faster which did not make it the better car.

I wish my M3 had 17" brakes.

Garage List
Everyone going on only about 0-60 or 0-100 times is missing the point that this is a pig-heavy car. I'm selling my 135i for a ClioSport that weighs 1,230 kg's. Yeah it won't be as fast or have the same torque but is more agile stock than anything weighing in over 1,500 kg's (1,550kg's for N54). Coming from the MK5 GTI this was the first thing I noticed about the car. Excellent handling due to RWD for sure, but it felt like it was ploughing along, rather than dancing. Shame BMW didn't get this car down in weight or I'd pick one up in a few years after depreciation has done its worst.

So reading the "Does the position of the driving experience switch have any other effect?" paragraph, it suggests that switching from Comfort to Sport/Sport+ affects the sound of the exhaust note. Can someone with an M135i confirm this? Is it noticeable? Maybe i misinterpreted the comment.

I pick my M135i up from Cheltenham on Tuesday :-) The next 48 hours are going to go slowly knowing my luck! Very excited though!

I will, but probably be the weekend. I think I have read every review, watched every video and now getting restless. Will be sad to see my E92 325 coupe go, but hey, looks like a good car to down size to I'm sure i'll find out about the exhaust note being different when you switch on Tuesday, but someone might add fuel to my excitement
