Hi Guys, new here well, actually not, been a member for a long time, just haven't posted..... so here's my first.

Sorry BMW, but I'm just feeling this It is no doubt a fabulous car, and will go like hell, but it just doesn't sit right? It's to high, the offset looks way off.... it just doesn't work somehow? I still prefer my 130.....

Hope I don't offend anyone?

Very nice car. I think in a year or so when we see the revised coupe (2 series) in North America this car will turn out to be a fairly accurate preview in terms of drive train, suspension and interior details.

Not liking the placement of the steering wheel controls. Why move the volume to the right side of the wheel?? Keeping it on the left frees my right hand to stay near the gear shift, rest on the arm rest or hold my wife's hand and still control the volume with the left hand.

Also thought the cruise control leaver was perfectly placed. Oh well. Progress?

Sucks to even see this. Why won't BMW make this car availiable in the U.S.? I recently had a newborn, and didn't realize how much the utility of the car sucks until I tried to install a child seat. The additional storage space, and opportunity for more doors would be great.

You have sharp eyes to spot that on the shot if the steering wheel.

I was so excited reading about it. Then saw that it'll be available in all wheel drive!

And then I saw this....

"M135i won't be available in the US"

. Thanks again BMW for making a car I'd buy not come to the states. Just like that X5M diesel... bastards.

god, so many things come to mind when looking at this car... amazing. i'm so pissed right now, i guess we'll get the f31, but there won't be anything performance oriented about it.

cars that start with M in the name, i.e. M550d are considered M Performance, and these have only been non-gasoline in the path

Looks so much better than a regular f20. Sadly we'll never see it. Thanks BMW!

"The F21 M135i will unfortunately not make it to North America". Boooooo

I would buy that in a heart beat! It would be a great DD hatch back.
I would camp at the port in N NJ standing at the dock with a check in hand

The inside looks cheap, no luxury at all. Cute car on the outside tho.
