For those who aren't familiar with the M135i specs: http://f20.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=690505

So lovely...for a car with the steering on the wrong side. :-)

Congrats!

Why do brands purposely make certain cars they sell look goofy?

This things looks too goofy to fit in the hot hatch category.

I have this funny feeling that the only way to get a 6 in the 235i when it gets to the states will be as an M235i.

Looking GOOD! LOVE that MCB color.


Q: Are your Michelin's RFT (RDC) or regular tires? I understand that these M135i's do not get RFT tires. ?

also, what does this car weigh?

Very nice, congratulations. I wish the 135i m-sport or 135is had the same front bumper. It annoys me that its the same bumper on all 135's.

Nice one m8, i'm just amazed by the bang for the buck on this car. Nothing compares really. Just crazy, even at stock... Later on with a tune it's just insane

About 1,450kg's (excluding sat nav, sun roof etc) - approx 100kg's less than the 1 series coupe. Hence the 0.2 sec increase (manual) in 0-100 km p/h times, although the M135i has a slight power increase too which helps a little. Definately moving in the right direction.

I was going to suggest a rear wiper delete mod but living in the UK, you need it!
