The M135i seems to be a very worthy car to bear the M badge, criticism about brand dilution notwithstanding.

I thought a DCT option was available for the M135 though?
No DCT, 6 speed manual or 8 speed automatic.

A really fast car but... not that fun.
Maybe I should try it with a manual gearbox.

Really? Thicker than the E82? It took me forever to get used to how thick the 1M wheel was. Is this even thicker?

1M/M3 steering wheel is definitely thicker than a M Sport wheel of E82/E9X series. On the other hand, I doubt that a M135i wheel is thicker than 1M wheel, but it may still be thicker than what is needed. Modern times, new fashion!

Really. I mean it.

Back to my car, my E82 M wheel felt thin and most importantly providing feedback...

I guess the loss of feeling is comparable from what I felt jumping from my 325ti to this crappy E82 electric steering.
I miss the good old one every time I drive.
