Good things come in small packages

If you like the 3-series (335) but don't need that much room, get this. There are few on the road, unlike the ubiquitous 3-series, and it's even a little more fun. If money's an object, find one stripped down (sport package w/o leather is all you really need here) and go daddy, go! Handling, steering and acceleration are all top-notch. Only the stereo disappoints...

Nothing can top this car!

by from Marin County, CA on July 29, 2010

Long time BMW owner here - since the late 60's when no one knew what these cars were about. Have since owned a parade of different M cars, i.e, E28, E24, E39, and presently an 2009 E60. This E82 135i ...
Long time BMW owner here - since the late 60's when no one knew what these cars were about. Have since owned a parade of different M cars, i.e, E28, E24, E39, and presently an 2009 E60. This E82 135i with 6 speed has about the same "grunt" as my former 2002 E39 M5, only it corners much better, without as much "plow" as the heavier 5-series. In spirit, this car is similar to my original '73 2002tii (which I still own). It is as close to "The Truth" as one will find in any modern BMW.

I'll have this car forever... and ever, and ever

Some cars you love for a little while. You get it, it's shiny and new, and you love it for awhile and then it just becomes the boring old car that get you from point A to point B. Not mine. I still love mine every single day. Everytime I drive it - I am so happy that I have it. I recently had someone ask me if I wanted an M3. "Would you get one if you could?" This just makes me laugh. I guess I could get one if I wanted it, but my car is perfect for me - so, no. I have not one little desire to give up my car for an M3, or for anything for that matter. I'm that happy with it. Maybe ya gotta drive it to get it. Just floor it onto the freeway one time and let it take off like your own personal jet. It won't leave the ground, but you'll be flying all the same. It handles incredibly. It's kind of super awesome.

Little Bimmer that could

by from Fort Riley,ks on March 5, 2012

I have had the car for over 2 months now and have no regrets! The car handles and performs amazingly plus it gives me all the comforts of 3 series without the weight.

Car enthusiast should not pass this one up. very fun to drive and with some modifications can be a fun track / street car. The ride is a bit bumpy stock but M3 subframe bushings and M3 suspension bits will improve the ride and drive dramatically. The 50/50 weight ratio provides perfect balance.

135i

by from HKY,NC on April 22, 2013

Superb. No one does it like BMW. The pull of the car, the sounds of the engine, the quietness of the cabin, and the man machine bond.
