^^ OK so what's all the hype about then? I mean, the 135i will start at 35k, the 335i starts at 40k...for 5k$ there is no way i'd drive that that ugly thing...
If this weighed 3000 lbs I could understand the excitement. But it weighs more than my old 350z, which most people feel is somewhat of a heifer, and it's ugly?? I think this just 'looks' small and people just assume it's light etc, hence the hype.
