Life experience tells me the 135i probably doesn't weigh more than the 535i, but I've been wrong before.

There's plenty of power here, but what I'd like to know about is the wheel base compared to a 3 Series. If I could find a modern-day version of an E30 to stablemate with my 325i, I'd be thrilled.
Right, that is wonderful. That is what happens when specs get converted by site creators. It's unfortunate that he linked what he linked. Go look at the correct OFFICIAL specs ate bmw.com NOT bmwusa.com

you will see a 40kg difference, which is about 80 pounds.

Thank you.
