So the 335i is 3571 and say the 135i is 3372 which would make more sense to how much the automatic wieghs, that is a 200 pound difference, which is huge. That it at least .2 off your 0-60 time. That is a big difference. I really do not get why people flame this car. They should be happy bmw is making a cheaper, quicker car, with sick brakes. If I had a 335 coupe I would be happy, and not flame the 1. I personally have my eyes now set on the one to save some money, but Ill admit the 335 is a nice car.
My comments have nothing to do with the car i own, they have to do with published BMW figures on this car's weight. It is 40kg less than a 335i. Period. All this talk of the 135i being the new 2002 is just pipe dreams. It's a porker.
