Save the little car crap for the people at work who have no idea that the 135 only weighs 150lbs less than a 335, mkay?
First off, I will be the first to agree with you that the 335i is a much nicer car and far more attractive. That said, I had an e46 and moving the 1 you can definitely feel the compactness of the car when driving around. Yes, it is a portly thing, but it is still quite a bit smaller than the 3 which makes it, on the whole, much easier to drive. And, imho, until the e46 coupe, the ugly duckling part was an essential component of the BMW formula.
