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.
I actually thought the E30 was gorgeous, then came the E36 and yeah...
You know what. At the end of the day, you bought the car not me, so thats all that matters. Everyone has their opinions, but if you're happy who cares.
Personally, I really like the rear of the 135, but the front has always been the problem.
