It shows the unladed weights...

135i - 1560 kg = 3,439 lbs.
335i - 1600 kg = 3,527 lbs. (but that's with 17" wheels/tires), so the difference in weight between the 135i and the 335i = 88 lbs.

Even if you compare the 135i with the 335i 6AT w/ sport package (and 18" wheels/tires) = 3,582 lbs., then the difference in weight = 143 lbs.

Although that weight difference might be a slight advantage (although definitely not as significant as many ppl had anticipated), we must also take into acct. that the 135i may also have a non-true dual, more restrictive exhaust which may counteract it's slightly lighter weight of the 335i.

Anyway, thanks for the link; I'd say a lot of ppl are going to have some fun with the 135i.

No problem. Just some facts for people to bite into.

It also give a good idea on what the price diff is between the two. Should be a good gauge as to how much it'll cost here.

There's almost a 6000 quid difference between them, which leads me to believe that it'll be about a 7000-8000 dollar difference here.

Also, it shows that the 135i coupe is the same exact price as a 325i M-sport sedan.
