What's up with the 135- M3 vs 135

What's up with the 135?

the 135 seems to be getting good reviews. Did anyone check it out?

The e92 M3 and e46m3 although look different and handle diferenetly, the M suspension and feel are similar . The charectaristic m feel is instantly recongizable


How does the 135 compare to the new M3 ( i know they are at a diff price point etc but wondering what is the 25k getting us in the M ( engine and better suspension ? )

I hopt this is not going to turn into a wierd thread just wondering

For one point of view you can check out a post I made when I was deciding.

I had ordered a 135i and switched to an M3. Net, net - both are great cars. But the M3 really got me excited about it in a way the 135 didn't quite manage to capture for me.

Cheers.

the M Brand = 5k
the cool feeling = 5k
"what are you driving?"when a girl asking you, you siad "M3" = 15k

im waiting for a e92 m3, and i think the 135 is great beacuse it is smaller, and is almost as fast as the m3. but anyway i think a 2005 or 2006 e46 m3 would be a better choice than a 135.
