I like the RS, looks great compared to the 135i.

Garage List
2008 135i  [3.00]
Leave it to Ford to create a car with potentially serious interest in the US, but not make it for sale here. Can you say "please don't embarass the Mustang"? Yet another bone-headed decision by the guys careening towards bankrupcy.

As for the comparison, I guess the Ford might be the best car of the bunch - if you just drive up and down switchbacks a few times. It would be interesting to know how it would be as a DD - oh, but what's the point, they'll probably only make a handful of them anyway, all goo-green.

Yeah, never understood what goes on in their minds. The nutters keep creating cheap platforms for diff continents although one well developed product in each segment that would do well both in Europe and America.
