I thought the 2008 E92 335i already have the Electronic Diff.

See page 20 for more information...

In fact I can't think of a single reason why anyone would pick a 135i ahead of the 335i, it's as ugly as sin and hardly any cheaper.
Porsche > (Non-M) BMW even if a bit slower due to different purposes.

E92 335i > 135i regardless of price advantage.

please, it was a difference by one second.

You can't even really compare the cars, one is a 2 seater and the other is an entry level four seater... two different markets
1sec is a lot in racing....

"Race" was between a 135 and a base Cayman over one lap where the drivers showed off powerslides and played for the camera...

I'd rather be driving a Cayman then my 335i.

yeah i know.. still i think we all know 135 kicks ass on all ends.. but mid engine is real sweet to have. The cayman is better than most. If it has a higher top speed than 135i.. cool.

It looks nic sometimes,from the rear when driving behind it but... i dont like it.. i like the other true prosche's!

Kudos to porshce for making a practical drivers sports car
