Once I find out the curb weight of the 135i I will be happy. I'm guessing ~3200lbs?

nope. someone said it's only a 1xx pounds lighter than 335. in one of the hundreds of 1 thread. i think it was 34xx.

edit. tried looking for it but can't find it. idk who said it on what thread. so yeah. take it for what it's worth. i guess we'll find out for sure when the official specs are released.

oh man. i cant wait for that. due to the fact that i will not be in the financial situation to get a 335, i can still enjoy that beautiful twin turbo engine. i think this thing is gonna sell.

Sports Suspension includes 6-piston fixed calipers front brakes and 2-piston fixed calipers rear brakes. AWESOME!!!

Standard 60/40 split seats, standard Aero kit...Logic7 does not come standard. hehehe

I wonder if the the quote 0-60 time of 5.3 seconds is for the auto or the 6MT. I guess it's MT cus that's what they usually post. The stated time is .1 second quicker than the 335i. Based on that the 135's 0-60 street time migh just hit 4.6 seconds (since it's lighter it will pick up speed faster).

Bottom line: THIS IS GONNA BE ONE SWEET ASS CAR!!!

Holy Shit... 6 piston calipers, lighter weight, better tires, better suspension, remapped throttle response. It's like BMW has been reading my posts on here and basing the 135i on what I think the 335i should have been. I think BMW may have won me over again. Boy would I be pissed if I had bought a 335i. This thing is going to rip the e92 apart at everything but storage capacity. I don't even care if they leave the automatic seat belt feeder things off it. It's amazing that they would put 6 piston calipers on this lighter car when the big 335i only has single piston floating calipers. They really could have called this thing an M2/M1 if they wanted to. Provided the "performance tires" aren't run flats I don't see what this car is missing

still haven't warmed up to the looks. the rear just seems like it could've been done a lot better. wonder where they'll stick the amber reflector.

anyway, i'm looking forward to seeing this car. it's always nice to see the car in person to get a better perspective.

i can totally see this will be a hot seller for bmw if priced right.

As always, aesthetics is always subjective. Personally, I think the rear looks great!

I'm guessing the amber reflector will be placed on the fender along the wheel well as they are on the 3-series coupes.

And it definitely looks better in person!

i too think the car looks amazing. i was almost decided to get the z4 coupe but i may wait for this little guy. plus, hopefully i'll save 10 grand or so too. i'm not quite ready for an M car and i really want that twin-turbo beast engine which isn't coming to a Z4 anytime soon.

i'm really excited about this...

1er coupe is going to be fun and fast car. Imagine a possible M-DCT and all weight saving material for the future M1, it is going to be the fastest M car offering from BMW.

I think this car is awesome... I'd buy one.


Is there space on e90post for the 1er (E87)? I know the E90 and the E87 share some components/architecture...
