135 starting at $22k 128 Starting at $17K.

Aimed squarely at the Hyundai demographic.

NO WAY in HELL. NO BMW Will cost you less than 20K. Expect 135 to from 28-35K range. While 128 will like 22k-29K. Just my guess though.

I would buy a 135i even if it were more than the 335i. If you read the specs it looks like it would be worth it.

I would've bought the 135i instead of the 335i, if I was looking for a coupe. But I wanted a sedan. The specs are insane - outperforms the Porsche Cayman S.

the only thing a 335 beats the Cayman on are price and cargo/people space


don't kid yourself,

of course you can spend $1200 on software and then your car will be faster in a straight line

No. That is for the STOCK 135i, not the 335i. That is direct from BMW.

I thought I saw BMW claim a slower 0-60 for the 135 than the 335


I can only imagine they'll handicap the 1,

for the same reason that they didn't give the Z4 the M motor until the E46 was finished with it's production

you can't have the little ones beat up on big brother

either way, I'll be in line to test drive a 135 as soon as they show up!

my bad for confusing you with one of those other 335 people on the board

In UK anyway:
It only comes as an M-Sport, has brake energy regeneration, apparently comes with a LSD, weighs 3232 lbs, and can get 30.7 MPG.

lol. I just caught that. Like I said, I would have bought the 135i if I wanted a coupe. Personally, the only reason I can think of to get an e92 335i instead of the 135i (if they were both offered), would be that the 335i does look slightly better (IMHO). But I'll bet there will be some sick body mods for that platform.

BMW Canada is quoting 0-100 kph of 5.3 seconds. I would expect pricing the pricing of the 128i and 323i to be on par and 135 pricing to be just under 328 pricing.....BMW always has a nice stack.

I don't think I will fit in a 1 series and it looks like a shoe.

Sorry you are speaking Chinese to me here.....Canadian prices are out of whack with the exchange rate....how does the C&D estimate compare to the the 3 series?

Canadian prices might be much different.
