...which is substantial! A 200 lb. weight savings makes a whole lot of difference, especially given that the 135i will have the exact same engine/tranny as a 335i.

word..... i don't know where people are getting that the 135i is only gonna be 50lbs lighter than a 335i... try 200lbs lighter.. not to mention a smaller wheelbase... much better performance platform to start with... A/C delete, lighter rims/brakes, lighter hood/trunk will put this car at 3000lbs with some ECU mods 400hp.... thats good enough to rip 99% of cars on the road... that Tii is looking awesome.. cant wait to see what BMW is going to do with the 1 series platform.

P.S. eyelids fix the gay headlight problem.

I wonder if BMW is going to bring the tii to the states. If so it's definitely my next ride.

Do we have any idea what engine will be put in this thing? The old tii had significantly less power than the turbo version. Can we expect the same here?

I own a 3dr 1-serie Hatchback and its fantastic to drive, better than a 3-series imo. A 2002tii would be amazing, light weight materials and a great engine, I cant stop drooling. I want it.

Same here. "That is the ugliest car ever. Who would drive that thing." were my exact words when I saw the press release in July. Now I love it. It's still not a great looking car but it's a car with great potentials.

Not sure bro.

From what I've been reading, the 335i is supposed to get an LSD-like option which works through DSC (..info source through various threads).

My question is....

...is the 135i a mechanical LSD? Or the DSC related LSD mentioned above?
