Nope sounds good to me. After all the talking and waiting for this sheet to come out, all the 135 guys should be happy! These prices cant be a surprise, people have been saying $35k base for a while now.

I think that the 135i is priced appropriately.

I think its too high. Not to mention they basically gave it all the options of the 3 series which is a mistake. Things like comfort access should be exclusive to 3+ series. Basically BMW is making the 1 series a 3 series in a different body for less money. Terrible marketing IMHO. They have to keep some differentiality(is that a word?) between the two lines to justify the higher pricing for the 3 series. If you can get over the looks and size of the 1 series, you can have all the perks of a 3 series (options and performance wise) for $5-10K less.

Were you in the group of people who thought you could get a loaded 135 for $35,000?


I personally don't think it's too expensive at all. You're talking about a smaller, lighter, shorter version of the 3 series with aero kit stock (on the 135) and a different body style. Too many people just had COMPLETELY unreasonable expectations for the price of this car given what the standard equipment (specifically the engine) was.

My 335 was $46,129. It does seem like a lot, but I am sure that Vishnu will have a lot of fun w/the 135. Should be a very fast car!

Compared to my E90 335i, it is exactly 4k less expensive with the same options. I expected it to be about 6k less than an equivalent sedan ($41,500 the way I have it optioned compared to 47,500). If they have good lease rates, they'll sell alot.

Unless of course, you need 4 doors.

you people are absolutely dreaming if you ever thought the 135i would cost anything less than $35k. where people come up with these ideas is beyond me.

what other car can you get with 300+hp, 300+lb/ft torque for $35 grand? not to mention the handling characteristics, shifter, clutch, interior and all the other BMW things that make BMW's great.

find me a car with a better value for $35k and i'll believe you when you say the 135i is overpriced. and no, the g37 doesn't even come close. i believe the is350 is more expensive and slower as well. so what else is there that even compares?

This is NOT accurate!!! They would not charge for power seats on a 135, just like a 335. They are not going to charge for premium hifi!! Plus, since I work for BMW, they would never have a sheet organized like this. I smell BS!!! Just hold your horses and wait another month, you wont be able to get the car before then anyways.

Yes I do too. It's crazy that they charge $3600 for premium package on 128i, and 135i MSRP is only 3K less than E90 335i or 5K less than E92.

too much money for a 1 series. but the rationale is that they don't want to water down the brand name, nor do they want to defer 3 series customers based on price.

135i is a coupe not a sedan. It should be a comparison between e92 335i and the 135i.

FWIW.. Optioned the same... The 135 is $5K less than my 335i coupe. I'd still spend the extra $5K on the 335i. Just like the way it looks. If peformance is all you want, seems reasonable. You can't get this kind of engine in ANY car for $35K. Technically you could buy a base 135i, a Procede v2.02 and some sticky tires for less than $38k and be running 1/4 miles with base Corvettes. Not shabby.
