Montego 135 coupe(Pics for Bobbo) :)

Went to the dealership today to order a 550 for someone and this week is supposedly the european debut of the 123/135 in all dealerships. I figured I'd take some pics of those interested.

I have to apologize to some of the 1 series guys out there. Not about the weight, I spoke with my SA and a BMW engineer about that and they said while it is smaller in dimensions, there's not way that would add up to more than 100lbs.

I apologize because the pics dont do the car justice. It looks great! Sportier than the E92. When I sat in the car, it felt ever so slightly smaller than an E92. The trim is Glacier something, cant remember but dont fall in love with it, only europeans get it.

Anyways, here are the pics. I tried to get as many as I could, but I'm no photographer. Enjoy

By the way, if you see the dirty marks on the fifth picture around the opening of the car, its cause it took everything I had and the embarrassment of a woman watching me try to get out in order to escape from the back of this car. Unless your age is in single digits, dont bother going back there unless you wanna destroy the car.

Very nice car. It has its quirks looks-wise and man that dash is wretched - better get a dark trim.

What really matters is how the car drives and I'm sure it will be fantastic. Trying to talk my business partner into getting one so we can have some fun


I keep picturing this car on VS7s, Volks, LMs etc and I think the car will look exponentially better with a set of proper alloys and a lowered stance.

A big thank you.

I have to agree after seeing the car in person at LA auto show I was relieved that the car doesn't look bad at all. Now I have to decide whether to have a new car this xmas, if I can find a e92 335i on the lot, or next spring. Then there is the M coupe that can be had for 10-13k off msrp.

So you decided to go for an E92? What made you change your mind?

lol, some of those pics are of a 123d. Some are of a 135. It's not very popular with the people there to be flashing pictures in front of customers, so I had to move back and forth between the two cars.

I haven't made the final decision yet. I really want a car now instead of another 5 month.

I just noticed there is an American flag in the background. Is that dealership on base?

No, its about 10 minutes from the base. BMW dealerships here have a section dedicated to U.S. Military/contractors, so thats why the flags there. This dealership's actually tiny compared to other ones.
