This! I have no doubt the 135is will be one fun little car, but the chassis is so OLD. I know a lot of people hate the design of the F20, but the interior improvements a really nice. It will be a bit crazy to see the F82 hang out until 2014, but that seems even more likely with the intro if this IS model.
