I've always said that the 135i is BMW's best kept secret. It's nice to see BMW is rewarding the enthusiasts with a chance to buy an even sharper 135i.
I agree with this comment - both parts of it.
Coming recently from a 2011 X3 35i, a 2009 M3 sedan, and a 2008 535xi, I have to endorse the idea that the current 135i is BMW's best kept secret. It may be the high price relative to the 3 Series cars, but I don't see many 135i's around here. Having just got mine a couple days ago, I am truly amazed how much fun this car is (and I say against my experiences with the M3). The 135i MSport just feels so light and nimble..!!
I toyed with the idea of waiting for the 135is, but needed to proceed before the 135is comes later this year. It sounds like a fun machine, suspect it may only last for the MY 2013 tho.
