Golf R, JCW hatch, STI sedan. I guess it's possible for these cars to influence the way I perceived the 135i, but I didn't think it would have had as big of an impact as it did.
Last time before I drove the 135i I test drove a G37 coupe and a 335i sedan.
P.S. when driving the JCW I thought the car's demeanor reminded me a lot of the 135i. Sporty, agile, quick, responsive, a bit harsh. Then yesterday happened.
