I am immobilized by procrastination on what to replace my sadly departed M5 with. Its been 3 months without a BMW. I have consumed alot of wine to get through it... This thread as added another contender to my wishlist which currently consists of: Another E60 M5, E90/92 M3, F30 diesel (wait and see though..), F10 535i M-Sport, 1M (still awefully pricey on the used market)
135i has intrigued me since its release, to the point that I put money down on a 1M in 2010 and never got an allocation (still bitter). Perhaps I need to take one out for a drive again and see how it floats my boat...The
Thanks 135is owners for the pick me up this morning, I just joyrode on your support group!
mb, please bring it out to the Cars and Croissants NJ meet in March. They start up again first weekend in March I believe.
Thank you! Satch has said no to a 135is feature. Perhaps I didn't sell it well enough. Wanted to take the column in a different direction, but he wasn't interested in that, which I completely understand. The MINI-rati need their fix.
Best thing I could say is to go drive a 135is or 135i before you make any decisions. You will notice a major build quality difference in a 1 and an M5 (duh).
Matter of fact, if you shoot me a PM, you're more than welcome to come drive mine once the summers are back on and you can get the real feel.
I've never heard of cars and croissants - I'd absolutely love to come. Get me some more info!
