I currently dive a 2010 135i and frankly believe the G37 sedan is just as fast. Super nimble for a sedan, totally impressed. Still love BMW's but 3 series has nothing on the G37! Please explain?
From the general consensus around this thread, I think the "crappy" engine opinion being thrown around is in regards to potential. It seems like what people are saying is that the engine is already peaked out, and even an FBO setup will result in minimal power gains; whereas, the 135i has much more potential and much more alternative routes.

Granted, both stock for stock are relatively similar in performance.

Feel free for anyone to chime in and correct me if my input is incorrect, just what I've gathered from reading this thread.
