Remember for the US market, every model/engine combination has to go through government testing and approval. This costs millions to do. The 135i, with the way the Dollar is to the Euro, is a low profit margin car. They have to sell many before they recoup the 135i's startup costs. If sold in too low of a volume, it will lose money. They would be better served not making as much, and selling more, recouping investments sooner to put into other things.
