So now that I've been driving the C4S for a while, I can't believe I even had to think about it. I know the 135 would have been faster (and much with the chip). But the C4S is just too damn sexy. Also, in day-to-day driving, I can't even feel the difference in hp. But each time I walk up to the car, I keep saying "damn, that looks good". Had I gone with the 135, I would have said "damn, that thing looks girly". I had to follow my wife one day while she was driving the C4S and I couldn't help but keep thinking how awesome it looked with the wide body! The style is "timeless". The 135 is "disposable".
The ride is awesome. It's not "hard" like people think. Our A4 on H&R coil overs is still the stiffest car we own.
LASTLY, with the introduction of the "M" 135, I would have been super pissed right about now that BMW kept saying "it ain't coming, it ain't coming" - but only to say that so that it wouldn't stop people like me from buying the current stock!
So sorry guys... I know this is a 135 forum. But for me, the choice was a good one with zero regrets. Obviously, your personal choice will vary.
