Last night at "in n' out" drive thru, the guy asked if my car was a 135... I'm surprised more people now know about the e82 than I thought...

Had a e92 335i before the AW 135i and I get this from everyone. The girls do seem to like the 1er better, its like a magnet!

Yeah when I'm talk to people who don't know the 135 this is what I tell them.
And then they begin to understand.
I also call it my poor man's M3.

Met me friend at a VW dealership, he wanted some of my input since I am a VW fan. (He got a Jetta)

Salesman watches me pull in with my 128i with my smoke of a gf.

Salesman: WOAH is that an M1? That is so cool
Me: Thanks I just got it, nah this is just a non-M 1-series.
Salesman: Oh *chuckles* I always see girls and old ladies drive that around.
Gf: I think the car sexy, *Puts her arm around my waist*, what do you drive again?
Salesman: Just a Ford Ranger pickup truck
Gf: Oh....just a Ford....

The wife told me the other day she thinks my 135 looks like a chicks car. I laughed and told her just wait. She is deployed right now and has yet to see it in person. I think her opinion will change once I open it up on the Autobahn!

Yesterday at my daughter's new school:

My daughter and I pull up and park slowly (it is a school) with only the rumble of the golf-tee mod. An 8 year old boy came tumbling out of some crap minivan with his entire family and shouted "Wow that is such a cool car!"

Knowledge - it never starts too early.

I go to shows and meets all the time. I usually cruise in with windows down and I always hear someone say "dude that's one of those 1Ms". I just laugh and keep driving.

They do seem rare enough in general(especially modified) that everyone assumes they are a 1M.

It's partly because I have "M" styled stripes on my driver side front fender and a CF vinyl wraped roof. The reason for the stripes and wrap are because I wanted to make my car unique and personal. I also have the Scorpion USA front lip. The car just looks mean when it's coming toward you.

This happened when I was shopping around for my 1er..
Called a dealer: (they had a 2008 135)
Salesman: this is a real beauty, it does run it flies, and last year of turbos too...
Me: Not really, TT were 08-10, twin-scrolls 11+...so they're still turbos.
Salesman: You're wrong, and if you're right my name is not Joe Schmoe and I'll give you $1k discount.
Me: Deal, I'll pick it up tomorrow.
Salesman: I'll double check on that because my son told me...
LoL
So few people know what these cars are all about!
Ended up picking up a 2010 getting lots of looks everything! And since it's almost blacked out completely looks pretty aggressive too.

This (teenager) dude @ the place I worked has debagged non-M e46 .He was bragging about it and telling about how fast his car is. I know his car is fast but it's nothing to write home about. I went up to him and talked to him about cars. Here's how the conversation went after our general car chat:

Me: "I'd presume you drive the black e46 outside. If so, that's a very nice looking e46" (It honestly was a very nice example of a clean non-M e46)
Him: "Yeah, it's pretty fast. It's like a step below an M3." Implying that it's a 330ci.
Me: "Yeah, you're right. I'm sure it's pretty quick"
Him: (probably thought I was cocky by saying "pretty") "So, what do you drive?"
Me: "I drive a 1-series"
Him: "Really?! My car will kick your 1-series' butt"
Me: (a little irked on the inside) "Probably"
Him: "So, wanna race? from a dig or on a roll? You decide."
Me: "Nah, I don't do street racing. Besides, neither of us will not be happy with the result either way."

I don't know what's wrong with this guy. Days later, he saw my car but didn't realize it was my car. He pointed @ it and said "I beat 1 series like those before." I didn't feel the need to show him up or correct him. I want him to figure things out for himself.

Passing by a softball field in my 2011 135i Vert. Five teens/post-teens are smoking on the bleachers, looking uber-cool -- or so they think. I roll up to the stop sign just next to them, downshifting from 2nd to 1st, and Boil (my car's name) makes its signature pop and growl. All five look at me.

"Crib car, dude," the one says. I look over in my mirrored sunglasses, smile slightly as I slip it into neutral, and push it to about 3,000. They all stand up. I drive off -- slooooowly.

Gawd day-um I LOVE THIS CAR!!! AHHHHHH!!!!!

I was leaving a car show and my mirrors were folded. As I am at the exit the two people at the entrance/exit politely tell me that my mirrors are folded.
I told them it's all good.
They give me a weird look like I was a fool. As I drive off I click the button to unfold them.
They shouted out "wtf hahaha that's awesome!" One guy nearly fell out of his stool in shock haha.

I find that the ejector seat takes care of that just as well.

My neighbour keeps telling his friends who like cars that I drive a 1M even after I've previously corrected him by pointing out its a 128i. Its not that I feel inferior each time I have to correct him (I love my car) but to be constantly reminded there's an ultimate driving machine version of this car that isn't sitting in my driveway is getting old.

Most recently his response was "But you've done some performance upgrades right?"

Yeah sure I have. I got BMW Performance Brakes and Michelin PSS tires. Big deal. That doesn't even make the car LOOK like a 1M much less drive like one.
