I've read quite a few reviews in car mags/blogs that echo that same sentiment. I got a 128i as a loaner while my 328i was in for service and instantly I knew I owned the wrong car.

So where there is M135i, "135is" isn't available. 135i technically you can't get it anymore (at least not for us), so there is no overlap. yawn.

http://www.m-power.com/_open/b/varli...lang=en&x=2807 this guy says driving experience is very different for the M135i/135is from that of a 135i. I bet there are more than enough tuners here to prove him wrong.

Why, BMW, who's making those decisions? $$$ eh. I wonder if you pop a firmer suspension on a regular 135i and LSD how's that compare to the M135i.
+1

Firmer suspension plus LSD compared to the m135??? Can't answer that question since I don't have access to the m135. My 135is has bmwp springs, Bilsteins, and a quaife so if anyone stateside managed to smuggle in an m135 we can do a comparo.

135is is gonna remain as one of the classic sports coupe BMW has ever built. This legend is about to disappear and I am so happy I was able to join the legacy of it.

Well, I'm trading in my 6MT 2010 135 for a DCT 2013 135is. I will truly miss the 6MT and tune on the 2010 but wife says I must shave some money off the car payment I suppose I will enjoy the 135is. May not be as tunable but it will still be plenty of fun.

135is is still one of the best buys out there for the price. Always has been one of the better BMW's available

I've been following the thread and your posts. They have been very informative, thank you. I'm going to call my local DINAN certified service center this week and schedule an appointment. I've been looking at the S2 for a while and now that the price is 50% off it's a no brainer to me. I'm not so much looking for the power/torque as the DD efficiencies but it's definitely a nice bonus. Will keep tracking the other thread and will post my impressions.
