I know what you mean. Mine seems to break the law a lot more as the weather improves each spring.

It's a delicious little car. Some car mag said it might be the last driver's car BMW has made. I hope not, but if it is, I'm glad I got one. You guys will be, too, I bet.

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.
