Edit: I just noticed the numbers on the front tag. This is the same car that was shown to BMW Center employees at various locatons throughout the US.

This is actually pretty exciting.

That must be the 128 if it's not a 135 and it's in America (I know it's a Euro-spec car, but still). Those brakes look mighty big, even if they're not the full BMW branded 6-pot stoppers. Actually, maybe it is a 135i, judging by the size of the brakes and the rear lip spoiler... Hmmm...

Am I correct in concluding that it has Shadowline trim? I hope they give us that option.

The interior looks, maybe, like Lemon??

I'm guessing 128, it doesn't have the silver accent around the greenhouse

That does not matter, this is a Euro spec 135i. The trim is Shadowline which is part of the M Sport Pkg. in Europe. Also notice the front bumper cover (M Sport) and the front calipers (6 pot).

:wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub::wub: :wub: :biggrin:

i'm guessing that's a 135 based on the size of the front breaks ... something that looks like a small spoiler on the back and a large opening in front for the intercooler...

if it is the same one that was in the earlier black photos then yeah it appears to be lemon ...

i don't care for the wheels but the rest is hot. did i mention :wub:

I just want the Shadowline trim! That looks soooooo much better than the Chrome. Graphite Grey, Coral Leather, and Shadowline is sounding mighty good right now.

It is the same car that was previously viewed by BMW Center Employees.

the shadowline trim looks cheap to me, i think the chrome accent makes it look more stately...granted that might be at odds with what the vehicle is intended for.

Black Sapphire (metallic) Overcast conditions make it appear as though it is Jet Black.

Sweet! I'll have to keep my eyes peeled in case it goes out on the open road. I work about 10 miles from there in Greenville. I saw two of the Z4 M coupes cruising down the interstate about a month before they were anounced.

Is the 135 bigger than an Z4 M coupe?

without remembering the official dimensions, from the top of my head, yes it is, but not by much.

lol

I hope Shadowline trim is at least available on the 135i, though I doubt it will be...

I love it on my ZHP, though I have almost burned my arm on it a few times when rolling down the window and sticking my arm out for whatever reason. It gets hot!

If its not available and I do purchase a 135i, it'll be one of the first things to change, I just dont do chrome...

^ but every "US" picture so far has chrome trim...

Look at BMWUSA.com, all of the pictures of that model have chrome trim. Doesnt mean it couldnt change, but I have a feeling we'll see it just as it is on that site...

+1 I'm with you if it doesn't come with the shadow line trim I'll probably have my dealer get done at there body shop before I even pick it up.

The blacked-out shadowline trim had better be available to us or some modification/treatment to the glaring and tacky chrome-lookin' trim will be in order. With the 264 wheels that's as good as it gets.
