I couldn't find a story link, but I posted excerpts from a very positive Grassroots Mototsports (Feb. 2008) review of the 135i.

Thanks for the heads-up.

" The fact of the matter is this. The 135 coupé is the best car BMW makes. I have no hesitation at all, then, in giving this long-awaited return to form the rare accolade of five stars."
Quote Jeremy Clarkson.

He liked it.:roundel:Who woulda' figured that? I thought Clarkson hated BMW's.:iono:
