Absolutely the BEST review to date on the 135. Wonderful perspective and great journalism style. Props!

Thanks for the props guys! And btw if you couldn't tell, I am now insanely jealous of all here who've ordered this car. You will absolutely love it.

Oh and you'll enjoy the special edition book that comes with all 2008 1 Series as well. I have a pre-production copy that I had to stop reading as I'm at least a year away from thinking about getting my own.

Fabulous review! It's exactly what people here want to hear. Makes me yearn for my car all the more so! Thanks! The second video made me laugh my ass off... in a good way.

There's a couple misstatements though.

Quote:
There’s even an oil temp gauge, something that’s been absent from all current BMWs save M cars for the past few years.
The 335i has one too.

Quote:
The key ingredient in all of this is the utterly fabulous 3.0L sequentially turbo charged inline six.
They are not sequential. There's one for each 3 cylinders.

Yes it is! I had wanted a AW or CR but all they had left was the MB or Sedona red which I'm frankly pretty tired I seeing.
