Yeah - a few pple have noticed this in the past. The 135i has the same model designation as the hatch ie: E87.

It's not unusual for the locals who do the compliance plates to get the model designations completely wrong. This is particularly the case when there are several variants of the same series eg hatch, coupe, convertible.
