I love it! I also believe my 2009 135i just got a little more valuable! N54 FTW!

Awesome car, but I find that the body lines almost doesn't fit the car. Plus it seems to be too high for a ///M car. Lower that thing it would look better.

Yeah because it's all about the bootlid... nevermind the performance or the fact that it's an M. It's all about the aftermarket I'm sure... same reason they're holding back on the Carbon Fiber bits for the diffuser, mirrors, etc. I'm still holding out hope that a CF Roof will be an available option.

I'm sure they photoshopped every image just to avoid showing the head lamp washers. (again) OR even more plausible, it's an Option... I for one would opt not to have them.

because you are defining performance as straight line speed and power, while M clearly has more of a handling mentality
The m3 suspension, wide track, and LSD are going to make this thing a brilliant car
I just wish it was actually lightweight
I don't know anyone who defines a 3400lb curb weight as light weight
Thats approximately the same as my 330i, which isn't bad, but not what I was expecting

not feelin it. The proportions are odd. To my eye it appears sort of bottom heavy now with nothing being done to the upper half of the car to compensate for the huge bit o' kit added to the bottom. That and the M3 ears are too big for the frame. Though she does have a nice Arse...

Meh. I'm underwhelmed as well. If they had put in a high-revving naturally aspirated M POWER engine I wouldn't care WHAT it looks like, but honestly this isn't worth the extra $9k USD. Bigger brakes, M differential, nifty suspension, rack and pinion steering... but same engine and body style. This isn't a new car, it's a fancied up 135i (as it has always been) and it's not the car for me.

But hey, to each his own. I'd be perfectly happy with an E46 M3

Unhappy No M3 Seats?!

Hold on! Those are stock 135i seats, aren't they? So M3 seats (which lack the side airbags the 1-series seats have) didn't make it? Arrrgh!!!
