Great article, coverage, and great job building both cars, Harold! I'd love to convert my 135i Coupe like yours.

Nice article. I'm wondering why the 135 didn't have a 225/255 setup?

Great coverage! Again, not surprised that a tuned x35 pulls ahead of the M (cost-efficiency).

A stock 135i is a little bit boring? Perhaps to an automotive journalist who gets to drive all sorts of exotic cars and probably owns a 10 year old Honda.
