And the kitten kickin will go on untill the use of that horrible "car-guy" thing stops!

Now.....give me a hood bump or something? Maybe a vent or some sort of hey.."That's the fast one"
This is already denoted by the larger brakes, more aggressive front fascia, side skirts, and rear diffuser, and larger wheels and tires. My wife can easily tell the difference. Would you prefer the term "detail observant?"

FWIW, I hate cats.

To OP go get a Nissan with a NISMO package, that will satisfy your craving for more "testicular" mass aka badges and oddly styled panels. http://www.nissanusa.com/nismo/370Z/

You say bling like it's a bad thing!
Bling is what built America!
Why did we walk across corn feed women land and cross some rivers and mountains to get to Cali?
BLING!

Yeah ok....a little color on the tip....ooohhh

Still think some hood vents would have been swanky!

You bought the car because of looks & performance if you are having second thought then you bought the wrong one. Should have gone to Toyota or Honda instead.

Well for me i much like the traditional sleeper! BMW has been prided of stealthy fast vehicles. I say to you you will change your mind about this when a HEMI Charger pulls up next to you and after a few quick chagnes of gears you look in your rear view mirror and see the amazement on their faces. Gets me everytime.

HAHAHA to all of em. I simply love getting the last laugh. Back in my not so proud racing days (last week just kidding I am talking decades ago) it was easy cash when you rolled up next to a car and they just knew they had you beat. Only they really didnt by like two car lengths. One always needed beer money.

Comparing apples to rhinos but it was a great little track beast that has absolutely zero practical purpose on the street. I've never been, nor do I think I ever will be, in a better handling car. You could turn at virtually any speed and it felt like you were bolted to the road. Power-wise, the 135i was significantly faster but definitely suffered in the handling department. You get a lot of looks and interesting responses to it being a 4cyl but the fiberglass exterior is beyond fragile and I felt like I could be snuffed out by some 4'9" soccer mom in an Escalade at any moment. I loved the Exige while I had it but I can't really say that I miss it.

So add some. Really easy fix.

My S4 seemed overly tame and quiet when I bought it so I slapped on an AWE exhaust and now it sounds like a fucking monster.

Thanks! I had a couple of cars I was looking at when I picked up my 1. That was one of em but I never got a chance to test drive it to see if I made the right decision.

You can sleep easy. I would take the 1er again in a heartbeat. I would still be driving it if I didn't have a little one on the way.

I both agree and disagree.

I think a BMW/Euro enthusiast can tell the difference, because we're used to picking up on subtle changes to bumpers and such with these cars.

But I argue that the general public (in which the OP seems to want to notice the difference) would look at three pictures of 1ers or see one in public and say they're the same car. Only lining them up side-by-side for them to analyze would allow them to see any notable differences, IMO.

I mean, the biggest change within any BMW series is a non-M to a M. They flare arches, add wheels, stance, hoods, etc...yet I've been asked is my E46 325ci was a M3 too often, if the ladies E90 328xi was a M3 (really? with 4x4 status you still think it's a M3?)....I think we've all had this experience with the general, non-enthusiast public sector and if they can't detect the difference of M to non-M...then 135/128 is lesser of a gap.

Well that decision was made even harder when my car was in the shop for a two month period within 3 months for the same issue which caused BMWNA to offer a buyback on my car hahaha. Knock on wood she's been great since I got her back.

Thanks King. I know I am definitely keeping her, the grass is always greener on the other side... I love great-handling cars, which is why I was debating that one for such a long time. It just looks amazing, until someone tries to sit in it.
