The M135 is so ugly looking its a firkin joke.

The M135i will be just another 135i car in future, as it is.

A manual M135i will not see where a M1 went.

If 1Ms had, and they DON'T, a Dct it would eat M3s and that won't happen.... Ever.

The 1M was and remains restricted/constrained/limited by the M3 benchmark, full stop.




THE 1M is a special car that will remain so, there will never be another 1M, potentially not a 6 cylinder either.

And I have consumed lots of coronas hehehe

M135i. A great insight into what we can expect from the 235i. Perfect for the blind.

Are there any comparisons between the 135i N55 W/ PPK and a M135i? I'd be interested in knowing like what was already mentioned.
Sorry but 1M is not ready for the track, very far from it!

Depends what is defined as track ready? It is as ready as any other M car is from factory.

NPV also mention the sale of our 1M above, it sold for $92k, nearly the same money as a M135, I know what I would have bought if I was shopping that money.
Whilst the looks aren't great, it's very subjective.

I actually feel that the 1m is a little over cooked / boy racer for me.

But that's my age showing thru I guess. When I was a 30 something, I wanted every one to know I drive a fast car. Now as a 40 something, stealth is the order of the day. Especially when I only have one car. Pulling up at clients in a 1m, or M3 not always the best signalling.

One of the joys for me with the e46 m3 was that to the untrained eye, it looked just like a 330. Then again, I suppose there are a few that would say the same about the 1m, 135

Btw, I don't think anyone is disputing the fact that the 1m is the better car.

But bang for buck, the m135 is right up there ( looks aside of course )

P.S. I am not convinced the 1m will be the "collectors" car some seem to think it is going to be. And based on Alpines sale price, I think that opinion is justified

This started out a good thread but has gone silly. 3 different cars at different stages of evolution -

135i - the original. Great engine but somewhat flawed handling. Now at the end of its life.

1M - a going away present for the E82 platform.

M135i - the next generation and a sign of things to come.

Ian pavo's 335i is no joke. It would run rings around most 1M's on here around a track IMO.

I had a nice drive of it last week and it's very quick especially around corners.

Who said an open diff is no fun.

BTW when are the 3 of us going for a coffee.

Well pav is semi retired (as you already new by his car choice 335i) so he's available most of the time and I prefer not to work most of the time myself.
We'll come to Mosman one weekend for a quick coffee and yarn.

Sorry a little OT here.

I was surprised to see 13 1M's on carsales, I missed the 1M boat at the time, a blessing as I really need a daily. Not liking the 235i front end, similar to M135i IMO.
Played it safe, learnt the hard way regarding daily vs track cars in the past.

Yeah the 2 series front end is a major worry.

Hey I see on carsales there's some M135i's with a drive away price of around $80k but then there's also a bunch of E82 135i's with drive away prices in the high $90k's. Suppose it comes down to options, but this seems silly.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what some fellow forum members do with the M135.

Seems the new chassis is a big improvement from all accounts

The appearance looks a little better with every review I read. Kind of like beer goggles
