The appearance looks a little better with every review I read. Kind of like beer goggles
It isn't an M... You guys just don't get it

Great car other than its filthy front end.... Bring on the M2, albeit 4 cyl

What don't we get ? Don't think anyone stating it is an M

The whole point to the posts is bang for buck performance with the 1m setting the bench mark.

Besides, very few people track their cars relatively speaking

1M is a relic already... But that is a good thing

It will be an epic car over time
Interesting - both of us 135i and 1M owners and actually I don't agree at all. It is very tight and responsive that to me makes it a better DD. Without the run flats the 1M rides better, with better body control that encourage better driving. Sure you are not comparing the 135i with your lowered 1m? . The only thing 1M was not as good is the noise - more road noise and the dreaded drone at 110km in 6th.

Many love taking the 1M to the backroads too where it shines. You don't need a track at all.

Don't think there is much debate that the M135i is a really, really good car. Just watch the Chris Harris video where it sh*ts all over an Audi RS3 that costs 10,000 quid more.

When it comes to what makes a car collectible though, what gives it that special "soul", performance comes second to looks. Ideally you combine looks and performance, but looks matter most.

It is no coincidence that the most collectible cars in the world (think Ferrari 250 GTO, Aston Martin DB4 Zagato, etc) are also absolutely stunning. Or that Sepia brown Porsche 911s are very hard to sell.

The M135i will come and go and quickly be forgotten. Looks matter. People want to collect a Sharapova not a Mauresmo.

^ not for a second suggesting the M135 would be collectible, but to your point about all collectibles being attractive, not so sure about that.

I for one don't see any beauty in a HK Monaro, but one is being auctioned at Shannon's next week with price expectations of $90k +


Even the fugly Leyland P76 fetches decent prices, and what about some of the classic cars such as the 3 wheel BMWs ? Nuttin pretty there

Thought this may lighten things up a bit.

Hope it's not a repost
