135i vs 335i

I was wondering why the reviews online, says the 135i does 0-60 in 5.3 second when the 335i can do it in 4.8.
Dont they have similar hp, torque and a identical turbo and engine. I am guessing the reviews are conservative, or the 135i has different gearing than the 335. what do you guys think?

Actually, as far as we know, no outside organization (magazine, etc) has tested the 135i yet. BMW claims the 135i will do 0-100 kmh in 5.3 seconds (100 kmh ~ 62 mph).

Bmw 335i with manual gearbox sprints from 0-60 in 5.3 seconds according to bmwusa.com. People on different forums claim that they have done below 5 sec... but officialy it is 5.3 seconds or 5.5 sec. for auto..

I'm not so sure that BMW will want to come out and say that a less expensive model will trump the 335i.

We'll probably just have to wait until a real test.

Thats a great question. My guess and expectation is no gear change. Like a great girlfriend she under promises.

Most of the American rags put the 335 at a tick under 5 seconds to 60 (4.8-4.9). The 135 is a substantially lighter car with the same engine, so it damn well better be a bit faster than the 335.

My performance fears for the 135 have to do with the open diff and the electric power steering. I have no doubt it will be a scorcher in a straight line.
