Full Version: BMW 135i coupe
Dieselstation Car Forums > The Cool Wall > Legacy Cool Wall > Cool
EDIT: New pictures; old links were broken.

Twin-turbo 3.0L inline-six, longitudinally mounted
Six speed manual is confirmed. No word yet on what type of automatic it'll have.

300 horsepower
300 ft-lbs of torque (from 1400 rpm)
This same engine in the 3-series has turned out to be remarkably lag-free.

Estimated price: $35k? $33k?

BMW has been increasingly criticized for focusing too much on gadgets and luxury and not enough on their sport heritage. The 1-Series is meant to be a return to that tradition. Smaller, lighter, and cheaper than a 3-Series coupe, it's aimed at a younger, more performance-minded audience. It'll likely offer an excellent combination of performance and (for a German luxury marque) value. But is it cool?
It's a 3-series that's squished...maybe cute, if that's your sorta thing, but definitely not cool.
This car grows on me day-by-day.... I voted cool... It's a nice little entry bimmer.

I agree. At first I hated the idea, now I'm starting to like this. Maybe it's just the idea that it's got the same engine as the 335? I dunno. I just like it. Cool.
I'll give it a cool, I don't see the frozen in this one.

To me, this car is meh. It's not frozen because it looks too compact. But it's still cool cause that engine in such a small car has to be a blast.
Uncool. The hatch looks so much better.

EDIT: Move it up to a 'cool', the looks have really grown on me.
