I luuurve my 135 convertible. It was noticeably faster than the 335.convertible we test-drove, even if the numbers posted don't put the 135 on top.

I was sooo excited to see my favorite car on line.I was sooo disappointed to not find it in the magazine.

I only owned one BMW, but it was a sweet car. A 1971 1/2 2002 with the ZF 5 speed close ratio trans---not available in the USA, but I fooled BMW by ordering mine from Ethiopia when I was in the Peace Corps. I agree that a light pocket rocket brings grins every day. It was a fun car, and I really didn't wish for more power.

I have a 128i coupe 6MT with sport package and I find it to be a very coherent package. I test drove and love the 135i but actually liked the linear high revving character of the N52 NA engine better (more involving) but wouldn't mind the abundant torque of the 135i

The 135i has a N55 single (twin scroll) turbo motor and not the N54 twin turbo motor.
