well you should, if you ask anybody who was driven both cars, they will tell you that m3 and 135i perform almost the same, acceleration wise!! ive driven both of them and did quite a few hwy runs, they are neck to neck!! but 135i doesnt perform nearly as good as m3 does in the corners!!

they are closely lined up in power, the 135 is a bit lighter.

The broader & extra torque the 135i makes will jump the M3 off the hit. The M3 will eventually catch up, but it'll take a while, and the extra HP will only become evident in the higher gears. The 135i is no slouch.

You all know my favorite saying, HP sells cars, torque wins races, and this is a prime example of a torquier power characteristics winning over a much larger HP advantage of the M3.

i drive both all the time and go on 407 runs and yes they quite the same, believe it or not the 135 comes close in the handeling section to the m3.. the m3 only seems like its faster because if the screaming v8 under the hood

The 135 will blow the M3 off the line, then die quickly. Baby 135 grunts at ~1400 RPM which lets it rocket... and believe me it does. I've only test driven the M3 so I can't be definitive about the takeoff on it.

at $40k the 135i seems to be good value for money

Not when done up subtley.

Anyway, point is moot. E92 M3 > E8x 135


End of story.

it's members like you with the "I don't car attitude" that makes this forum turning to shits

Pointless. Waste of bandwidth and cost extra. Why make a new thread when there already exist one. Can't argue with me, I've owned and operated many forums and gaming servers. Bandwidth isn't cheap, so I would rather post on a 10 year old thread then make a new one when it hasn't been deleted yet.

this is a cool thread. I for one am glad it was resurected. Now lets get back to the 135 vs. m3 debate
