BMW 135i vs BMW M3 E92
 
BMW 135i vs BMW M3 E92 what will the 135i do with an ECU upgrade?

I dont believe the 135 beats the M3... Im sorry.

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.

should be faster than 13.3......old m3 dose 13.3

mid high 12 sec easy

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

soloe30 01-01-2009 03:18 PM

but the 135i is ugly.

Qube 01-01-2009 03:24 PM

Not when done up subtley.

Anyway, point is moot. E92 M3 > E8x 135


End of story.

When I get money, I'll be getting a 1series. Sat in one today, felt just like my E30 but on steroids!

Quack 06-24-2010 08:52 AM

dude, read the date before you post, this thread is almost 2yrs old.

I remember this from way back
I honestly don't understand the slack the 135 gets it's such a great all around BMW. A little small but so is the e30 and everybody loves the e30!
BMW got it's start in small cars
