• I had no idea these were that quick. All of the enthusiast reviews tended to be on the 135. However, it would take some pretty stellar performance to make me get over that face. This is easily the least attractive front end of any BMW I can think of. The rear isn't great and the overall proportions have always seemed awkward to me but it is really the face that looks like someone with a badly done eye-lift that turns me off the most.

  • Agree that the proportions of the E82 1-series coupe were always a little off, the convertible looks slightly less off, but not great. The power output of the twin-turbo 135i coupe was considered underrated and it was a properly quick car. From behind the wheel, you can't see how odd the proportions are. And at that point, you probably don't care.
