a twin turbo 1 series bimmer?

I'm thinking this chipped and modded might be a badass daily driver/racer.

anyone own one?

 Jeez, I wish, they're sweet. Are you thinking the 335i with chips and mods?? That will move.

There was a guy over on sportbikes.net who got one. Said it rocks and its by far a better bang for the buck than the M3 which he considered but didn't go with.

the 135i is dynamically sweet, but aesthetically horrendous.
wait for the new 2009 z4 sDrive35 roadster.
or for a better bargain 2009 370z

Yeah, they ALMOST look good. The shape is right but the lower door/skirt swoop needs to go and the headlights reshaped to look meaner. This would keep the car from looking so 'cute'. Basically make it a mini M3.

370z, wow. I haven't been keeping up with my cars. More HP and less weight, base model under 30k. How can you complain?

had an 04 350z for about a year and a half, got married then got a maxima...then bmw 335...and now ml 500...have always had z remorse, though 335 was better dynamically.

must trade in wife's tsx for 370z!

135i looks fun as hell to drive, 0-62 in 5.3, but I agree aesthetically it doesn't do it for me.

370Z all the way, I am guessing they are similarly priced.

the 135 is a great engine package, and yes, the design is too soft. u can always go big with rims, and some of the bodykits look nice, but the frontal area is too flat.
i did see a nice looking 135 in a h&r suspension ad

I like the hatch as well, let me dig up a pic. HEre we go. I would roll this, with a mountain bike in the back.

Love the 135i but too small for my needs.

Picking up a 330 on Saturday.

They really screwed up when they didn't release the Z1 to the US market back in 1988.
