I didn't see $5k worth of entry-level car "stigma" in the 135. Granted the exterior styling might be a bit polarizing for some folks, but there is nothing about the 135 that insinuates "entry-level"...

Just make sure the car doesn't have any major problems.

You don't want to spend a bunch of money fixing problems when it would be less costly to find a 3 in better condition from the start.

Fifth Gear on Joost has a comparison between a 130i M-sport 5-door and a VW R32 5-door.

They absolutely loved the R32.

Anyone tried the UUC RSC36 yet?

It's $900, which I'm having a hard time figuring out why it is worth $400 more than the System U.

If you haven't replaced the plastic water pump impeller, make sure it didn't break and cause a hose to burst. Also, check the plastic neck of the radiator.

I won't have a clue until I test drive one, but I'll bet the 135 will have huge potential with minor tuning and some modest weight loss.
