Have you driven them? It's true about the 135i being a rocket sled. My test drive, my heart was pounding, not a joke. (I only test drove MT's, but did drive an AT 135i once as a loaner.) Anyway, I remember the fuel tank being close to empty, and the dealer being of a smaller stature, so maybe the relatively light weight really pronounced the high levels of adrenaline.

However, I have a feeling that the 128i will likely be plenty for you. I see at the BMW site, after a quick calc with the first numbers given for unladen weight, that it would be 771 lbs less than your current ride.
