I'd get an E46 M3 over a 135i, even though I love the 1 series.
Do you like raw or comfort? The F30and even E90 trade rawness and connection for comfort and refinement. The E90 loaners I get feel really nice, and I prefer them to my ZHP on a commute, but on a back road the E46 is more fun. E90 335i would be a great compromise, but for me, why spend the money for a compromise?
