E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

What about the brake system, are they in same spec?

Brake system is going to be better than the 335. A/T, nobody knows. It will be at least as good as the 6-speed ZF found in the 335 with optional paddle shifters.

I hope you're right, but are you guessing, or do you have some sort of evidence to back this?

Probably the same transmission. I don't see a reason why they should opt for a new transmission. They have already experience with the same engine + transmission combo in 335i, a change would mean additional development costs and would require a bunch of extra tests.
