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.

135i Hydraulic steering, not electronic

Automobile Mag 135i article

Link:
http://www.automobilemag.com/reviews...35i/index.html

It states in the article the 135i will have hydraulic steering, this is the second article that has confirmed this.

Quote from the article:
"That said, steering feel is fantastic - it wouldn't be a stretch to say that the 135i's hydraulically assisted rack (all other 1-series cars use electrically aided steering) offers better feedback than any other current BMW, and that's saying a lot."

Electronic, Hydraulic, Electro-hydraulic, what the hell is it BMW?

I just would like someone to verify it, either way all the reviews have loved to car. Guess I will have to wait until I see the car in two weeks at the LA Auto Show.

No. I had a bad experience with Frank.

I think you're giving BMW too much credit. S2000's and M3's both have six speed transmissions, doesn't mean that they feel anywhere near similar. I'm not saying Honda does everything better, but I will say that BMW doesn't do electronic steering nearly as well as it does hydraulic steering. In addition, fwd cars seldom have that good of steering feel, so you'd be less likely to notice the change.

I guess we'll all have to wait and see.

me too- just as long as it feels more like my E46 and less like an E90.
