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.

BMW M Performance Auto M135i F20 Spied

F20 M135i caught testing

BMW M Performance Automobiles, the newest off shoot of the M division kicked off with a bang. Rolling out for diesel monsters, the F10 M550d sedan & wagon, the X5 50d and the X6 50d. Our spied snapped picture of this F20 1 series hatchback with noticeably wider fenders. M division says there won't be another 1M for awhile leading us to think this is possibly the next M Performance Auto car, likely to be a M135i.

The side profile of the F20 1 series with the wide fenders reminds me of the Z3 M Coupe. Does anyone else see that in the pictures above?

The nose is a little short, but that rear shot really does resemble it in the rear glass and roof shape to me.

I doubt it. Probably get the coupe version though. I really want the 3-door hatch.

If the US coupe is still going to be sold for another year, I'd think we'd get some kind of Performance Auto version to keep sales from tanking, like the ZHP package on late E46s.

If they bring it, I'd like to buy it. Definitely what I'm looking for.
