When you are next to the fellow at the stoplight, and he wants to race,roll down your window and say to the fellow,eeee gaagggs!! so for 335i owners or soon-to-be owners like myself...we have to look forward to getting mashed on by 1-series!!
myself, i'm a bit old for that racing scene, but to think that i could be stopped at a light and up pulls a 135i with a 22 yr old at the wheel grinning/revving/grinning. :tsk:
So the 120d is $30k, while a 328i is $32.4k? That's way more car AND engine for 2.4k. I think the low-end 1 series will end up starting around 28-29k. But that's just my opinion. :dunno:$35k base for a 135i, $40k nicely equipped.
The cheapest 1 series which is the 120d ? is $30k. I can't see the 135i being all that cheap.
