hot like fire.
Aside from the grille/headlights, I don't find it particularly exciting body wise. Even the wheels give it an econobox look. :2cents:
Those are the econobox wheels though.
I have a feeling that when these cars get a facelift mid production run they will be much tastier.
17mpg city lol
for 41k I wouldnt buy it, but im just biased to puke every time I see a Chris Bangle designed BMW
It's alright, but nothing special. I can't see why anyone would pay $35,000 for a Bavarian Accord.
The poor-man's BMW. :laughing:
That does 0-60 in 4.7 seconds.
Zalight f uck you I'm still waiting.
I want the Tii, they should make it :cussing:
They did...once upon a time...
yep you can see pictures of a 1973 2002 tii in that set of pictures as well. Cleeeaaaannnn as hell.
I meant the new one. As in, mass produce, not just a one-off.
Are you talking about the one tii they made recently brand new? The one that is exactly the same as the original?
Never heard of it...
This is what I was talking about: http://www.worldcarfans.com/5050726.001/bmw-2002-tii-old-into-new
The 335 Coupe is about $6,000 more than the 135...why would I want a 135 over a 335 Coupe?
You wouldnt have that kinda money anyway :thumbs:
Smaller, lighter, faster. Not much in every category, true, but how often
do you get those options for less money? :wink2:
I prefer the one series to the three for what it delivers: A modern interpretetion of the classic 2002/E30 layout. It's actually about the same size as the E21/E30 and a bit smaller then the E36. It may be heavy for a small car, but it's over 300 lbs lighter than the lightest new 3 series, and that twin turbo I6 engine is outstanding.
To me, it looks chunky and purposeful, with the taller greenhouse of the earlier BMWs.
You guys have never seen this thing? :screwy:
I've seen it and I knew what you were talking about originally, but I doubt they are going to produce it.
Which is why I said I wish they would.
Here's how I feel...
135 Curb Weight: 3373 lbs.
335 Curb Weight: 3571 lbs.
Their curb weights mean little to me, but you can see that the 135 isn't that much lighter. Considering the huge drop-off in looks and "prestigiousness", the 135 SHOULD be much lighter. Offer something. The BMW 335 looks its price tag, the 135 doesn't (to me). I'd much rather buy the more elegant, equally fast 335 for a little more coin and expect a higher resale value.
Ah, resale. I never buy a car based on who else might want it later. of
course, I rarely buy new, and let someone else take that depreciation hit.
From what I've found, the 1 series weighs 300 lbs less, not 200, which is almost substantial. Not huge, but I like the size and proportions a little better, as it's closer in concept to what the small BMW is supposed to be. It's also quicker and handles as well, so you're really getting more (except outside dimensions and weight) for your lower dollar figure. More performance, less money, what's not to like (other than personal feelings about the looks, and I like the looks of the one series).
I think What is right to some extent. I do think the 1 should be more
distinguished from the 3 in wieght and price. It's a whole class lower!
But Chris has a point as well...there's no denying that the 1 still gives you more for less.
I guess this is what happens when put the nicest engine in two different classes without changing it much :laughing:
We got a 128i Cabrio in today. Its...ok. I'm still waiting on the 135i
What surprised me is the engine bay is exactly the same as a 328i. Locations, covers, airbox, reservoirs, etc. They look like the exact same plastic.
edit: That tii concept is a sexy beast.
