About BMW 135i
The BMW 135i was never the most powerful or luxurious car in BMW’s lineup, nor was it the most visually appealing. However, as our friends at The Smoking Tire recently demonstrated, if you’re looking for a used sports coupe, the 135i should be one of your top options. The BMW 135i is a steal when you consider everything you get for your money.
The 135i belongs to BMW’s 1 Series, which is the smallest but least expensive model group in the entire BMW lineup. It’s nearly nine inches shorter than the 3 Series at the time, and a few inches shorter at the wheelbase, making it one of the lightest, smallest, quickest, and most affordable sports coupes in the lineup.
The BMW 135i accelerates to 60 mph in about 5 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph. The 135i comes standard with 18-inch performance wheels and a suspension system that is sporty but smooth over bumps. The BMW 135i is light on its feet and designed to transition quickly between tight corners and fast straightaways. Top speeds in the small and nimble 135i never feel risky.
The BMW 135i is available with either of two potent engines. The 3.0-liter twin-turbo engine is found in models produced between the model years of 2007 and 2010, while the 3.0-liter single-turbo engine was used for models produced between the model years of 2010 and 2013. In either case, the 135i is capable of producing 302 horsepower and 296 pound-feet of torque. If you get the sport package, the 135is, you’ll be able to generate 317 pound-feet of torque.
For model years 2007 through 2010, BMW offered customers the choice between a six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic transmission. After 2010, drivers had the option of selecting either a six-speed manual transmission or a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission for their vehicles. In order to reduce the amount of wear that is put on your drivetrain, the differential uses ball bearings that can reach their operating temperature more quickly and continue to function at lower temperatures.
With the 135i, you don’t have to sacrifice size for comfort. Despite being one of the smallest BMWs available, the driver seat is spacious, with plenty of headroom. BMW enthusiasts enjoy the standard suspension in the BMW 135i as well. The BMW 135i comes standard with a sport suspension that is firm on impact and allows for razor-sharp steering that racers crave. Even an optional aerodynamic kit, including a more chiseled front end and a trunk lid spoiler, became standard with the 135i.
