    Bmw 135i Small Car - Big Fun — Small cars are always fun! Especially with a bombshell under the hood in a rear wheel drive format! DCT tears through the gears adding to the driving experience of an already well balanced vehicle. 53/47 weight distribution but a thrill to put sideways in the corners. 2 + 2 format makes it a fairly convenient car when needing to carry passengers and more spacious than even an audi A5. Not to mention BMW makes the best seats in the business as well. Trunk space is top of the line for a small car like this and is quite a practical little guy for your daily driver or grocery needs. Limited wheel fitment makes finding wheels difficult. BMW really should have included a LSD with any cars that exceed 300hp such as this. It is a BMW and as such will cost more then most JDM or Asian cars to maintain and fix in certain situations. It is still among the more reliable cars and my 1st choice for German automotive makers when maintenance cost and reliability is in the conversation.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Power!
    DCT transmission available and a fun Manual.
    2 + 2 format and trunk space

    Cons: Limited wheel fitment.
    Needs a Limited Slip Diff
    Maintenance can cost more than JDM
