3 series, making the 135 the king of screens in its class.
phenomenal Mercedes Benz A45 AMG and the BMW M135i, how can we compare the two super-hatches? Both were designed for city driving, and car enthusiasts in mind.
Cost of Ownership:
The car itself is not cheap, but ownership should be fairly balanced due to its simplicity and BMW's experience with this engine. Efficient Dynamics does wonders to fuel economy, but I would imagine rear tires will need frequent replacement.
The car has sacrificed its looks for practicality and hatches do not get more spacious than this. On top of that it has very functional and comfortable interior worthy of a tourer.
As with any BMW, everything in this car is where you want it to be. Ride is smooth and comfortable. There are no vibrations that can be witnessed with a four cylinder engine.
This is where the car is lagging behind. I call it the Subaru of Munich. Owning a car like this is nothing short of awesome, but it's best to be kept in dark garage so you won't have to look at it as you approach it.
This is what this car is all about: pure and simple fun. When you drive this car, not its looks, not the luxuries, not even your destination matters, it's only about pure joy and excitement, and that's where BMW have once again proven that when it comes to delivering pure driving machines, they set the benchmark.
I would like to thank Abe Motors for letting me drive and photograph their cars.
BMW M135i is available from BMW Japan starting from 5500000 Yen.
