Recommended Posts

Ill get one, one of these days. Not a fan of the black but it ticks all the other boxes. Bloody good price considering the upgrades done.

Not a fan of the quad exhausts, its only a hatchback, doesnt need that much thrust.  Hopefully that carbon vinyl comes off easily too..

 

Rest looks very nice, and low ks, and no PDC in the boot to flood and short :D

N54/55 way more power and potential for even more power... every other department N52 is a nicer engine. Way better balanced in a hatch as well as is 50odd kg lighter.

i know of course more power, but the sound of the NA.. man miss my 130i..

my M135i doesnt compare for pure engine/exhaust sound to be honest..

Yeah but you dont get a hell of a lot of 135/335 for 15k compared to the car in the OP.

You do for $25k, which is a pretty sharp price for what you get I reckon:

Still 10k more than the car in the OP.... Oh, and its an poxy auto, and doesnt have an LSD or suspension mods of the OP... wait, why is this even a comparison?

I found the same, but not with the Coupe 😃. The door is about 2 inches longer, and I don't hit my head on the roof....

 Sound is good, performance is better. Too easy.

So... if you had $15k to spend and wanted fun (or 4 exhausts) then this would be at/near the top of the list. Of course, if you were all about pace you'd go a 335 and hope it didn't lunch itself (cos you'd have nothing left for maintenance/upgrades).

cant get any decent msport 335 for 15k anyway these days. there are some early 2006-2008 non msport ones for sub 15k but most are on 100+kms

There is another blue 130i manual on tm for 12k with 100+kms. plenty of fun for sure!

That 130i would be way more fun the drive on a decent road with those upgrades and it being overly powerful. At 15k id take the reliability and the upgrades over the extra power .

Haha you mean single turb0o0o0o or have you converted yours to twin? That 130i would be plenty of fun for sure and is a lot of car for the money. The one thing i wish the 135i/335i's came with from factory is an LSD

Its quite frankly a bit crazy they didnt, considering the power output, and the target market of "performance". Even an MSport 130i shouldve had an LSD standard.

a 130 would be awesome.a 120d was quite a lot of fun.....genuinely nice steering and braking a 130 prolly wouldnt be much heavier(if at all )but with more top end
