Hi guys : M135i
#1
Hi guys,
Nice forum!

Will possibly be buying my first BMW in 2 weeks time wen the sale of my current car (Honda Type R) goes through.
Test drove a white manual one and was instantly impressed. Power and the drivers feel you get, similar to my current Type R with just double the power.

Choices between a white and blue.
Also what comes standard with the M135i? Is rear pdc standard? Leather seats?

Thinking of only going for a manual with sunroof and xenons?

Any advise or thoughts welcome

Howzit dude, firstly welcome to the forum and enjoy the stay.
I have a 6MT M135i and I can assure you it's a great choice you making.
You definitely need Xenons,
Standard is Hifi Sound with BMW professional radio
, anthracite roof lining, high gloss black trim,
Blutooth and USB, hands free calling,
Auto leveling head lights n rain sensor wipers etc.
leather is not standard and some trim options which you might consider .
Pdc is also not standard.

Thanks Sanesh!!
I see lotsa guys choose the auto over the manual. Glad to see u chose the manual, just so I can ask if there's any reason u went for the manual?
Any pics of ur ride?

I'm not really willing to order one due to the long waiting period so will see what is available at the dealers new with the closest spec I want.

Thanks bud

But the auto is faster Fencelook

Just pulling your leg, It would be a tough decision choosing between auto and manual because modern autos are just that good.

I agree the xenons are a must.

Either way you're still getting an epic car.

Sure the AT is 0.2sec quicker, but this was my first "fast car" , so I wanted a 6MT.

It was pre-ordered by dealer, so soon as you see it, you know then and there if that's what you want.

Hi M135i welcome!

See link for options and standard equipment. Any questions, just ask, I pretty much have all of them on my car after researching each one !Rollsmile

A word of warning, the alcantara (its like suede) seats that come as standard are awesome as they're so different from the usual black leather I've had on countless other cars. BUT it does not stand up to heavy usage, cold drink spills and so on. If you have kids especially (or messy passengers!) go for the optional leather.

Very nice! Congrats!

What interior has she got?
Those cloth/alcantara m-sport seats are In-love

Just a question for all M135i owners, I've never seen a grey or black one come to think about it, lots of white/ebII and a couple red ones,

do they sell them in mineral/space grey or black?
