    BMW 130i. Not fast enough? Better wait for the 135ti

    This car is going to be FAST!

    Source: http://www.worldcarfans.com/country.cfm/country/gcf

    It canít be named M1



    This is going to be the ultimate sports-hatch by packing an extra 50+ bhp over the current BMW 130 or VW Golf R32.

    Munich would love to call the car M1, but that would take away the glory from the legendary late 1970ís M1 supercar, so the range-topping 1-Series will have to do with a 135ti badge on the rear, hinting to the sophisticated 3.0-litre turbo engine delivering no less than 306 bhp!

    Itís just been presented in the 3-Series coupe and should be able to turn the 1-Series into a real cannon ball on wheels.

    I hope the 135ti will have one exhaust on each side like the 335i, and not like this:

    I saw one in a Walmart parking lot in Chandler, AZ about two weeks ago. With Mexican license plates. I've got a few pictures of it on my cell phone camera.

    Stick that powerplant into the 2 series and I could see a LOT of people jumping ship to BMW from Mercedes and other Luxury marques.

    Couple of chops.

    can you imagine what a sub-$20K car could do to bimmer appeal?
    I think it would kill it. I for once wouldn't consider it as upscale as now.

    What i'm trying to say is that if bentley were to make a $30K convertible and every Joe on the block could buy it, then why the hell would i bother spending 150K on a bentley?
