BMW M135i (2013 F20 fourth generation)

BMW 135i

5 Pros

  1. The BMW M135i is terrific fun around corners and incredibly fast in a straight line. The key to its fun factor is the rear wheel drive layout which is rare in a hot hatch (most are front wheel drive)
  2. Good boot space and enough room in the back for 2 adults (just…)
  3. Built in Germany, unlike the South African built BMW 3 Series
  4. 5 out of 5 star safety
  5. A surprisingly comfortable ride for a sports car

5 Cons

  1. The ugly stick…
  2. Much more expensive than the very good Renautl RS 265, Ford Focus ST, Volkswagen Sciorocco R and Opeal Astra OPC (and in a completely different time zone to the latest hero car, the $30k Toyota 86)
  3. Poor rear visibility and the cabin quality does not feel $70k worth
  4. $3.5k extra for Sat Nav
  5. Reports of slight turbo lag

Concluding personality type: Private Jet: Fast and exclusive (but at a cost)
