2015 BMW M135i
COLOUR: Metallic Grey
The M135i; rated as the best in class for years on end, receiving a 4.5 out of 5 stars by Dan Prosser in Evo magazine at the time of launch and still seen today as a performance car bargain, these cars have been highly regarded from the outset. With performance only 2 tenths of a second behind the outgoing E92 M3, with better economy and a much lower price tag, these cars offer stunning performance, fabled BMW handling and modern comforts at a price point that is hard to argue with.
From the first push of the start button, it is evident that these cars were designed to be driven, a raspy straight six bark emitted on cold start, which quietens right down to a buttery smooth and almost inaudible burble when cruising around town, revs smoothly taken care of by the frankly sublime ZF 8 speed automatic gearbox. Flick the car into sports mode and manual and it comes alive. The exhaust note is to die for, creamy smooth and purposeful, a masterpiece for a standard family hatchback! The car’s handling will not disappoint either, on its brand new PS4 tyres, the ride is as compliant as any luxury barge thanks to its light weight, but don’t let that fool you. Grip levels on the front axle on initial turn in make you wonder why this isn’t a fully-fledged M car, razor sharp adjustments that are pinpoint accurate with a quick rack for collecting slides. The brakes are also immense, so much power that you’re never likely to need more!
It really is the full package. Quiet and refined for the family and daily duties, but with tonnes of power and incredible handling and feedback levels for a modern car for Sunday drives and I’m sure it would handle track days with aplomb.
Fully machine polished and sat in our East Sussex showroom, the car presents like new, if not better. With only 29,000 miles on the clock, it is for all intents and purposes a new car. Full service history with BMW, two keys, unmolested and in standard spec and with only one former keeper on the logbook, it is as close to a brand new and perfect 135i LCI as you’re going to be able to find.
As mentioned above, the car has 4 brand new Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres. The brakes were bled by BMW in line with the service interval dated 10/03/2021, so the car is on the button and ready to enjoy. What a package this car is. Modern motoring nirvana?
