BMW 135i runs 0-60 in 4.7 seconds

Car and driver recently test drive the new BMW 135i and was able to squeeze out a 0-60 time of 4.7 seconds. I don’t think there was that much squeezing since Shrek part one came out. Yes, they ran 0-60mph in 4.7 seconds in the new BMW 135i. This is all so promising for the enthusiasts that said this was BMW’s new pocket rocket. The posted times from BMW were a mediocre and conservative 0-60mph in 5.2 seconds. Remember the BMW 335i, which has the same engine (twin turbo), had a posted time from BMW of 0-60mph in 5.3 seconds. Well, we know the 335i can do better than that but until now we were not too sure about the new BMW 135i. We look for tuners to take this car to a new level this year once they get their hands on one, or two, or three.

So it is your choice… the new BMW M3 for almost $60,000, the new 335i for over $40,000 or the new 300hp twin turbo BMW 135i starting at $34,900.

Here is an exclusive test drive of the new BMW 135i on Fifth Gear up against the Porsche Cayman. WOOT WOOT! This should be good! Just a note: their 0-62 time is WAY OFF! HA HA!

    Once the detailing has been completed you should make sure any minor flaws are repaired. It is also important that you have the service books and any relative mechanical history at the ready, as this is now becoming a critical factor when buying or selling a used vehicle. If a service is due or near due, make sure you have it done prior to selling. This will give a prospective customer an appreciation of how well you have kept your vehicle.

    Great movie. I think few people know how to drive this new type of car. In another website it lost a race against TTS cause the pilot couldn´t manage the car “in the corners” however it got a great advantage in straight line…
