2008 BMW 135i review

           The 135i is briskly motivated by a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower and an incredible 300 lb-ft of torque from as low as 1,400 rpm. With its direct piezo gasoline injectors, twin low-mass turbochargers and air-to-air intercooling, optimum performance and economy is achieved with no loss in engine response. For the 135i Coupe, acceleration from 0-62 mph is 5.3 seconds and top speed is electronically limited to 155 mph.
            The 135i displays phenomenal pickup in both second and third gears. The low-pressure turbo chargers assist the 3-liter engine in catapulting the car forward with a surprising lack of lag, and from 2,000rpm and higher, the acceleration is instant and linear. After a tap of the brakes, we turned into turn 3: the 135i tracks superbly in cornering at around 30 mph, and after brushing the apex we buried the gas pedal for the straightaway to turn 4. This stretch gave us another chance to experience the 135i's whirlwind acceleration, and we found ourselves approaching 80 mph before having to track left, touch the brakes and aim for the right-hand apex. We took turn 4 about 60 mph, tracking from left to right on the way through. The 135i's sports suspension can be unforgivingly harsh on the road, but for high-speed cornering it works extremely well, delivering a firm, sure-footed line. 
           The innovative interior design incorporates high-quality and sophisticated trim elements with luxurious upholstery and color choices. The control console for the entertainment and air conditioning functions is integrated smoothly and harmoniously into the dashboard through its soft radii and flowing surfaces. The Controller featured in the optional iDrive control system is integrated to the center console, again following
