BMW M135i 2019 drive








Drove this car this weekend. It's alright, not a true M drivers car though. I had more fun driving a 2019 Ford Fiesta ST.

They did not reserve 118i for a 4 cylinder. Why do you think you're better?

The new 118i is with 3-cylinders just like many modern cars. Nothing wrong with it.

Except you can hardly hear the nice 3-cylinder sound inside. I ask my local dealer if they could retrofit a symposer (Active Sound Design) to get some extra fake sound, but they could not do that. It was not on the option list when we bought the car either, so I don't know how you are supposed to get it.

It's not the worst of it's features yet, more precisely. The new "whatever badge they put on it" is just too much like many modern cars. This is what's very wrong with it.

You can't hear much in then new M135i either. But hey, you can always open the windows
I've driven Huyndai i130N as well and the car is sportier and louder than the M135i,.
