My new Melbourne Red F40 M135i

This week I took delivery of my new M135i BMW after a test drive I was really impressed with the car handling and performance coming from a 320d, this was refreshing and fantastic to drive.

I'm looking forward to enjoying this and hopefully bumping up the power figures just a little bit

Really? We couldn't get any small xDrive cars until these new models arrived.

WHY don't we get these cool cars in the US?!? My fiance would love one of these, but we are very very limited in terms of hatches.

Love the car, it's beautiful!

An X1 is not an M135i.

You said 1 series and x 1 is base off 1 series. So there you go.

Thanks Guys! It's definitely not an F40 ��.. but I looked at all colours and to me I thought the red looked the best.

The front end is my least favourite angle of the car.

I saw this video by racechip and really liked the tune. The tune does not add a lot of power in comparison to the M140i however the car seems quicker than the numbers suggest.

The X2 is pretty much a lifted 1 hatchback and comes in M35 trim also

So you can't tell a car from a ... "car". BMW should love you as a customer!
