I've never really looked a bimmers because, well for one, they are really expensive. However, I know they are amazing to drive (my dad has an '02 M5) and have recently been considering selling my '06 WRX and getting a '04 or '05 M3. Then... the mags started testing the new BMW 135i:
Base price: a little under $36,000
1/4 mile: 13.3 @ 106mph
The STI has always been one of the best "bang for the buck" cars out there, but now it seems that one of the MOST unlikely companies (BMW) has perhaps even outdone Subaru! Plus, you get a longer warranty (4/50) and free maintenance for 4yrs/50k. I was just wondering what some of the other WRX/STI enthusiasts thought of this new baby bimmer??
