We bring you the very first photos of the F21 135i. We’ve previously spied a 135i 5-door hatchback (F20), but never the 135i 3-door hatchback (F21) as seen here. In fact, F21 sightings in general have been rare.

The F21 is set to be revealed as early as Spring 2012. Expect to see more powerful engines (compared to the F20 1 series 5-door) introduced with the F21. To name a few, we expect a 125i 2.0l turbo inline 4 producing in the ballpark of 220hp and a 125d to complement the 116i, the 118i and the 120d.

M135i ?

As we reported recently, we would not be surprised if BMW went with a “M135i” moniker for this car to form part of the first group of M Performance Automobiles … CONTINUED

For months now, there have been signs and clues pointing to the potential release of several M tuned BMW models which will create a new category of models to fill the gap between the standard series cars and their M versions. It’s now just been officially announced by BMW M! See inside for BMW M’s full official announcement.

So what rumored models can we expect to launch this new category of BMWs? The following three rumored models should all come with the criteria just announced by BMW M for its new M Performance cars category — extra power, tuned handling, and M visual enhancements.

There is the M550d, which was first discovered on the label of a new BMW brake pad package (pictured left). The M550d … CONTINUED

Happy New Year to the entire BIMMERPOST community! As we cross over to a new year it’s a fitting time for a recap of the past year.

And we’ll be seeing some new models and facelifts coming. We recap the BMW 2011 year for you inside.

The F21 1 series 3-door hatchback has now been revealed via this set of patent images.

The F21 is set to be revealed as early as Spring 2012. Expect to see more powerful engines (compared to the F20 1 series 5-door) introduced with the F21. To name a few, we expect a 125i 2.0l turbo inline 4 producing in the ballpark of 220hp and a 125d to complement the 116i, the 118i and the 120d.

As expected, the F21 features a sportier look owing to the longer doors and rear windows, as well as frameless windows. Just like the F20 5-door 1 series, the F21 won’t be available in the US.

From the same Dutch BMW dealer presentation which yielded the 381hp tri-turbo diesel M550d rumor, comes the report that a “M135i” F20 1 series hatchback is coming next summer. Those in attendance were reportedly told about a M135i featuring 320hp and powered by the N55 inline 6 engine.

As with any rumor, it’s always just speculation until officially published by BMW. But, there may be merit to this rumor. We spotted what appears to be an M Sport 135i F20 some months ago (seen HERE), so we wouldn’t be surprised if BMW actually went with the “M135i” moniker for that car if they in fact also went with the “M550d” rumor for the upcoming tri-turbo diesel F10.

Also, at the F30 press drives last week, BMW told us … CONTINUED
