BMW Car Magazine undertakes a fraternal twins rivalry comparison in pitting HP Autowerks’ BMW 1M coupe against its tuned 135i coupe.

The tuned 135i coupe is equipped with DCT transmission and tuned to be 400+ HP / 420 lb-ft torque with piggyback tune, intake tubing, M3 suspension arms/bushings, coilovers, and exhaust system.

So do all these upgrades to the tuned 135i make it ‘better’ than the factory 1M coupe? Read on inside to see how they compare.

Car and Driver pits the BMW E93 M3 coupe against what it calls the M3′s ultimate foe, the Mercedes C63 AMG coupe. Comparing the M3 to the pasty software engineer, Ken Jennings, who kept winning on Jeopardy, and whose success annoys some people by administering beat-downs on some of the world’s best cars, C/D drove from their editorial HQ in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to Virginia International Raceway (VIR) to find out if  the C63 AMG coupe is the M3’s real-estate agent from Ventura.

Car and Driver reviews the 2012 650i coupe and comes away impressed with its dual ability to serve up brawn and beauty, or “the drag and Las Vegas strips” as they call it.

The power 400hp 4.4L V8 of the 650i (which it shares with the 550i) paired with an 8 speed automatic transmission was able to give Car and Driver drivers an impressive 0-60mph time of 4.5 seconds and the quarter mile in just 12.9 seconds @ 112mph!

Here it is, the first of many F30 3-series vs. competitor shootouts we’re sure to see in the coming months. As the reigning king of sports sedans, the 3-series has a reputation to uphold and automotive publications will be most interested in seeing if the new 3 series sedan can fend off its competitors.

If this first comparison review is any indication, the answer will be an emphatic YES. The F30 trounces the Mercedes Benz C Class in this first shootout comparison. Autocar was not shy in its effusive praise of the F30, saying that it is the remarkable, standout car in its field, and by several lengths over the C-class.

Autospies shares their very comprehensive and excellent video review of the F30 328i, powered by the N20 4 cylinder 2.0L turbo engine. In their experience, they feel that the 3 series once again delivers a knockout punch to its competitors from Audi, MB, and Lexus.

Especially impressive in the video is a look at how quickly the new 8 speed automatic transmission shifts.
