CAR recently undertook a premium hot hatch comparison, featuring the M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG and the Audi S3 (full review). Here’s how the trio stack up on paper:

The M135i serves up 320 HP and 332 LB-FT (450 Nm) from its 3 liter turbo N55 engine, mated to the 8 speed automatic ZF transmission and is RWD.

The Mercedes comes with the most power, but is also the most expensive out of this group, powered by a 360 HP / 332 LB-FT (450 Nm) 2-liter … CONTINUED

In this video review Autoexpress tests the BMW M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG – with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it’s going to be a stern rival for the BMW.

The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we’ve got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Autoexpress took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds.

To say that the BMW F20/F21 1 Series front end styling is polarizing would be an understatement. Initial reaction to the BMW 2 Series front styling, revealed last month in our spy photos, have generally been more favorable.

All of which begs the question – how would the F20/F21 look with all or some of the 2 Series’ front end styling? And might the renders below preview what the F20/F21 LCI facelift may resemble?

From 1ADDICTS member and M135i owner mjh93sa:

With increasing numbers of the M-Lite on the road, and ever more people taking delivery it seemed that is was time to put together a meet with the aim of getting a few together in the same place to act geeky, compare cars, options, mpg figures and so on (as well as have a bit of a drive).

So organised primarily by TMP, and some collaborative route planning we took on the welsh valleys … CONTINUED

Here’s a video demo.

The M135i Concept has debuted at the 2012 Geneva Motorshow. It previews the upcoming M135i, the next vehicle which will join the ranks of BMW’s new M Performance vehicle lineup (in addition to the already revealed M550d and X5/X6 M50d).
