...vs. BMW 1 series

From what I understand the 135i is a wicked little car, but the 128i is beatable right. What do you think?

They look like they have about the same 1/4 mile, it'd be down to the driver.

the 1-series is just a smaller, lighter 3-series, so they are more dangerous in a race

Meh the one series is fat, I mean, we are talking within 200 lbs of the 3 series.

Unless you have the cash for a decently optioned 135i (40ish grand) I think you are better off with the GTI.

I dunno, I'm pretty sure the 135 could spank a GTI, stock for stock. Our redeeming feature is that we have pretty much all the features of a 135 and the power can be brought up to 135 level with ease.

All in all though, the 135 is a twin turbo inline 6 with RWD.... if I was a more irresponsible budgeter I may have had one of them parked in my driveway. The RWD just.... it makes it that much better.

Oh...the 135i would win hands down stock for stock. It wouldnt be much of a race. You missed the point of my post.

You get everything except the 300hp engine and RWD

You'd need a stage 3 just to compete, my friend has a stage 3 mkv GTI and I had a stock 335 at the time. We went head to head and I still beat him. Then I got a turbo tuner and that got me at 380 hp and tq and...... Damn I miss that phucken car

Run from a roll? Don't get how you would beat it any other way. Mid 13 second car stock. Thought stage 3 was faster than k04, and people with k04s are posting high 12 second 1/4.

The 135 is a sick car but a k04 gti would eat it with the right driver stock for stock forget it mod for mod forget it that's how it goes when your comparing two good engines of different sizes. My 0.2.....

stock 135 or 335 would beat any stage 2 Gti. I had 335i too. i know.. i raced with my friend's stage 2 mk6 before the lease return on my 335i. and it was a easy win... stage 3, then I dunno.. but remember, 135i is lighter than 335i by 200lbs, so it could be a good race between 135i and stage 3 GTi..
