They say things like its not a full M car. Well correct
They say its ugly. Well correct, it ain't going to win any beauty contents
They said it has a low spec. Hmm not so sure, but the 1er is missing lots of things the 330d has as standard.

So can't say I am that fussed, as in all the good press, its had there had to be one bucking the trend!
I only wished it looked considerably more appealing inside and outside. There is more to a car as an everyday tool than just having a 'sling-shot' of an engine. I am sure the 135iM is a very good car. But it is not a great car. The F20s lack the 'je ne sais quoi' of the F30s. The F10s also do, but to a lesser extent. The F30s are great cars for now. But they are still only cars!
