Clarkson on the 135i
surprising review from JC

"The fact of the matter is this. The 135 coupé is the best car BMW makes. I have no hesitation at all, then, in giving this long-awaited return to form the rare accolade of five stars."

AutoExpress have published a very positive update to their 120d long term test - including a visit to the Nürburgring Nordschleife

Another good 130i review
BMW Car Magazine also gave the 130i a good review.

They have a breakout about the SE, and say that even though BMW told them it had exactly the same suspension as the MSport one, it appeared to ride much better.

130i in Auto Express...
they love it... gave it 4 stars!! they also say the Alfa 147 is its main rival... it states that the 130i is in a class of its own... i agree

Modded 1 Series - Performance BMW
The August edition of Performance BMW Magazine has a good article on a 120D Sport with some minor mods.

18" BBS Alloys
Cool AC Schnitzer Exhaust (I want one)
A few other bits and pieces.

I dont have a scanner at the moment so you will have to buy the mag!

Hartge H1 test
The new BMW Car mag (I think ) has a road test of the Hartge H1, you know, the 1 with the 450bhp V8.

A very brief resume of the test:

They liked the body kit but not the wheels.
Brakes (non standard) good.
Performance out of this world.
188mph tops.
Grip excellent (225 front, 255 rear).
Handling ok, but affected by the extra weight in the nose.
Scary in the wet as no traction control fitted.

But they would have one if they had the money.
