Photos of the BMW 1-Series

BMW 1-Series Photos: BMW 135is front

From this angle the 135is is generic BMW, just narrower and a touch taller.

Check out the bend in that rocker panel. A fun car to photograph.

With the aggressive fascia and big wheels, looks athletic.

Flame surfacing in doors bends a white line.

LeMans Blue suits the 135is well, wet or dry.

If a political cartoonist drew a 3-Series...

The 135is appears stubbiest when viewed from the side. Not much sidewall.

Not as classic as a Pagoda SL?

Do the exhaust tips stick out a bit much?

How about now?

Lots of glass.

Very BMW. Blue stitching a welcome touch. Textured aluminum trim also nice.

Clean and functional.

Without nav, no iDrive. Everything is close at hand. Climate controls easy, radio controls not.

Comfortable and supportive, seats don't get much better.

At 5-9, I can fit somewhat comfortably. You can do far worse in a compact coupe.

Like the rear seat, serviceable. Could be worse.

Smooth, sweet, and powerful. (Though the sport exhaust can be overly vocal in casual driving.)
