The BMW 135i Coupé is the second most powerful coupé variant of the BMW 1 Series after the BMW 1 Series M Coupé. It is powered by a 3.0L turbocharged inline-six powertrain. Production started in 2007 and ended in 2011.
The BMW 135i Coupé appears in Need for Speed: Shift as a Tier 1 vehicle with a price tag of $35,000 and is unlocked by default. It is not capable of a Works conversion and has a Car Rating of 4.40.
The BMW 135i Coupé appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Modern Road vehicle with a price tag of $28,000. It has a D 400 performance rating and 3.03 handling rating.
The 135i Coupé has the most balanced performance to offer within its class; it can keep up with any high-performance Modern D car on both straight roads and corners. As a result, the BMW 135i can be very useful during an early to mid career progress in the Shift series.
The 135i Coupé in any version has slightly underpowered acceleration, which is average for a stock D Class vehicle. Another weakness of the car is the handling. These traits are somewhat counterbalanced by an above average nitrous boost and a high top speed.
The Blacktop style is a rental car that can be leased for 150. It was made available on September 28th, 2010.
