BMW M modifies some models without them being considered M-Cars, although they may feature M badges. M cars have badges with the model number, except the M Coupe and the M Roadster, which have it on the trunk without being accompanied by numbers. M-badged accessories are available on standard BMW cars or on cars with the optional M Sport Package. Models that present the badge can have M-tech upgrades on their appearance, brakes and suspensions, unlike the true M vehicles, except the Z line. Over the last few years, BMW created a range between M cars, named M Performance range and M upgraded cars.

The 2013 BMW M135i Coupe and the Z4 sDrive35is are somewhere between the M cars and the normal models. The M135i is the most powerful vehicle of the second-generation 1-series. It is powered by a 3.0-liter inline-six M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology engine with 320-hp at 5,800 rpm that delivers a maximum torque of 332 lb-ft at 1300 rpm. The 2013 BMW M135i Coupe goes from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds with the automatic transmission, and with the manual in 5.1 seconds. The powerful engine is paired with electromechanical power steering.

The M135i uses M dampers, springs, variable steering with Servotronic and 18″ wheels. Incredible braking power is delivered by the two-piston rear and our-piston front calipers with very large rotors. The steering, brakes and suspensions perform beautifully, allowing the driver to brake late and quickly charge through a turn. The Michelin Pilot Sport tires especially developed for the M135i have a tremendous grip.

The 2013 BMW M135i Coupe has an aggressive design with the 18-inch wheels with 245/35 rubber in the rear and 225/40 up front, large front air intakes that replace the fog lamps and an M-style front bumper. The high-performance sport exhaust system comes with dual tips. This car is special due to its unique body kit and because it is the only only rear-wheel-drive car with manual transmission in the group. On the interior, the M135i has features that are available only with the standard M Sport package, including an M steering wheel, stainless steel pedals, red-highlighted instrumentation and sport Alcantara seats that can be ordered with blue contrast stitching.
