200-0 km/h in 135.9 m with warm brakes
av. fuel consumption: 13.9 litres/100 km

Verdict:
Both score 46 out of 60 pts., what makes the difference?

The BMW 135i shows as much potential as the Porsche Cayman when it comes to accerlation, braking etc ...

But both have different characters, the BMW 135i is not as sporty as the Cayman S as you can see at the hanling track and the Hockenheim short track, when it comes to driving dynamics the 135 cannot beat the Cayman.
