1.5 Year Update
By Paul on


2008 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I have been leasing this car for about 1.5 years and I am severely disappointed. Since I began leasing the vehicle I had the fuel pump replaced, the interior trim is starting to chip off, I've had the rear brakes replaced and I am almost on my third set of tires. Free maintenance yeah right, the treadwear on the runflats is far below average and if you drive aggressively expect to pay more than $1200 a year in maintenance just on the tires. I have already begun to experience more problems with the car stalling and failing to start. The ipod hook up frequently has problems and my passenger seat belt warning goes off with a bottled water in the passenger seat.

Best Features

Engine. If you want a fast unreliable, uncomfortable track car then this is the car for you. It is not a daily driver.

Worst Features

Needs serious improvements in reliability and much better tires and computer system.
