2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

I bought it without ever driving one based upon early reviews which described it as a car that strongly appeals to those of us 'seasoned' enough to appreciate the joys (and some sorrows) of early sports cars. I've owned MGTCs, 356 Speedsters, early SLs, and 911s. The 135i ragtop is a great modern compromise for a geezer who still loves the open road. It is pure joy to drive it, especially on a recent top-down tour through the Colorado Rockies. Power, responsiveness and handling do not disappoint!

Best Features

Power, handling and all round sportiness are favorite characteristics and fulfill my rationale for purchasing it.

Worst Features

Disappointing quality. So far,both tail lights and the 3rd stop-light assemblies plus a high pressure fuel pump have needed replacing. Thank God for the warranty coverage! Dump the Run-Flats! My 2nd set in 17k miles! Tire wear stinks! $400 to replace one unrepairable nearly new tire! Too costly!
