2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I never thought I would fall in love with the entry level baby bimmer!! This car is quite capable of being considered an entry level M car. It's got more than plenty of power, agility, speed, and superior performance handling. If you want a nicely priced bang for you dollar this is it. It's a definitely in the "gotta have" car list. Although back seat is a bit cramped, but what do you expect on a "premium compact" coupe? Gas is not too bad at 26 highway. Great everyday car and always fun to drive. You have to test drive it and really drive it both normal and hard to appreciate it.
Turbo charged engine, paddle shifters, navigation, handling, sexy muscular look, and well balanced. Sound system is great for not upgrading to the premium sound price. Minimal options is best!!
Include alarm as a standard feature. Leave this car the way it is... perfect!!
