2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Just received my 135. It's the best car I've driven. I drove a wide range of cars ranging at all different price points up to over $100k. For $40k though, you can have one great performance car. I'd say the sports package is a must have. The iDrive takes some practice to get used to. The brakes are just amazing on the 1! 60 to 0 length is on par with far more exotic cars. Oh and one more thing, I think this car looks WAY better in person compared to photos.
M-steering wheel in sports package, brakes, engine power.
