2008 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I had a Z4 previously and loved it, but overall I like the 1er better. Meets or exceeds every one of my expectation. The 128i is plenty fast and is more practical than the 135i. The 135i is almost stupid fast and very few drivers will be able to get more than 30% out of what the car is capable of.
Fav features are the step tranny, the windblocker, the sweet engine, the extra driver/passenger legroom, the overall small exterior dimensions.
