2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
I was looking for something fun to to drive and this IS IT! Drove G37, G35, TL-S, even a 335i. This is by far more responsive, fastest, and more enjoyable. Love the simple, but functional interior.
Looks, engine, handling, fun factor, and standard features like adjustable headlights, auto rain sensing wipers, awesome brakes... just too many to list.
Gas mileage is not great about 19 mpg avg, but good for a 300 hp monster. rear legroom. 6sp is little jerky going from 1st to 2nd due to CDV that BMW puts in. Service interval is questionable but free :)
