Great CPO bargin

2008 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

This is a 128i stripper with a manual. It has ample room for 2 people or 4 on a quick lunch run. Fold down back seat and reasonable trunk opening allows hauling good sized cargo. It has expected BMW handling, good acceleration and also is a smooth highway cruiser, except for run flat tire noise. The acceleration is OK, not thrilling. It makes a satisfying growl at WOT. Wide torque curve and slick transmission makes a great combination for moving thru traffic and for sporty curve work. Base interior has very cheap looking and feeling plastic. More Aveo than BMW. The large adjustment knob for manual seats is exactly where your foot goes when cruise control is on. Track day soon

Favorite Features

Smooth torquey six. Slick manual transmission. Very good handling/ride combination. Fold down rear seats allows me to carry my bike inside. Low mileage CPO and not the most popular model means a nearly new BMW for Honda money.

Suggested Improvements

Base interior needs an upgrade. Manual seat adjustment is poorly thought out. Way too much brake dust. I join almost every owner in saying get rid of the run flats.
