2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


What a lovely and potent little coupe. A true driver's car, taut, precise, nimble and all those other accolades one can conjure for a superlative German performance car. The car corners like it was on rails with no discernible body roll. Absolutely NO turbo lag anywhere on the power curve which is nothing short of a miracle. I have found nothing to dislike about this car whatsoever after 1700 miles. Of course the mileage is mediocre at best (16.5 city, 22-25 highway) but I knew that going in. Fit and finish are superb and the cockpit is both comfy & functional as a true Germanic driving machine should be. Instruments are well placed and easy to use. No iDrive = no complaints. A superb car.

Best Features

Zero turbo lag, power on tap from the bottom to the top of the RPM spectrum. Great clutch, very responsive brakes and the perfect sport suspension for this rocket. I find the body very appealing although I understand others may not. Never liked red, but the sedona red is very subtle and attractive.

Worst Features

A magic wand to make it get 30 mpg city.
