2008 BMW 135i: Not Every Detail is Perfect

May 23, 2008

So our 135i drives great. Flawless engine, smooth shifter, blah, blah, blah. Letís get to the real important stuff. Are you seeing that dash trim?.. Doesn’t really fit right does it? Sure, it’s on there good and tight, but clearly it was designed for another dashboard. Can’t blame BMW for reusing a few parts to keep costs down, but maybe it should have picked a piece of trim that wasn’t right in the driver’s line of sight. It looks shoddy, and when you just dropped $37K on a new coupe that’s not good.
