2009 BMW 1 Series Convertible 128i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The 128i is a cute car and should be an economical option to someone that wants to drive a BMW. However, there is a problem with the CD player, a replacement isn't available right now and there is no known date when one will be available. In addition, there are flaws in the dash board (which BMW won't warranty against rattles when replaced) and 2 recalls notices.


Best Features

Ease of use of retractable top.


Worst Features

Have a replacement CD player available so vehicle operates as sold and an agreement to stand behind warranty repairs including dash boards.

2009 BMW 1 Series Convertible 128i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The car is small and very fun to drive. The 128i engine has plenty of power. Very comfortable seats (sport option). The rear seats have more room that you may think, and gave to the car a great practical aspect. Trunk space also is not too bad, but it is a fun car. Inside noise, with top up or down is very low. No annoying rattles. Fuel economy: just ok. Fuel tank is small. The Ipod option works well.


Best Features

Driving in town top down, or in small country roads. For small trip, you can have your friends in the back, and they will not complain.


Worst Features

Size of the fuel tank.

2009 BMW 1 Series Convertible 128i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Fun car to drive...glad I went with the manual transmission..corners perfect and had up to 110mph with still pedal left...convertible has very good acoustics with top up...I'd buy it again and I looked and drove all of the competitors...buy it.


Best Features

The learn drive feature...it's great...great acceleration...would not spend the extra dollars for the 135i...if I was on the autobahn maybe...but in the US no need...


Worst Features

cannot read radio display with polarized glasses...annoying...

Review

This was my first convertible, and I couldn't have been happier. Before purchasing this car, we looked into and/or test drove the Lexus IS (convertible coming soon), Audi A4, and Volkswagen Eos. Nothing was as attractive as the BMW. We test-drove both the 135i and 128i convertibles and decided on the 128i because it was cheaper, had a softer suspension, and was more than fast enough. The handling is fantastic, and the car feels very responsive, nimble, surefooted, fast, and comfortable. It looks beautiful in jet black, sporty but elegant, classy but youthful. It is absolutely worth it. It is hard to find faults with this car.


Best Features

Handling! The sounds of the exhaust. Soft top. Iphone adapter. Heated seats for the Boston winter.


Worst Features

None. Perfect car.
