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

Review

I've been driving my '09 128i since October of 2010.
In that 2.5 years I've only put about 17-18,000 miles on it.
I make a lot of short trips so my average mpg of about 18 is a little disappointing but not real surprising.
The car is a little hard-riding and the stock seats are not particularly supportive or comfortable.
Those are probably my two main complaints with the car.
Reliability is a concern, too: replaced the lifters, the a/c evaporator, the radio, the third stop light, etc. Thankfully this has all been cheerfully replaced under warranty. This is all balanced by the gem of an engine, good visibility, good looks, solid handling, etc.
I do love the little, fat, steering wheel!

5/20/2016: Edmunds wants an update, ok. I sold the car last fall, and I'm not sorry to have parted company with it. I got tired of the occasionally harsh ride and uncomfortable seats. Reliability remained an issue -- I'll spare you the details -- so I think selling it and getting into a Lexus was a good choice for me.
