Almost a great car

2009 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Got my 135 coupe with 10k miles on it. Love the way the car drives and handles. Excellent manual transmission but this has been a heartbreak car. Reliability has been poor. Within three months, fuel pump went out then the tail light went out. Dealer failed to fix it the first time. Lots of creaks and rattles when road isn't perfectly paved. Handles well but there is more body roll than I expected. Also, heater puts out cool air from the vents except on highest setting.
Acceleration, manual transmission are great.
Reliability - I don't trust this car. Make sure the heater puts out warm air, in the center vents, not just the footwell and defrost vents.
