2009 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)

Review

While motoring over 60mph in 6th gear (~2,500rpm) a swift thrust of the right pedal puts you over 100mph in the blink of an eye, the twin turbo moves without effort, when starting from zero, you'll have to switch to second way before the you see the tacho grazing the redline, as 1st gear will be over before you figure out you're getting close to 7k! I gave it a 9 on performance because there are more powerful cars, not in any way because the power is any less than excellent.

Favorite Features

Looks, engine, roughish drive, fits like a glove, electronics (iPod, bluetooth, etc.), engine sound, the way the manual tranny lever vibrates while idle!!

Suggested Improvements

Less traffic, more roads, work farther from home, minimum speed limits. Ha!
