Great Car... Really
By gman on
2009 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
We've had this car a few months. Overall the best car we've ever owned. BMW service is the same as with a car for $100k, so you feel like a king! Sport package is the way to go, car grips the road and never lets go. 128i is way over powered, you will for sure get a ticket. Driver and front passenger seating with power seats is great. Back seat is terrible for bigger folk. Good only for kids or the dog. We like the small size of the car for zipping around town and out to the lake. Good ride quality. We have a squeak in the back seat. We are addressing this build issue with BMW. BMW has treated us well so far, but we are headed back for a second try for the repair.
Six speed auto with shifters (Sport Package) Auto seats with memory TOP DOWN! SUN UP! Strong engine, smooth shifting when in auto. COOL SP MODE No-maintenance Color (Red) and Light color pleather interior Ride & sport exhaust (took some getting use to the exhaust). Lots of turned heads and questions.
Better back seat comfort. Make more room for wide shoulders. Muffler is a little loud at low RPM. Not a problem if you are speeding... Run Flat tires are very expensive.
