2010 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
... are moaning in their graves at the standard sound system. It lacks power, the little speakers in the doors sound like transistor radios, and the player always defaults to radio, so you get a blast of static or commercial noise whenever you start the car or eject a CD. (Last year's standard system included 10 speakers; in 2010 I count six.) The weak dollar apparently has caused BMW also to eliminate last year's standard moonroof. So the price point has been maintained, but you get less car. That said, it is a sharp little machine, my first BMW.
Favorite Features
The car feels tight in your hands. It seems almost to "know" your driving intentions. And the automatic wipers and headlights are conveniently intuitive. Accelerating and braking are smooth. Visibility is good. Driver's seat, firm and comfortable. Fine little car for one or two people.
Suggested Improvements
BMW should listen to the Bose sound system in a ten-year-old Nissan Maxima then give the 128 comparable treatment. Also, the driver needs a convenient place to store a handful of CDs. Finally, BMW should include floor mats so customers don't have to play frustrating games with dealers.
