128i vs 135i
By goldmund52 on
2011 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
If youíre torn between the 128i versus 135i, here is my opinion.
Over the years Iíve most enjoyed driving smaller cars with sporty suspensions and revvy engines with well-mated manual transmissions--- Volkswagen Rabbit, Acura Integra, Toyota MR2.
Then in the early 90ís I bought a Nissan 300ZX twin turbo.
I learned two things from that car.
One, a car that is overpowered for daily driving is not that much fun.
Two, turbo lag always feels unnatural.
The 128i is a fast car, more that powerful enough for fun street and mountain road driving, the gear ratios are fabulous and the throttle response is wonderful.
Unless 0-60 is your first priority the 128i is the better sports car.
