2011 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I was looking for a fun car with a convertible top and the 128 was just right.
Luckily found a certified 2011 with only 14K miles and got the price break and power train warranty to 100K.
A key factor was trunk space since I plan on using the car for trips in my retirement.
It will hold a 25 inch roller bag flat and a 22 on its side, and even more in the back seat - great for such a small car
I am an engineer and I am impressed with the build quality of this least expensive BMW.
The car is a delight to drive.
Ample power and a shiftable automatic (pull back to up shift - like a race car).
Engine sings a pretty song with the top down.
The optional rear windscreen makes top down running comfortable.
In-dash multi-disc CD player.
The run-flat tires seem to detract from the smoothness and handling, and I hope this technology will improve sine there is no room for a
spare. These are very small things - this is a great car!
