2011 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Review
My 2011 128i Convertible has 8,000 miles with nary a problem. Changed the run-flats to Contintental DWS regular tires the first week and it was like driving a completely different car--much better ride. Comfortable seats and just a blast to drive. In some ways better than the 3 series--top down at least you have some useable trunk space with the 128. Almost went for the 135, but I'm happy with the power of the 128--engine sometimes lugs a bit taking off, but slap the transmission over to sport mode and it compensates and puts you into the sweet spot of the torque curve and takes care of the issue. Nimble handling. One of the most fun cars I've ever had.
Favorite Features
Great ride without the run-flats. Nimble handling. Comfortable seats. Just plain fun to drive. Useable trunk space with top down. Surprisingly useable back seats for all but the largest adults.
Suggested Improvements
Stock stereo is poor. Gas mileage is poor. Using run-flats is dumbest decision BMW ever made--switch to decent regular tires and you'll get vastly improved ride, plus better handling. Car would be even better if BMW would use some aluminum and shave a couple of hundred pounds in weight.
