2011 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Have put ~6K on the car in just two months and have had no problems. The 135i handles like a go-kart, has a silky smooth manual, is comfortable on long hauls, and oh, the sound of 300, 300 when the "go" pedal is mashed! MPG just about 23 overall.
The engine/trans combination; handling; exterior design.
Cup holders are, in short, goofy with one unusable when storage console is in "down" position; stereo is, at best, "low rent" for a vehicle in this price range (wife's MB C350's stereo is 10x better).
