Traded in a Volvo S60R chipped to about 340hp.
I've been driving the 128i for six months and don't miss the power.
This car is a pleasure to drive in all situations.
I needed a car that would keep me sane during rush hour traffic, but could still maneuver when given the opportunity.
I hesitated in considering the entry level coupe from BMW, but was pleasantly surprised to see many features handed down from the legendary big brothers.
BMW sedans have always been the benchmark for driving enthusiasts and the Germans finally nailed the media/technology interface with i-Drive - awesome.
Turns on a dime.
Power output is perfectly matched.
Retains luxury feel of BMW.
Makes any commute enjoyable.
Heated steering wheel.
Offer a diesel engine.
This car is my second favorite next to our X-5 diesel.
Keep bringing the German diesels to America and sooner or later we'll get it.
