2011 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Had the car for about year now, no regrets. As a diehard BMW fan I was afraid BMW was shifting towards too much technology and not enough fun driving. I was wrong, the 135i is just about perfect, and it relives my days of the E46 330 but better. It has the right combination of sport/comfort for everyday use, it's NOT a track car. Get the 1M if you track your car. The 135i is a great daily driver with gobs of power and handling to exceed anyone who drives on the street. The seats are comfy and the interior is typical BMW fare with driver orientated controls. Handling is great with the exception of some understeer. The brakes are superb with great stopping power and awesome brake feel.
The 300hp engine and the exhaust sounds. The engine is a masterpiece with ZERO turbo lag.
Steering and braking feel a good in typical BMW fashion.
Oh yeah did the mention the engine??
