Great drive, good looks, high maintenance
When it was time to sell my beloved '98 M3 convertible I looked at the 2012 3s. Too big and bloated and cluttered with expensive, distracting technology. The 1 series is the spiritual successor to the older 3. Slightly smaller back seat and trunk, but closer in size and with a clean, driving-focused dashboard. We picked one up used with low miles and original warranty still remaining-- a good thing because we have had to use it a lot! We test drove a 128 but felt it was underpowered. The 135 was obviously more expensive but we fell in love the first time we pressed the pedal to the carpet. This car is stupid fast. In a dark color and especially with the top down it looks great.
135i is Fun to Driive but needs rear tires annually
This car is a true joy to drive but, the need for Z rated tires and the cost makes this car impractical to be your only vehicle. This vehicle has needed new front tires every two years (25000 miles) and needed rear tires about every year (12000 miles). I finally had enough of the tires wearing out and I choose another vehicle. If you want a fun car, this is it, but beware you will be spending between $375 for Hankooks or $1000 for Run Flats every year. Then do not forget about the Premium Unleaded fuel requirement.
LOVE my 135I...but
I've had my 135I convertible since 6/2008. It drives great and I love the car but I've had to take it back to the dealership SIX times because the convertible top continues to leak. Today makes the second time I've filed the Lemon Law on the car. And, to make matters worse, the dealership has a totally rude attitude about trying to fix the car.
More About This Model

Some of us on staff remember the time when BMWs were austere in design and driven by real enthusiasts who appreciated a sprightly, agile and communicative car. Guys and gals who'd have the steering wheel in one hand while working the four-speed manual with the other. Today's Bimmers are still great cars, but some feel that the quintessential sport compact, the 3 Series, has gotten too big, too loaded up with gizmos and too likely to be driven by those who care more about the badge on the hood than the car's sporting capabilities. You know who we're talking about — Ultimate Driving Machine "drivers" who've got a Starbucks in one hand while working a Blackberry with the other.

That's why we can't help but feel a connection with the BMW 1 Series, including our test car, the top-of-the-line 2008 BMW 135i convertible. The "1" is a reincarnation of sorts, a compact, basic "three-box" design that harkens back to the original sport sedan, BMW's 2002, which was produced from the late 1960s to the mid-'70s. Of course, the new 1 Series and its twin-turbocharged 135i are light-years ahead of the old 2002 in terms of luxury features and acceleration, but the spirit of a relatively small, nimble and highly communicative road car remains.

Unfortunately, most will likely agree that the 1 Series just isn't pretty. The styling is downright strange — witness the "someone-just-poked-me-with-a-sharp-stick" face, the sagging, pregnant-cat-like lower character line and the mid-'90s Hyundai Elantra taillights. Every time we think we've fallen in love with the 1, these mirror-shattering styling cues snap us out of our reverie.

But a spirited blast along a mountain road is usually enough to make us forget about the 1's aesthetic issues. Like an old 2002tii, this Bimmer's beauty comes into sharp focus when you're behind the wheel.
