Best Birthday Present Ever
By Jesus on


2008 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


After test driving I couldn't resist treating myself to this baby. Being on a relatively tight budget I custom ordered a pretty bare-bones model since the options add up so quickly. It was well worth the wait and the price. I've enjoyed every second in the car.

Best Features

Handle, power, looks, surprisingly roomy interior & trunk (considering the overall size), sheer quality of materials and operation. Uniqueness--haven't seen another one on the road yet, no competitor makes a similar car, and the "Year One of the 1" emblem is a cool touch.

Worst Features

All relatively minor ones: Options are too expensive. Seat height adjustment is awkward (you have to lift yourself up awkwardly to raise it). Radio controls could be more intuitive. I expected better gas mileage out of the 128i.
