What a Car!
By Richard on


2008 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


I took this car over on Swap-A-Lease with 10 months left and lots of miles. I get to drive a $45,000 car (which is way out of my league) less than $7000 with maintenance included. My biggest complaint were the front run-flats which succumbed to a double blow out on a New Jersey pothole. Replaced with Sumitomos at half the cost. Car rides smoother and handles just as well. Car is so heavily optioned I have not explored them all. There is no dip stick. When oil light comes on you press some buttons and its sensor told me it needed one quart. BMW told me to come in and they would add it gratis! Service is very addicting.

Best Features

Power; automatic top; handling, key less starting; USB Flash Drive for mp3

Worst Features

Ditch the Bridgestone run-flats. Sport suspension rides a bit hard.
