2008 BMW 135i: Hiccup Free

July 27, 2009

I was handed the key to our 135i with a cautionary note:

"We had the code cleared," Mike Schmidt, our resident long term guru told me in a hushed tone. "Let me know if it has any problems at start up."


Seeing a slightly worried look on face my face while I contemplated a car that won't start 45 miles away from home, Mike added, "Don't worry, the car has BMW Roadside Assistance."

I have to admit, I got a bout of nervous tummy every time I was just about to start the engine. Thankfully the long crank start was a non-issue the entire weekend. Maybe the code was the cure? We'll keep you in the loop.
