From a MINI to a BMW
By LG on


2009 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I have driven BMWs before and it seems all the interiors all pretty much the same. I would like to have nicer buttons for the radio. Also, I am very disappointed that the mirror on the sun visors do not have lights. What a bummer for such car! Response is awesome compared to the MINI but the mileage per gallon consumption went down 25%. The handling of the car does not compare with the so much fun go- kart driving of the MINI. I guess I compromised on that. Overall I am happy with it.

Best Features

Favorite Feature: the sound of the car when is starting up! It's just amazing!!! Ohh, and the super, extra comfy sport seats, they are so amazing!!!

Worst Features

Light on the mirrors, improved interiors, shorter doors or relocation of handles. It's kind of difficult to create the momentum necessary to close the door, I have to grab the lower compartment on the door to close it.
