2009 BMW 1 Series 135i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


I had my eye on a 135 ever since the first time I heard they were cramming a 300HP I6 into a car that weighs as much as a Dodge Neon. Add BMW's legendary handling, massive brakes and you might just have the perfect small sports coupe. The real added bonus for me was that I get 25 MPG combined hwy/city, the interior is attractive yet functional, and the all season tires I needed for northeast weather don't detract from the appearance. If you want to take it easy and enjoy a comfortable ride, the 135 won't disappoint. But if flat out exhilarating performance is what you seek, I'd strongly recommend you purchase a 135. Oh, and befriend a state trooper unless you actually like going to court.

Best Features

Awesome power, comfortable ride, functional interior, unique styling. 300 lb/ft of torque at 1700rpm is something you experience, not explain.

Worst Features

Not too keen on run flats but so far so good.
