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


Great enthusiast's car. Does all the things that count very very well. Excellent communication with the driver. Practical and affordable enough (at least for the 128) for the DD. Price is reasonable if you don't need all the extras, and you really don't. 135 is a thrill ride but was overkill and all too hazardous to the health of my license. 128 is plenty powerful, brakes are too, also lighter and better weight dist.

Best Features

Engine, handling, compact yet trunk room for 3 golf bags and usable rear seats if your not a 6+ footer. ipod usb adapter, heated seats work very well. Stock stereo much better than most- 10 speakers w/2 subs.

Worst Features

Wheel cuts off top of gauges. Shift throws long and have inorganic feeling. Highway ride busy with Pzero run flats of ZSP. A couple extra gallons of gas stowage and a couple hundred pounds off the curb would make it sublime.
