2010 BMW 1 Series Convertible 135i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I sunk 18K to get the turbos replaced, a/c leak, fuel pump, and countless other fixes. The car was great will the warranty expired at 100k miles. It was fast and a ton of fun. Had to get rid of it before I lost my shirt. Maybe a Z4 is better?

2010 BMW 1 Series Convertible 135i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

My BMW is what was promised: "The Ultimate Driving machine". It's fast, fun and flirty. However.....

This car is for the person who would be willing to support a trophy wife (or pool boy). It's gorgeous and the envy of all, but she continually wants new things and things cost!! Beware, it's going to be a bumpy ride.

Tires - runflats. Nice thought, but they ride rough. Replacement is $350 each and meant to last only 35,000 miles. They go "flat" rather easily. (Three flats in 6 months)
I had a complete blow out after hitting a pothole.

Cost vs trade-in value is not what I expected.


Best Features

Speed. Acceleration. Sound of acceleration & gear change. Front seats (both fronts adjust and heat multiple ways) - NOT the back which is a great place to put a shopping bag, child or your mother-in-law. Color. Trim. Trunk space. Ease of putting the top down. GPS link-up, although prone to blowing fuses. Envy of friends. Good mid-life car, except: tires, heating, ride, noise, cup holders, minimal bells and whistles, not-recommended by BMW navigation, minimal storage, interior quality. Fun, but frustrating.


Worst Features

Tires - ridiculous. Ride could be better. Heat - dash heat is effective at 84. If turned back to 82, the AC comes on to cool down. Any lower setting will be cool air. (Declared normal.) Foot well heat works like a champ and may result in third degree burns before entire car is warm. Cup holders - Driver's is good. Passenger's requires lifting the armrest resulting in contents sliding out of place. iPod linked well. Telephone will not link. (Common on non-iPhones) No cupholders or vents in back. Door storage is not user friendly. Interior materials (mats, leather, steering wheel) show wear after 2.5 yrs. (no kids). Traded for Toyota with better ride, less noise, more bells, $20,000 savings.

2010 BMW 1 Series Convertible 135i 2dr Convertible (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

The best car I have ever owned. Excellent fit and finish. But, it's the performance that really is the kicker. Have had three BMW's and this is the best. It is number one.


Best Features

M package, DCT, and the twin turbos


Worst Features

RFT, I don't care for the run flat tires.

Review

The 2010 convertible replaced our 2007 series 3 sedan. Feels the same as I drive it around southern Florida. With the top down I feel about twenty years younger and it is a fun drive. Tight turns, great acceleration, the joy of cruising around has reappeared. Cost was similar to my series three car. Blue tooth option is a must. Safety features abound.


Best Features

The look the styling, the comfort. It is a convertible you can be proud of. Gas mileage is fine. Reliability is a BMW trademark.


Worst Features

The back seat room is questionable. But I do not plan to sit back there. My young grandchildren will have enough room.
