Fun Topless Car! — Have had it for only 3 months. Very quick car. Great sound with the top down. Very refined exotic exhaust not and engine sound. Takes a pounding from roads here in New England. Some bumps cause crashing of suspension...ouch. On smooth rounds handles and rides very nice. Had a 328 Convertible before this but not enough power and soft handling. Also, even though this car is smaller it has far more useable trunk space than the 328 hard top.

Sleeper — This car is nothing but fun to drive. My guess is that most people see the 1-series as the entry level little brother to the 3-series. While that may be true, I think people underestimate how powerful and agile the 135i really is. With 5s 0-60 and back to zero in 105ft, and 0.98 lateral Gs, this is 90% of an M3 for 60% of the cost.

Gas is expensive and you will be using a lot of it.

The Perfect Combination Of Speed, Driving Pleasure, And The Bmw Build Quality. The Baby Bm. — A blast to drive-- Nimble and sure-footed; never lacking power from the twin-turbo 3-liter engine. A pleasure to drive quickly both on highway and in the tighter sections of a country back road. +German engineering and build quality. Will run 0-60 times of 4/7 with roll out.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
