Best 6-speed Coupe Of Its Class! — The twin turbos on this car is a dream, the power is always there. Quick trips AND highway driving are both fun. Seating is spacious enough for a coupe and rear seats will actually work well in a pinch. Handling as you would expect is superb. Build Quality is great, dash and gadgets and gizmos all hold up and can handled being used. There is nothing "bad" about this car. MPG goes down as expected when you get on the turbos. No bugs or quirks to be really cautious for. All and all, no real cons for this vehicle.

Pros: The twin turbos on this car is a dream, the power is always there. Quick trips AND highway driving are both fun. Seating is spacious enough for a coupe and rear seats will actually work well in a pinch. Handling as you would expect is superb. Build Quality is great, dash and gadgets and gizmos all hold up and can handled being used.

Cons: There is nothing "bad" about this car.  MPG goes down as expected when you get on the turbos. No bugs or quirks to be really cautious for. All and all, no real cons for this vehicle.

Best Sports Coupe In Its Class. — Completely lives up to BMW's reputation. Would buy this model again. Great handling and power. Best coupe in its class! Strong acceleration and braking. My wife has always wanted this car and it met/exceeded her expectations. Next time I will consider the 135 to see what the turbo charged engine does to this model.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great acceleration from straight 6.  Excellent handling.  Most people surprised by the power and excellent handling.

Cons: Sports car and you feel most bumps on the road.

128i Convertible — BMW Quality and performance, just the right size car for 2 adults. The 128i has just the right amount of power and the transmission is superb. The top goes up and down nicely, I just wish you did not have to hold the botton down through out the process.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: It's a convertible

Cons: Small trunk can't fit golf clubs

Little Black Beast — Car is AMAZING! Performance is outstanding, and it is a BLAST to drive. Car looks menacing, down to the factory black chrome exhasust! Only drawback is once you get into the turbo's, it drinks the gas but the fun is worth it.

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

Pros: Surprising performance car

Cons: Not a thing

Bmw 1 Series M Sport Cabriolet — Quick off the lights! Scared the beejeebies out of me first time i put my foot down! Handles beautifully until it rains. Average 28 mph so a little more expensive, but so fun to drive!The M Sport is more aggressive in appearance and the saphire metalic black paintwork is a dream with the chrome touches. 19inch alloys finish the look for me. The interior is class and is so comfortable. The back seats are small but i didn't buy it to please the back seat driver!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Smooth and fast

Cons: The expense of the petrol - make petrol cheaper please

Bmw 135i Coupe, A Must Have Car! — The BMW 135i is simply an amazing car. Out of two tiny turbos and a 3.0 liter inline 6 cylinder engine it gets 300hp and 300lbft torque. It is extremely fun to drive, and will get you anywhere extremely fast. The only downside is that maintenance is expensive and cargo space is limited. However, the car is a must have, no doubt.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Extremely fast and fun car.

Cons: Cargo space sucks, and can only be used when there is no inclement weather.

Sexy And Loads Of Fun — Build Quality: Excellent. It has been two full years now, and no problems to report. Car Comparisons: Besides the 135i, I considered the Audi TT. Overall, the power/performance, styling, and quality/higher resale value won me over. Performance: There was a bit of an understeer issue in the beginning. (If you don't drive your car
