Rocket Car — this car as an amazing handling, one of the most powerful engine! Really dependable car, no problem, sporty driving, as a good overall assembly, prefect balance between sporty looks and the classical lines of BMW. I recommend this car to every REAL driver

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

Pros: summer driving! Go-kart handling!

Cons: Winter driving in snow

Bmw 1 Cabrio — I was very lucky to drive this car. I preferred this one over the Mini, but I guess I ran out of budget. Good acceleration, clean handling and it's a convertible, what more could I say? Too bad they haven't made an M1 yet...

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

Pros: Handling, acceleration

Cons: Haven't found out anything negative

Great Car — Its a 125i m sport convertible in black with red leather with the 3.0 engine fitted as standard.plenty power,it goes sideways and i just love it. if i take my time i can still get over 40mpg,not bad for a 3.0! but plant the throttle and it can go down as far as 7mpg lol,i don't care about fuel consumption i just love the noise of that straight six.

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

Pros: Looks very good

Great Daily Driver For Those Who Need Some Sportiness Without Sacrificing Reliability And Style. — Great daily with balanced handling and reasonable comfort. Pricey, but worth it. Wish it had the full leather and sport package. Overall a great sporty car. Fun to drive, reliable, useful for everyday errands and shopping, yet still quick enough to keep me interested.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Agility, balance and reliability. Oh, and it is a BMW.

Cons: Smallish back seat if tall front seat occupant (but we already knew that).

Glad I Bought It — This car is awesome!! High performance and luxury. Can't beat that!! Very quick, fast, and agile yet it has very good everyday driving manners. The car is loaded stock, but of course, I had to add a few options. This car is so fun to drive I will probably never get rid of it.

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

Pros: FUN!

Cons: Nothing sucks about my car!

Near Perfect -- Truly An Ultimate Driving Machine — My only two complaints are the electronic speed control (155 mph with the performance package; could easily do 175 without the governor) and the wind noise around the windows that resulted in driving over 120 mph (something about the extra pressure messing up the seal). This is the most amazing drive I've ever had. I fall in love with it all over again every day I drive it. Sadly, my wife talked me into trading it in on a 3-series that the whole family can enjoy more. Bittersweet.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, handling, exhaust note

Cons: You might not have the personality for it.  It demands to be driven like you stole it.

Buy One! — It's just awsome! (when I get to drive it!). Good fuel consumption, responsive engine, comfortable, hi tech and great styling - what a combination! Exceeds all my expectations of a smaller car - by a long way. Sets the standards for other manufacturers

Pros: Stylish, pokey, fun

Cons: On no account avoid this car

Great Car — Amazing acceleration, great handling, good manual shifter, much better looking than in pictures. Fun to drive, excellent interior and options. The brakes are fantastic, and the car is extremely responsive, even with all the nannies off it is remarkably composed. It is easy to drive in commuter traffic as well. Trunk space is good. A great, classy wolf in sheep clothing. Definitely more fun than my 2002 300xi. Buy it and you won't regret it.

Pros: Engine, handling, options

Cons: none so far

Perfect So-cal Car — After years of driving roadster, I've decided to get something a bit larger (so I can take friends with me. Small car, monster engine, sexy body.. what more can you ask for.. Can't wait to take the car to the BMW AUTOCROSS.

Pros: engine, fit  finish, interior built, handling, transmission (6 speeds)

Cons: smallish back seat, price tag

128i Is More Than Just A Daily Driver — Performence - Great acceleration speeds very settle until you reach 3000 RPM, it start to scream, gives you torques and power, great transitions. ABS works wonders, and handles great..other than the fact it understeered when i was driving 95 on the high way last week, front tire was about to slip and nanny kicked in create some what of a understeer. Build Quality - for premium package, you get boston leather and wood trims..seriously what else can you ask for. Appearance - for sure it's head turner, chick sucker. it'll get everyone looking at your car. Cost- 42k around would give you the same package that I have Sports Package Premium package Xenon lights Active steering Heated seats Ipod intergration Comfort access and bluetooth intergration. Fun Factor - it's really fun if you have long trip and you have a friend with a higher tier car you can chase around. i drove my baby chasing my friends M3, going almost 100 at times never reach over 3000 RPM. seriously it's a fun car. oh and it's a Rear wheel drive, some see it's fun thing some doesn't feel that way.

Pros: Fast, reliable, sporty, looks great, all in one little package

Cons: gas mile, nanny system (traction controls) are scary at times.
