Short Review — Small and very luxurious! This car is amazing. Good things come in small packages since it is a 5 series inside even though it small on the outside. Good things do come in small packages. The ultimate driving machine. Really! :-)

Pros: BMW

Cons: Gas Mileage

Best Car In It's Class. — BMW's 135i is nothing short of amazing. The build quality is stellar and that coupled with standard BMW power and handling make for an amazing machine. BMW's warranty and free service are great programs that add confidence to ownership. The 135i's twin turbo engine is incredible...more than enough power is always on tap. I would definitely recommend the 135i to anyone who loves to REALLY drive. The enthusiast who takes the long way home from work on a sunny Friday afternoon just to enjoy the open road.

Pros: Power, Handling, Quild Quality, Service, FUN FUN FUN!!!

Cons: Cost for it's size

I Love My 135i M Sport — This car is a rocket! It feels solid as a rock. Goes 0-60 in 5.1 seconds, so great to merge into L.A. traffic! The ride is quiet, even with the audio system off. I love the way it looks. This is a great introduction car to the BMW line. Fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun, fun!

Pros: A rocket

Cons: I wish it would get better gas mileage

Bmw 135 — A light, tight BMW that does 0-60 in 4.7 sec need I say more? It's not an M car but it can be if you want it to. Just get a performance exhaust, stiffer springs, sway bars, and a DINAN stage 2 and you've got yourself a 400hp M killer. As it is it's an incredibly capable sports coupe but also a GT when you want it to be. Best bargain in the market.

Pros: phenomenal performance, great handling, light weight, and all the luxury you'd want in a sports coupe

Cons: none

I Am A Fan Of Bmw! — It's mt new car so it's the best haha Performance - It handles like it's on rails, accelerates like a BMW should and the breaking in unbelievable Build Quality - I've only had it for a few months but no issues yet. Appearance - It has that aggressive look to it. Cost of ownership - mileage is around 25 MPG average. it gets up to 40+ MPG on the highway if youcan keep it around the speed limit. Fun Factor - It's my fisrt BMW but it's the most fun I've had driving.

Pros: It's fun, quick and handles great... what else is there?

Cons: None yet. It even has room in the trunk/boot for my golf clubs.

Best Bmw On The Line-up — I drove this car at the BMW performance school and I have to say it was my favorite car there. Has the same motor as the 335i but drives totally different. It is a lot quicker and more agile. That 300lb/ft of torque really shows with the size of this car! When I was driving it i downshifted to second gear and it hauled ass all the way through! According to one of the instructors when drag raced against the M5 and M6 the 135i can hold its own all the way up to about 85 to 90 mph keeping right next to the M5's and 6's. Really I may be sounding very bias but I loved driving the car and since I drove it i miss it, i want to drive it again very soon. Overall great car, classic BMW: as balanced as can be. Period.

Pros: EVERYTHING !!!    

but....

Cons: -Cost even though advertised to be cheap, loaded is about $42,000.
-Almost everything on it is optional even more so with the 128i.
-Small back seat, but stand-able.
-Not bad but not good gas milage about 23 miles per gallon average.

Looks Good But Ride Isn't As Good As It Could Be. — Unfortunately for this car, I had just traded it in from a Ford Focus ST so when I put my foot down in this I was underwelmed. Still, it is a BMW so it isn't too shabby!

Pros: Looks pretty good from most angles, fuel economy, image, stop-start function, cabin well insulated from outside noise

Cons: Chassis and ride. Engine is good but maybe needs abit more "poke". Deisel engine rattle; like driving a cab

Coolest Compact Car —

Coolest compact car Great (basically carefree) engine and 6 speed gearbox. Impressive that the 2 litre engine is enviromentaly friendly (119gc02/km) and still puts out 143hp and alot of torque. Mind you that 143hp isn't that much of a wowfactor BUT it's a small 3door compact car with the same hp as most normal midsized cars so 0-100kph in 8.9s isn't that bad. And you get free parking! It certainly is the best performing car of all envirementally friendly dieselcars today. However 0-100kph in 8.9 seconds isn't enough to give it a full score on performance. Breaking is excellent and handling with the stiffened suspension that the M-sport package gives me is superb even with 5 people in the car. Can't really complain much about the buildquality. Neat and tidy, very... "german". My only complain is a small panel hosting the buttons for the electric windows. It looks like it comes right out of a Daewoo or other cheap car. I'm normally not really fond of the compact car look but BMW managed to make me buy theirs partly because of the looks. Looks great and stylish although I have my reservation about the backpart. The back looks good - for a compact car - however this cars beauty truly takes form when it's seen in the coupé version. Hence 4/5 on appearance.

Pros: Looks, driving experience, fuel economy and "the feeling".

Cons: Electric window buttonpanel looks really cheap

Overall:

Like A Rabid Bulldog Chasing A Mailman — Test drove both the 128i and the 135i. The 128 is a pleasant little semi-sports car. That's about the best I can say for it. The 135i, however is the main show. Just hit the accelerator and you hear this very satisfying growl just as you're shoved back in the seat by the resident 300 hp monster. This is a very fun toy to drive around, in fact, I was basically chortling the whole time I was driving it. It's a funny blend of serious performance, luxury and practicality. If this unique (odd?) mix of size, comfort, performance and price is in line with what you want, well there probably aren't too many other options, but who cares because you probably won't stop smiling after you drive one.

Pros: Probably the most fun you can get from a new BMW for less than $50k

Cons: It's a weird cross between a true sports car and a luxury 4-seat coupe. It's redemption is the amazing engine. It's bane is the not so modest price.
