    I'm In Love With No Regrets — I bought my 135i after extensive research, I wanted fast, rear wheel drive, room for luggage, passable gas mileage, good looking, some pedigree. I got all of that without question, typical bmw maintenance blues, although rare, when it happens, it costs a lot to repair compared to a corolla. this is my daily driver and I couldn't be happier.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: practical, easily upgraded. very fast. good looking. quiet on the interstate, handles perfectly, reliable.

    Cons: expensive to maintain.

    Best Bmw Bang For The Buck — Well built, no mechanical issues, 20,000 trouble free miles. The car handles brilliantly. Terrific brakes. Nav is easy to use. Interior has a great fit and finish except for the squeaky center arm rest. Average 26 mpg on 89 octane.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Best handling car I have ever owned.

    Cons: Firm ride with the run flat tires.

    Sporty Coupe That Is Very Fun To Drive!! — This car is a very fun car to drive. It is heavy, smooth and has great acceleration. It has 4 brand new run-flat tires, good for all weather. The ride is comfortable and enjoyable with an immaculate interior. I always felt safe driving this car!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The car drives so smoothly.  It is a heavy, powerful car with great acceleration.  The seats are very comfortable.  The car is a great looking sport coupe. I never had any issues with blind spots. I felt very safe in this car and very in control.  It is a blast to drive this car!!

    Cons: The back seat is a bit small as this car is a 2 door.  There is not much cargo storage, or storage for a spare tire.  This caused me to buy run-flat tires.

    Sporty, Fun To Drive, Good Fuel Economy, Bmw Build Quality. — Overall there is not much I dislike about the car. I wish it came with the rear differential from the M3 or 1M, but I can understand with they didn't. It handles great with precise steering feel. The 6 speed automatic is a great transmission. In normal mode it shifts nice and smooth, but slide it over into Sport mode and it shifts firm and fast. It also has paddle shifters to operate it manual if you prefer and those shifts are extremely fast and crisp. Ride quality is sporty which is to be expected. The brakes feel solid and firm. Lastly, the audio system is top notch for its category.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great styling, tons of power from the twin turbo engine, 6 speed auto shifts quick and smooth, handles great, decent cargo room for size of car, and decent fuel mileage.

    Cons: Lack of limited slip differential.  No other complaints.

    My Bmw Review — love this car. The model I have has all extras, love the way there is no key and a button to start it, never had any problems with it at all. The car is really fun to drive and pretty fast, bit heavy on the fuel (mine is a petrol model) but I think this is just down to the fuel costs at the minute.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: everything, espcially the gadgets

    Cons: maybe just the leg room in the back, but its not really that bad, its just I have come down from a 4x4

    A Great Drivers Car — This little car is a blast to drive. The car has had an issue with the high pressure fuel pump which has been replaced twice. We have just received a recall notice from BMW to have the pump replaced with a redesigned model, from reading online this should fix the issue. one the last note; the body lines are a little "pudgy" but with only those two Items I cannot complain.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Fun, Fun, Fun,

    Cons: This car should have been made as a 2 seater, zero leg room for the back seat

    Really, Really Fun To Drive (and Tan At The Same Time) — This "Baby Bimmer" which we call "The Go-Cart", is an absolute blast to drive! We chose the 128i instead of the 135i because it has quite enough spunk all on its own. In fact, my wife thought I'd be too dangerous driving the 135i! We love our rides to our NJ Shore house and our yacht in our Go-Cart!

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

    Pros: Fun and Sun

    Cons: None
