I love this car so much I wish that I could buy one! The comfort and the design of the car makes it one of the best ones around!

Trim: 135I M-Sport

My little Rocket !!
I think BMW hit it out of the park with this car! It is a Very comfortable car and a pleasure to drive, The stereo system is absolutely incredable, the seating position is spot on and the controls are all within reach. The comfort acess means the key stays in my pocket weather I need to unlock, enter start/stop or even lock the car, how cool is that. But nothing can put a smile on your face as quick as stepping on the accelerator!!! The 3.0L twin turbo motor is un-believeable, I may never be late again....lol And with the M-sport package you also get the "big brake package" to slow you down in a hurry, just incase you do get a little carried away, wink wink.
With the sport suspension, sport seats, traction control, and stability control, you really feel at one with the road, and always in control. MY only gripe is with the runflat tires. The work well in every situation except spirited driving.....Hitting some open-road twisties up north would be much more rewarding on even a medium priced hoigh-performance tire...But other than that this just might be "The Ultimate Driving Machine"

2008 BMW 1 Series

Trim: 128I

Small & powerful but ultimately impractical
To be honest the only negative I have to say about this car is it is too small to be practical. When I knock down the 128i on the exterior styling, it's less so about the design features then it is about the actual size of the car. Not everyone loves the spartan interiors but to me the good folks at BMW spend time on what's important and that's what's under the hood. This car can move! It is a car that begs to be taken on a stretch of road like the Sea to Sky highway on a quiet morning. It is a bit wasted sitting in traffic in the daily commute. And that's where it falls down in my opinion.I'm also used to having a fair amount of space in my cars to carry sports gear and a few extra people in the back & there just isn't enough room in the teeny 128i. The other negative is the price. I love this pocket rocket but I'd suggest spending the extra $$ to move up to the 3 series which is (in my mind) the more practical car for daily use.
