    dude - it's an abomination!

    it's also very very heavy for such a small car!

    but i suppose an upgrade over a focus.

    I'm also seriously considering a 135i once school is done. I think the 1 series' are nice.

    Default 1 series...

    So I'm a signature away from ordering a 1 series for my wife's birthday... dump the Focus

    128i Coupe, 6spd (yay!)
    Alpine White
    Black leatherette
    Gloss black trim (or Poplar Grey Wood)
    Premium pack
    - sunroof
    - xenon
    - lights pack (?)
    - BMW assist with btooth
    USB/iPod integration

    MAYBE: Comfort pack
    - keyless access (touch the door/proximity or something)
    - Dimming int/ext mirror



    3 series is definitely not in mind. The other option is an A3 (ugh) or B Class (gah!). A quick test drive of both dissuaded that notion. I'm excited that there is a 6spd in the family... though not mine :| thoughts?

    You know, I thought that too, till I saw a white one in person. It's so damn cute. Test drove the 135 and it's peppy. Nice note. Granted the actual product is a 128 but still It's helluva upgrade on a Focus.

    135i or ban. They're growing on me, fast. I'll want one when I'm done with college, I'm sure.

    Well I think it looks tidy. Lot better than a bunch of flowers. Hope 'er indoors is suitably grateful. You might be tempted to drive if nobody is looking

    Love you choice! Two thumbs up! I, unlike most, like the way this car looks.
    Just curious, why not the 135i?

    I heard by a specialist in BMW mods that it's an excellent candidate for upgrades; not as heavy as a 3, and from what I gather not as assisted in driving than an M3 would be. 135i: dual turbo if I remember correctly from that conversation.

    Tons of fun.

    I got stuck behind a white 128i Friday. I must say it is a pretty cool looking car. I think I'll stick with my 540i6 for now though

    I test drove the 128i yesterday, I liked it! I think it had a lot of pep, the handling was great... but the price tag was steep in comparison to something like a slightly used 330ic. Regardless, you've gotta be happy with what you're driving, I like the new 1 series, but drop the price and you'll catch more life time BMW owners versus keeping the price as it is. My replacement for my e34 will definitely be the M6 or the 650ic... love that car!

    Enjoy the new car!
