ok you 1 ers - my wife's lease is up on the 05 3 series and she's looking at a 135
I don't know anyone who owns a 1 yet so if you can give us some feedback as an owner we would appreciate that.

from what I've heard, quick fun and fast. I checked one out the Budd's BMW and it was surprisingly roomy in the back for the size of the car. The truck is not meant for camping, or several 24's for that matter. Why does you wife want a 135?? 128 should be plenty, she has no need for the added power. It's a waste of money in my opinion.

I have a 135i and i love it. the 128i is quick too but its a world of difference between the 2. I work at BMW in sales and have driven all the cars and I can honestly say that other than the "m" cars I would chose the the 135i for sure. The suspension has been tuned by the "m"division so it handles amazing and not to metion its fast as hell.

The 1 series will never catch on.. even though cheaper than the 3 series, most people will just buy the 3 series..
I dont know why BMW ever did this.... *thmbsdwn*

The 1 series is the old E30 man... small nimble light and quick! (the twin turbo i-6 is just a bonus :D)

LIGHT?! *no-no*...dont believe in what BMW tells you...small and quick maybe...definitely NOT light and NOT cheap neither

curb weight

135 - 1530 kg
128 - 1475 kg
328 coupe - 1520 kg
WRX STI - 1530 kg - and way cheaper

even an 2009 accord sedan is only 1468 kg!!!

1 series are porks :D

Fast. Fast. Fast.

Wife has the 135. I drive it a lot now, since she takes transit. I have a 128 cab in storage which is fun in the sun, but not nearly as nimble. The 540 is the daily driver, but every time I get in the 135, it's guaranteed smile on the face.

1addicts.com is where you should go for more info.

both my wife and I drove the 135i cab (she liked it!!!) - it went better than my 98M3 (da!) and got me juiced

But -they aren't cheap!! (almost $50k 2008 demo) SOOOO..........

we did a deal on a 325cab with low Ks instead of leasing a new one - you know the ecomony these days!

and that's a wrap (a cabrio for the 3rd time - am I stupid or do I just enjoy pissing money away?)

i own a 08 135i coupe and its by far the best bimmer out there for its price, and performence. why buy a 3 series if the 1 can perform better and its cheaper. But the con is the winter, the car really like to slip out from the rear even with winter tires, also its not a family car, the 4 seats really is more like a 3 seater:( other then that its the best bang for you buck man, not being said the car its a tunners dream, with just chips, intake, and exhaust, the 135can push up to 395bhp and over 400 touqe, 1/4 mile could be 11 secs, thats numbers worth 50k.

135 twin is super fast; bmw tech friend pdi'd it. But he did say this. For a few bucks more you're better off getting a 335. Getting a whole lot more car for just a bit more $$$$. it also has plastic fenders. to lighten the front end. The tech. that goes into the new bmw's is astronomical. they are practically tuned down race cars and cost a bunch less then a porsche' :-)

I hope you guys do realize that the word on the street is: 1 series are for girls and 3's are for guys! I was thinking of getting a 135 but it does look like a chicks car so now looking for a e46 M3!

i test drove one two weeks ago. Super super quick. No space at all really for cargo, people, anything. Nice interior. WAY overpriced, and imo, it still looks ugly.

I bought one and I love it, bought it used for a good deal. I don't need extra space for passengers, so paying $5K+ more for a 335i with less options and more KM's and a year less of warranty was a bad option for me. I came from 2 M Coupes and a supercharged M3 so I like the nimbleness of it. Looks wise, I am the first to admit that it is not as handsome as a 335i or M3, but it is a great combination of a drivers car, and my daily driver! :)

White 135i cab FTW! Guys that think cars are chick cars just because their smaller are losers...

The 135 is pretty wicked!!! Even the 128 (unless you are taking it to the track) When you never see them in the shop ever for warranty work, thats usually a good sign!!!

And I don't know why you sold an e30 m3 for a crx and civic.

Don't you have another forum to post crx pics on?

Tested the 135i today - wow.

I'm looking into this car, but i'd like some feedback. does anyone who owns one know of issues pertaining to the 135? engine, trim, suspension problems?

is it reliable?

is it a keeper car? or a fun 4-yr lease and get rid of it, kinda car?

i have 2011 135I with the M package.
I love it
The power is great, the double clutch with the sport mode is nuts.
After 2 months of driving I still have that stupid smille on my face.

I'm actually thinkind to sell the Ducati and just drive the car this summer.
I'm not a expert with the BMW products, However that car is just too much fun.
I dont know about long trip, but i will assume that the confort level should be semilar to my previous 2009 328IS.

Good luck.

I got 3 BMWs as of now. 2011 135i, 2010 128i and 2011 335i.
To make it simple I can tell you that all of these are super fast. To choose between 3 and 1 series you have to decide what you really want. 135 gives you more of a sports/race type car feeling , 335 gives you a fast car feeling, not as ballsy as a 1er, just by feeling of it. But both are worth it....
