I love my manual in my 2011 135i. I'll never have anything else. Well, not unless all the manufacturers do away with manuals altogether. I HOPE NOT.

Tire Tracking

2011 White 135i MT, Awesome

I love my 6MT way better than my Infiniti G37 coupe auto... I was always driving in sport mode and never had the right rpm's. I'll never own an auto again.

Red vs. coral red boston leather

That red sure does look more "red" than the coral red I wanted for my white 135i coupe. There was only black, taupe, and grey when I ordered my 135i coupe. Very bright!

I never even considered the 128 because I had a G37 coupe before and wanted something faster and lighter. I hear the 128 is every bit as fast as you want to go. But like the above prior post says: ...
