The 2008 most definitely has ABS and DSC. Mine has the 6MT, so no AT sport mode. The only thing I miss on mine that the newer (2010+?) models have standard is A2DP support.

Great find!

Assuming it hasn't been in a major accident or submerged in Lake Michigan... that is a serious no brainer.

I'd list it and if you can sell it for more than the trade-in allowance then great (I'd think that 26k for a vert would be a no-brainer). Personally I'm in the market for another BMW, Ideally a CPO...

I didn't see $5k worth of entry-level car "stigma" in the 135. Granted the exterior styling might be a bit polarizing for some folks, but there is nothing about the 135 that insinuates "entry-level"...

Based on that rationale you should be buying a tuned EVO or STI instead of the GTR... comparable performance and <= money.

Just make sure the car doesn't have any major problems.

You don't want to spend a bunch of money fixing problems when it would be less costly to find a 3 in better condition from the start.

Fifth Gear on Joost has a comparison between a 130i M-sport 5-door and a VW R32 5-door.

They absolutely loved the R32.

It's $900, which I'm having a hard time figuring out why it is worth $400 more than the System U.

Did you add coolant to the reservoir...
