For me, the big question is: do you want lumbar or not?

I got my 135i without the Premium Package....and now use a freaking cushion on long trips. I don't think I'll buy another BMW without it.

Either car is a bad choice for a teenager.

If you must have a new BMW, start with a stripped down 128i. Even that's probably too much.

Truecar.com is also helpful - it shows not just the dealer price but also gives you an idea of the true cost to the dealer (which is, of course, lower than invoice.)

I had heard about that, but hadn't heard about what vehicle would receive it, or if it's US-bound, though.
