There's tons of space in the front seats of the 1 series. I'm 6'-4" and I have more room than I had in my 318i. With the rear seats folded down you can get an impressive amount of stuff in the back...

If you haven't test driven one, beware - once you do you're hooked. You'll notice a world of difference. My dealer always seems to give me a 328i as a loaner and it's almost painfully less fun. I...

As much as we've been hearing about and waiting for the N54 performance upgtade, it still hasn't reached the US and I'm beginning to doubt BMW will go further with it because of the HPFP issues. The...

I did the ED and saved a fair amount, BUT there are 2 things to remember:
1) You have to start paying for the car before you'll have back in the US.
2) You'll need another car between the ED and...

It would have been nice if the 1 and 3 series had the same wheels, but noooo, the 1 series have much higher offsets so those wheels won't work at all.

I doubt BMW would ever share sales figures by gender, but it's probably a good bet to say that far fewer women are willing to pay the extra money for a 135i over a 128i. Some may say that indicates...

M-sport is a must.
Premium hi-fi w/ipod adapter and USB

That's about it. Since you live in PR I doubt you need heated seats and maybe not the i-drive if you're pretty familiar with your roads. In...

Have you test driven the car with the sport package? If you don't appreciate the steering wheel and seats you might as well pass, but then you might also want to consider a 128i and save even more.

The coupes are newer models than the hatches so they are on different timelines. The redesigned hatches have already started to have been seen as camouflaged mules.

I've been plateless in NJ for 8 months - no problems yet, but I keep the plate in the truck just in case. If you don't want to risk it, get one of the tow-hook mounting kits. They're the simplest way...

Now that you're infected it's only a matter of time before you find another reason to go back to the dealer. Maybe you'll just see if you can take a test drive. Just a quick spin, it was...

I spent 10 years in a 4 cylinder 318i which did zero to sixty in about a minute. The 135i makes me cackle out loud. Whether it's at a light, passing someone on a 2-lane road, or getting onto the...
