HPFP is a 135 only issue - that does not mean that the entire 1 series is unreliable.

This was my reason for choosing the 128i... the NA inline 6 is a proven product, honed over many years, if not decades.

I am sure BMW will eventually get a handle on the HPFP problems... so I will look into getting a Turbo down the road.

This is one instance where you can curse the farm lobby and their push for higher ethanol in gas... the one singular factor behind the higher HPFP failure rate.
