Can an occasional human fit in the backseat of a 128 and - oh yeah - how about golf clubs in the trunk?
Glad I got the email on this thread because I just bought a 128i. Funny that earlier I was asking about the 135, concerned about the turbo, etc, and then a couple weeks later I found the 128 that I preferred. (And yes, IMO it is plenty fast in its own right. Coming from my old 328, I find the 37 added horses more than enough to get in trouble.)

The back seat is pretty small -- it seems smaller than that in the e46. I used to carry at least one person back there with little problem in my 328, but I doubt they'd want to ride in the back seat of this one for very long.

But most importantly, I'm a golf nut myself and yes, my large, almost staff-sized carry bag fits great in the trunk of the 1 series. I actually considered a couple of small, non-BMW cars this time and I was surprised that some of these little hatchbacks aren't even wide enough to hold a golf bag!
