E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Mein Auto: 2007 E87 120i
Arrow Finally I did it. My 120i with supercharger~

Don't ask me why I supercharged my 120 rather than directly go for a tuned 135.
Where I live in is a crowded city. Choosing a bimmer with small displacement is more ideal for me.

My stock 120i was slow to death. I'm eager to have a more powerful car all the time so that I can go to company in 10 minutes.
For me, the way from my house to company is such a long long journey, every day it just repeat getting stuck in traffic jam.

After supercharging my 120i, max output then become 220hp @6400 rpm, 31kg-m @6400rpm.

Did you import your 1er? I noticed the Washington plates and unless BMW had some sort of special deal that the rest of America was left out of, I figured it was definetly not an NA car.
