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.

As close as you'll get right now to driving a 135i

Video of the Autospies boys testing the 135i in Sweden.

It sure does sound awesome!

I've logged quite a few miles in a 128 and it sucked! Of course it was 30+ years ago in a FIAT 128.

That guy missed the apex's everywhere (too wide).

Interesting too how Sweden has a pile of windmills generating free power ... we could learn a lesson there.

Never ... good to know we're slowly moving off oil dependence.

Those have been there for quite a while now, not sure how many years, but it would take thousands of those large fields of fans to reduce our dependence on oil and nuclear energy.
