2011 135i - Picked her up last week

I finally took delivery of my 135i last Friday in Wurtzburg, Germany at the Military/Dip sales car pick-up point. I could not do the official ED program, so we swung by the BMW welt and I just pretended my car was waiting for me there.

I can't wait until my break-in period is done so I can really have some fun!

The E90 sedan is the last in the line of great 4 door 3 Series BMW's. Too bad.

DCT and the autobahn

The 7 speed is the double clutch transmission. I hear there is a slight hesitation from a stand still, but I have not noticed it. Perhaps because I am not stepping on the gas from a stand still.

And I am fortunate to drive on the autobahn (highway) every day if I chose. I waited until I had over 140 miles on the car before I went above 100. Actually, at 4250 rpm the speedo read 120. I didn't stay there long, just had to see how easy it was, and it was very easy to get there.

I will post a video after proper break in.

Sounds really good. I have to try a DCT 135i coupe for myself.

beautiful car! Let us know...after the few months you've owned it...

What do you like about it...and what would you change..?

Really interested in hearing about that DCT transmission.

How do you like it?

TIA
