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.

My car showed sitting at port until it had already docked in New Jersey. YMMV, but I knew what ship my car was on simply by process of elimination... my car magically crossed the Atlantic without a boat if the online site is to be believed

My 128i cabrio waited for two weeks between the production date and the ship. This was in 2008 and it definitely has been worth the wait ever since!

Just hang in there ...

I appreciate the efforts BMW puts forth to allow us to track the production and delivery of our vehicles, but it does fail in many areas.

Reported end of production 4/7/12. No updates yet 4/25/12
