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.

2013 Last Year for 6 cylinders in a 1 Series?

I plan to order a 128 next July for ED but now am reconsidering. According to many reports, with the 2014 model year the 1 series will become the 2 series, with several variants of a four cylinder engine as the only powerplant available. I'm looking forward to a 6M and the I6 as a sweet combo, and do not want a four banger or turbos.

Does it make sense to order the 2013 in the last weeks of the model run next year?

Yes it does. I have a non turbo I6 '11 Z4. Pretty soon there won't be any BMWs without a turbo.

I'm also hoping to pick up a 1 on a ED trip in late June '13 - a 135 probably. As it is the end of production, I am hoping for some incentives. Does this sound like something to be hopeful about or am I deluding myself as usual?

You can hope to get the Value Package - that would be a reasonable expectation. That should give you ~1500 in savings.

The Value Package was made available when I got my 2011 - which has a build date of late July, 2010. This was before the mid cycle model refresh - which was largely cosmetic.

Similarly, you can see that the Value Package is available for the older 3 series (like the wagon), before these are replaced by the new F3x equivalent.

Still waiting for my pre-orderd 128i. It'll be a '13 model, to be built in a few months and coinciding with my Stateside return.. November can't come soon enough!

Will the 2014 model also have the stop/start feature on the 4-cylinder, just to seal the deal on me ordering a 2013? How would that work with a stick shift?

The start-stop feature can be disabled though, can't it? Every time I've been in one with the start-stop feature, first thing the driver does is disable it.

Yes. I've had a 328 loaner for a week and you can definitely disable the start/stop feature....thank God. I tried it out and turned it off after about a mile and 3 stoplights. The 4 cylinder engine in the 328 is quite impressive I must say....and I usually HATE turbo engines.

I was very impressed with the new 4-cylinder on the 328 as well, it may be my next car (once the warranty on the 135 goes out).

My custom ordered 128i goes into production next week, through MSP program... I wanted that specific model due to the inline 6, along with the closest chasis to my good 'ol E46 from back in the day. Looks like I picked the last year for the engine I wanted on this model.

Do you mean all turbos, cause the 2 series will have a turbo inline six option.

It's one reason I'm keeping my 2004 330i, I'd rather have a high revving normally aspirated six than a turbo six.

Mein Auto: Z3 3.0i Roadster, K1300S
I test drove a 2012 328i with the N20 turbo 4 yesterday while my Z3 was in for some minor service, and really liked the engine (other than the no engine oil dipstick, of course). I was hoping the 2013 1-series would come with this engine, but apparently the NA 3.0 I-6 is going to continue until the F20 gets here for 2014. I like the I-6 in my Z3, but an N20 in the 1-series would kind of make it the 2002 Turbo for the 21st Century. Too bad we'll have to wait a while longer.

With the new Mark VII GTI specs that I have seen, this may tempt me into a new car and not wait for the F20 (and worry about what it will look like in person).

I think there's a chance we'll see an 2014 MY e82 with the current set of engines. Reason? BMW almsot always gets 7 model years out of a body style and the e82 was introduced in 2008.

I think I have 2 of the best non turbo BMW's ever built. My E90 328i M sport and my 118i E87. It is hard to beat the sound of the I6 when you get on it except for with the 34-36mpg the 2lit 4 cyl 118i gets.
