E82 / E87 / 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 a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135.

Where's the Storage?

Six months into owning my 128i convertible and I absolutely love driving this thing. A beautifully handling machine with just the right amount of power for my driving style. Since it's just the wife and myself riding around in it, we find it roomy and comfortable. But who the hell designed the glovebox and storage in this car? I have a bigger storage capacity in my MINI. With the owner's manual in the glovebox I can barely fit anything else inside. Please tell me that like the MINI there's a secret compartment? There's nowhere to hide my GPS, cellphone and/or wallet. After watching videos depicting BMW's constant attention to detail, I would've thought they'd come up with something a little more clever for storing drivers' essentials.
Home in the Poconos, heart in the Alps. Money in Washington.
