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.

Love my new 2009 135i convertible

Enjoying my new 135. It has sports package and paddle shifters. I used to be a manual kind if guy, but love this transmission. Drove it on "the Dragon" (google it if you don't know this road) and its by far the best road car I've driven. Other cars may be faster on the track, or have better stats, but this thing is fantastic on a twisty mountain toad. Looking forward to years of fun with my new Bimmer!

Congratulations! My son and I took my 128i vert on the dragon in 2009 shortly after I got it. It was fun, when I wasn't forced to go REAL slow by Harleys. There are lots of fun roads in that area.
