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.

If it is an IS, make sure it isn't a manual transmission car: http://my.is/forums/f127/manual-tran...oblems-414062/

Yeah I will move to Lexus too....


If anyone intrested these were the cost I was looking at

Oil Leaks...already spend $1400...and still was leaking........
Auto trans $7000
Vanos $2000

Very expensive repairs.........118i no good ....was targeted at younger generations at a much affordable price.....the car is full of flaws which cost a fortune to repair.....

and by the way in think as mentioned in some forum it has the same transmission as HYUNDAI Genisis. ....... so why do they charge BMW price.....hey any one in Germany listning.......

Glad its sold.
