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.

Thank you for the welcome What do BMW enthusiast think about a bmw in blue? I had a few friends busting my chops asking why I got it in blue. I think it looks awesome in montego blue because where I live they are usually black, white, or silver so blue is a nice change to see.

I personally think a dark blue BMW is great . . . shows the body lines and contours.

My 335d looks wicked awesome in Deep Sea Blue. Especially since every other dang Bimmer on the road is black, white, or silver.

Nice color! The Blue looks good with the lighter leather colors (which one do you have... hard to tell... looks like it is either Oyster or Savannah Beige)

I wanted the Coral Red interior... so my choice was between getting a White or Space Grey exterior. Eventually went with the white (though the Thai folks at home are not very happy about it, because apparently all white cars are taxis!)

Thank you Energtik! @jatbeni Sawadee krup! The interior is Taupe Leatherette. I assume you are Thai from what you said in your post hehe! I'm not Thai but I have visited Thailand and train thai boxing here in the states so I like the culture. You have a 1-series also?

@MuayThaiKid -

No I am not Thai. But my significant other is. And she gives me a hard time about my Alpine White 128i. But I solved that problem by designating our Range Rover as her primary vehicle. She hates driving my manual 128i anyway.

Your car is perfect, the Blue shows every design detail of this great car. If I would have bought mine brand new, that's what i would have gone for.
Mine is a Sedona Red 128i which is an awesome color too.

Thanks guys! Yea the blue is a nice change to see, I recently read that the 2012 1-series would be the last year that they have Montego Blue as a color. I'm glad I was able to get this color before it was discontinued.
