Well.. maybe I think same way of those N-series engines. My E87 is 118d, M47, most reliable engine in 1-series, makes it quite tractor, diesel torque is easy to drive and good for her, and that 6-speed transmission is really good, but I'm still happy with mine.

After some consideration and review, a 135i is kind of cool. Not many for sale but one popped up. 2008 135i with the N54. Both turbos replaced, as well as HPFP, as well as a few key gaskets. 400hp 400tq upgrades. 13200. I really like the white color on it and it has an M package. Might post something on the 1 series forum about it.
