The 1 is number one. by Happy in the North on 06/25/2008. Trim: 2008 BMW 135i Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
1
Pros: Enormous power and low end grunt from the 300 lb/ft of torque. Handles like its on rails. Smaller and lighter than the 3 series so it doesn't feel as porky. Convertible is easy to lower and raise. Wind noise is minimal and non-existent with the wind deflector.
Cons: Lack of a spare tire. Other than that, nothing.
Overall review: An excellent driving machine that has enormous power and tight handling. Reverses the trend of models getting bigger and bigger.

Sensibly fun by ezshift5 on 02/18/2014. Trim: 2008 BMW 128i Coupe, Owned 1 year.
Useful?
Pros: Small but bigger than the Mini, Civics, Scions, and Fiat's. Good gas milage, even after 53k my engine is still tight
Cons: I hate run flat tires they are expensive and take away from ride quality. Also I wish the stereo was better
Overall review: This is one cool car I bought it as a daily commuter but I find myself driving it more as primary transportation.

Numero Uno - with Caveat! by Robski on 02/24/2013. Trim: 2008 BMW 135i Coupe, Owned 3 years.
Useful?
Pros: Stupid-fast with hi horsepower to weight ratio! Awesomely nimble with the motorsport package. The seats take you in and love on you - seat heater is lava hot. Heater kicks in fast too.
Cons: Still looking for the back end of the car. Some lag in the turbo. Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) is very querky. Steering wheel peeled - replaced under warranty. The anti-skid mechanism failed right after warranty expired - switch replaced - $700 - YGBSM!
Overall review: Mine is the Motorsport version. It's the funnest car I have ever driven - highway or street! 53K miles - still holding up well, with exception of anti-skid switch. Worried about long term reliability and cost of maintenance.
