This car is FUN to drive! by An MSN Autos Consumer on 05/14/2013. Trim: 2013 BMW 128i Convertible, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I owned the 2013 128i convertible for 5 months – an absolute FUN car to drive! Handles like a go-cart. Great acceleration! You will need to purchase a radar detector because you can easily exceed the speed limit without even feeling it. The power sport seat upgrade is a must – the most comfortable/sporty seats ever!! Braking ability of this car is unbelievable. The back seat is small, but it works in a pinch (but not on a long ride unless there’re kids). Did I mention that this is a fun car to drive – REAL FUN!
Cons: BMW could have engineered the wiper switch and some of the knobs, dials, & controls to be more user-friendly and simple for the driver to use. There are only 2 cup holders both designed to fit small cups. The cup holder next to the center console is actually useless. Small trunk space, but that’s to be expected with this sports car.
Overall review: Runs, feels, rides, handles, corners, accelerates, and looks like the ultimate driving machine

Smooth Sleeper by Never Settle on 11/27/2013. Trim: 2013 BMW 128i Coupe, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: This car represents the purest form of a modern day BMW. The 128i coupe is a capable road machine in every aspect. This is the last of the straight six engines and will be a cult classic collectable. What's not to love. It commands respect.
Cons: BMW cars deserve and require pride in ownership. If respected, this car will reward it's owner with years of driving pleasure. Keep up with regular servicing and thrive.
Overall review: This is my fourth BMW. Everyone has had it's own distinct personality. They actually tell you how they want to be driven and treated...all I have to do is listen.
