Not bashing the 135i....actually never driven the N55 engine yet and it must absolutely be smashing to drive. Drove my uncle's 2008 M3, so I know that I could enjoy more power.....but for me?
23 years old when I bought my 128i with 6MTnew in June. One of the dealers asked me why I hadn't gone with the 135i, while I surely could afford it, I just wanted a pure N/A engine. Coming from a MKIV GTI I did not want to hear a turbo, and if I did I know I could always hop into my GTI and open it up!
But the 128i was perfect for me. 6 speed, GREAT handling, I6 engine. Period. The sunroof and P1 package with heated seats, heated steering wheel were just a nice bonus. Besides I love using the sunroof in the summer.....but the girls dont
I bought what I want, and I am extremely happy!
