my 335 sedan had the feeling of pivoting around my hips when i took a corner. when i replaced that car with an AMG and then wanted another 335 i decided i wanted a coupe. so i went a test drove the coupe and something about the longer doors made the car feel awkward to me. but i was just going to buy it anyway. just as im starting to work numbers with the dealer i see a 135 on the sales floor. i decided to take it for a test drive and fell in love. ive had a few people ask me why i didnt get the 3 and i tell them to drive the two and then tell me which one they would pick. the 1 is so much more alive than the 3. also i live in L.A. and a 3 series here is like a civic in the rest of the world. even though technically the 1 is cheaper, you see a lot less of them. i just had a 328 loaner car and i can appreciate it for what it is, but in my50 unit apartment building alone there are like 15 e9x's.
