(Still) On the fence

About to make an order for a 128 M Sport next week. Given how I optioned the car, the annual budget difference compare to the 135 M Sport would be $450, that's why I'm having second thoughts tonight...

We can only assume that you haven't driven the 135i.....!:-) 'Cause if you had...you wouldn't be asking your question:-)

I have actually, but so far reason (meaning the 128) has taken over.

Did you factor in insurance premium differences, too? Not sure if it'll be different, but it might.

I didn't ask for a quote on the 128 since the MSRP is not so far from the 135 (given how I optioned the 128) and I have the quote for the 135. In my calculation I just assumed the premium is the same for both car. I will certainly save a bit more with the 128 but not that much.

Are you going auto or manual? The steptronic in my 328i is slow and not much fun, wasn't doing that again. I think the DCT in the 135i will be much more fun to drive.

I'm going AT but still hesitating. So far all my cars have been manual but recently I've had enough of it especially when I'm sitting in stop-and-go traffic. It's not the main part of my commute but enough to be annoying. If go 135, I'll definitely take the DCT.

If you're going auto... Go with the 135i bro. The DCT is just a different experience. Also what kind of options are you getting on your 128i if you don't mind me asking?
