im surprised you were able to find 1 this late in the game! sales must be slow in Canada.

There is not 1 left in Jersey (except a couple convertibles)

There's lots of product in Toronto. I bought right off the showroom floor. "I like that one."

The deal was done within ten minutes and I'm $47k lighter.

Pics tomorrow morning!

A few pics. I can't believe how nice this car is to drive. Despite all the glowing reviews everywhere, I am still shocked at the beauty and handling of this car.

I took my Mazda 3 back to the dealership today and the sales manager saw my 1 Series and frowned: "No way can I beat that." LOL

I had a Mazda 3 GT 2.3 litre which was pretty lousy on gas for such a small car. My BMW rep told me that I should do better on gas in my 128i which blew my mind! Make sense???

This is the first Bimmer I have owned and I just can't believe how total the experience is. And given the potential resale value, how can you go wrong???

I am happy!

Congrats on your 128... My GF has a Mazda 3 and going from that to my 1 there is no comparison. The 1 blows it away in every single way, as it should. Love the performance rims... Are those 18's???

haha ya they are the style 263's (only on 128i sport pk in canada).

As for the gas. i cant say its better then the 3 but its actually better then the mazda6 gt-v6 i came from. It was quite comical returning the car. After awesome attentive service picking up the 1...i had to deal with the mofo's at mazda. The sales managers only word were "so your moving on up now?" i just said yes...and walked alway and drove home in the 1.

I had EXACTLY the same experience. I felt totally taken care of when I picked up my 1 and then to return to the shitty Mazda frowners barking "where is the antenna, where is the manual" and so on.

Buh bye

Wait a second... you paid 47k for "128i Coupe, Sport Package, Sunroof, Cashmere, USB in Sparkling Graphite"

I picked up my 128 vert with Sportpkge, CA, Xenons and usb for 45k... so how is 47k a 1k savings?
