I live in Naperville. You won't see me driving till the snow is gone! It's covered and stored in heated garage.

Driving in Snow

I take mine out in the Chicago Snow on occasion. It keeps the battery charged and helps me enjoy the car. I just wish the dealer gave car washes when its this cold.

Anyone want to hit up a Cubs game at Milwaukee in April. We can all meet in Chicago and drive up together?

I'm from Downers Grove. If you don't mind me asking, where did you get your car and how much over invoice was the damage? I have not ordered mine yet.... You can PM me if you don't want to post it here.

I have been reading the forums here for a while now but just signed up. Nice to see some Chicago people here. I have yet to see another 135i on the road. Must be the winter, but then again I drive mine in any weather. Cubs game in Milwaukee could be fun.

I'm going to Laurel BMW tomorrow the 23rd to sit down and beat up on their price of a White 135i. I will let you know how it goes.

I would truly appreciate it. Good Luck! That dealer is the closest one to my house, also. I have checked out Patrick BMW via emails only and seem to get better feedback from them, though.....


My 135i will be my daily driver. I have never seen one on the road, either.

My supercharged NSX sits in the garage all winter .

what has patrick BMW been quoting you? That one is a lot closer to my house I just don't really like the sales staff at that dealership.

Thanks for your help but I just got back from Laurel and got a pretty good deal 5% over invoice which is about $1200 over invoice (was shooting for $1000 over), only problem is that I had to order it. I will have it in time for spring though so I'm happy!!
