Love my 128 as well. The extra cost savings from the 128-135 let me add some great cosmetics to the look of the vehicle (don't have much money as I am a college student )

Having owning my 135, and when it was getting serviced my loaner was a 2012 128i, i got in the car and was very soon sadly disappointed. The power was severly limited compared to my 135, but I have a JB4 on it and intakes and it dynoed at 350rwhp and 390 lbs of tq. If I hadn't driven the 135 or owned it beforehand, i probably would have liked the 128i better. Drive both, your decision will be very easy. The N54 power will bring a huge smile to your face!

I drove a 650i M-sport, It was great. I then drove a 135i M-Sport, I was sadly disappointed.

I'd be sadly disappointed when my $40k-$50k 135i was in the shop several times/year. N54 with HPFP? No thanks.

you're 100% right... wait till '08's will start running out of their warranty,
only some of the owners will be able to keep up with proper maintenance

How so compared to your 128? Too much power?

Why is there always at least one 135i owner trolling these threads? Are you seriously that insecure?

Nope just really disappointed in the 2012 128i drove for a day while mine was in service.

Not mad at all. Just wondering how a grown man rationalizes such troll-ish behavior.

The OP was clearly asking 128i owners how they felt about their purchase. Of course some immature, insecure 135i owner would come in here with the same old 128i bashing that goes around from time to time.

Your meme response further reinforces your level of maturity. Congrats.

Yep you pinned me to the T. I'm so insecure and I'm a troll. I'm gonna go drive my car and cry, and maybe go find a LS2 GTO, or Vette to go pick on to make myself feel better.

Oh well back to the big boy N54 section, sorry kids.

well, you did spend a lot of time posting in a thread directed towards 128i OWNERS.

anyway, I've haven't regretted my purchase, my goal is to eventually turn my 128i into a track car in few years. The 128i seems to be a cheaper way to do so.

I'm now at 44k miles. I absolutely love my 128i. I have owned a lot of cars, corvettes, 03' Cobras, S2000, etc.

I have sports suspension and a couple of bells and whistles. The car has no problems with reliability and is fun in the corners. Power is plenty. If you're into drag racing buy something else....lol.

I love this car. I'm glad I didn't buy a 135i. While the power of the 135 was alluring, the issues with turbos wasn't.
