Hers was a loaded factory demo... 2010. Very nice car with 9k miles. Plus it would have been weird to have 2 of the same vehicles.

Also she doesn't need a 135i / 335i.... (she is like a light switch... Throttle is either off or on...)

Nice 135i. Even though you have the smaller car, your trunk is the only one that will hold more than a small duffel with the top down - the hard top 3 convertible has nearly no trunk with the top down.

Nice. I thought about the convertible, but it is actually too hot for it here, if you can believe that.

Yeah. That's why I stopped commuting on a motorcycle. Too much time not moving.

Nice. Most recently, I had a V-Strom, a Shadow, and a couple of Buddy 125cc scooters. All gone now. I might replace them in the fall.

I know what you mean. There are a lot of reviews out there where the writer points out that a 328 is only slightly more expensive than a 135, and imply that any sensible person would select the 328. I appreciate that they have to appeal to a wide audience, but I suspect that at the end of the day these same writers climb into a 335 for the trip home. Car mag writers really love the 3-series.

OTOH, Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear calls the 135 "the best car BMW makes". Works for me.
