Please welcome my new 2012 135i 6M Convertible!

I have to admit that I am not too crazy about the wheels, however I do think they compliment the Titanium Silver. Anywho, these wheels/tires will be hibernating shortly while I run an exising set of snows for the next 5 months...great little snowmobiles!

Welcome back! Yeah, not certain about the wheels...they look very familiar.

I have owned ALOT of cars since I started driving 27 years ago, and I have spent time driving semi exotic cars like 911's, Panamerica's, and have been tempted by Cayman's, but few have ever felt so right to me like these 135s (911 not-with-standing - cant afford 'em). The One is Smooth, comfortable, torquey, and even practical. Yea they understeer, but they also ride very well and are quiet too. They offer a nice reserve of GO, without constantly reminding you that its sporty.

I also think that short of an M3, nothing BMW has comes close to these for all around competence - especially for the money. That fact that they are rare, means that these are our little secrets of greatness.

There I feel better...I am a One Series Addict for sure.

Black Boston (w/o Sport package) and Poplar wood. While the base seats are not as supportive as the Sport seats (as equiped in my '08), they are comfortable and are roomier.

Can't say the same for the convertible's pinched rear seat...wow is that tight-LOL! I am a near empty neaster though and this is still way better than no rear seat at all!

Congratulations Sir! That's a beautiful car. I plan on putting an order in this summer/fall for either a Space Grey or Montego (or Le Mans) Blue. Can't wait! I just love the silhouette of the car!
