I was washing my car at my parents' house (I live in a condo) and the neighbor across the street came over excitedly and kept praising my car. He said he witnessed a 135i take on an M3 on the freeway and was impressed how it was neck and neck all the way. Before I knew it, he handed me his cell phone and jumped into the front seat and said "take a picture of me in the car so I can send it to my friends in Hong Kong so they'll think it's mine!".

I had a kid at a drive through once and he said "woah! is that a 1 series?" I replied " yes it is" and he asked " is it a 1m?" I grabbed my food and smiled " sure buddy" and drove off.

Guy at discount tire when I was getting new rubber:
-So you need new tires for the M3 right?
I was flattered he thought my 128 was an M3 but a little worried at the same time to let him work on my car.

I get the " why didn't you buy a 3 series" all the time. Or the " my golf is faster than that". Heard that one at work Friday.

The most depressing question you could ask a 1-series owner:

Them: "Is that a 1M?"
Me: "No."


Once I had a mechanic at a tire mounting shop try to call me out on my car's interior ///M badges until I schooled him on what the M-Sport package was.

Salesman: I'll double check on that because my son told me...
LoL
So few people know what these cars are all about!
Ended up picking up a 2010 getting lots of looks everything! And since it's almost blacked out completely looks pretty aggressive too.
No offense intended, but I think that Salesman may have been better at his job than you realized.


The depressing thing I hear from those with some knowledge of the 1 series is always "is that a 1M?"

The thing I always hear from people with no clue is "just a 1? Maybe in a few years you can get a 3 series."

I've had mine for a little over 36 hours now and I've already gotten some silly comments on it by my friends.

"Not always is about how fast it is...I know it's fast, and an overall good car.But is the size...same thing as a guy should not drive a VW Beetle.
And is not average size anymore..." -Romanian Vlad

While discussing purchasing a 135i over a 335i with an assistant property manager at a different property through texts. She thought I should get the 335i because of how small the 135i are:

Me: 135i aren't THAT tiny.
Her: Yes they are.
Me: Just sat in one
Me: Not that tiny
Her: Lies.
Me: Lol, if I get it over the 335i, you'll be my first passenger
Her: And I'll giggle at how I have to hug my knees

Still got dat 135i doe.

Had a guy come up to my window once.. Just stared at the car for a minute and said "I've never seen the actual 1M in person before!" ...... He also drove a 135i convertible. Facepalm.

I have a 11 135m sport vert and I live outside Charleston, SC. A couple of weeks ago going home from a bad day at the golf course, I was at a light on a 4 lane road waiting to make a left when I looked over and this guy in a 90's Dodge pick up in camo paint, with dog cages in the bed, is pointing at me and waving his arms so I rolled down the window and he yells at me and says " That car is the shit and I know that bitch can hunt" Would of never thought he would even know what a BMW was but it put a big shit eating grin on my face

Hope you thanked Dr. Phil. That line would make a great license plate surround, too. That's hilarious.

This thread is gobs of laughter. Thank you all for sharing.

I was once with my fiancee meeting her aunt because she was in town for her 60th high school reunion or something. I had just bought the car maybe two weeks ago, my fiancee explained what it was to her aunt and she simply replied "oh, its cute".

Some lady I work with:

Her - "Why didn't you buy a man car? Isn't that the chick BMW car?"

Me - "Uh.. no? It makes over 400hp to the wheels right now..."

Her - "Well I drive an R/T Challenger, nothing can touch American Muscle."

Me - "Interesting, because I have taken down a couple cam/long tube header/intake/tune SRT8's, a bunch of Mustangs, Camero SS's.. "

Her - "What's an SRT8?"

Me - "I think we are done here."

I think it was over as soon as you started with "some lady I work with" as the premise. =P
