Buy what you want. A 1 series convertible is no more a gir car than any other convertible. To some extent, they can all be girly just because women as probably more likely to buy them than men. The more I think about it the only common convertibles I see which I basically never see a girl drive are porsches and corvettes. With every other convertible (Mercedes, BMW, Audi, Lexus, Ford, etc) is not uncommon to see a woman driving.

If you want to make finer distinctions, I can also say I have never seen a woman with a 135i convertible. Lots of 128is, but not a 135i.

The more I think about it the less I care what the perception is, I mean its a 50K car with tons of power and awesome options. I think white is very classy and the vert/DCT is a blast to drive! I think I have a buyer for my car at $23,200 so thinking I might go for it. Its better than getting the black vert they have and not having the navi or harmon kardon sounds system plus ill get to wash it less since my black bimmer gets dirty in 2 days

Haha I was going to suggest a set of Trucknuts to accomplish the same thing.

And I really don't care what anyne says about my white 135 convertible.
No one who's made a comment so far has had a nicer car than me!

No, I've seen a couple other 135i verts, all with men drivers. Never seen a woman driving one and don't expect to. Women may like the 1 and like the convertible version, but they very rarely want to pay even more for 300 hp.

Check out the other posts about Plasti-dip. Painting your wheels and grill black will make this car look awesome and definitely not "girly". And will cost you less than $30. Best yet, if you don't like the look, you can always peel the coating off.

I wouldn't ever allow my choice of a car to be diminished by my co-workers, an anonymous internet forum or the guy at the next gas pump. I drive what I enjoy driving and I enjoy driving my white 128i convertible.

I'm not completely sure what 'girly' means, but I suspect someone is not completely confident in their sexuality.

If you're questioning your masculinity, then don't get it.

Otherwise great car, have fun.

I say no, hell no especially if it has the Sport or M pkg. Nothing wrong with some top free motoring.

I'd rather have a random cool chick tell me 'nice car' than some dude... even if it's one of y'all!
Dude, why are you talking about your cack

I get so conflicted when I drive my 135 vert, so...

I have found that wearing a wife beater t-shirt over a thong makes everything just perfect.

Good god, this topic again? Hello 2008.

Yes it's a girly car and any man that drives a 135 will be accosted non stop by homosexuals everywhere they go.

Don't bend over when checking tire pressure. Squat. Always squat.
