I apologize if it seemed like i wasn't being rude. I support anyone buying any car that fits their needs and taste and I love 128i's. I just thought your point in the specific post I was responding to was a bit silly.

I agree that low end torque and a nimble car make for an enjoyable vehicle. Thats part of the reason I was so attracted to the 135i and the 1 series in general.
