Demos at BMW Toronto

I called BMW Toronto today to see if they had any 1er in the showroom. They sure did, a 135i Coupe and 128i Conv. My buddy and I were admiring it when the sale assistant asked "Do you want to drive it?". We both said, "Na, not interested." Lol, more like I fell on the floor hyperventilating!

The sale rep brought around a beautiful black 135i M-sport. Absolutely 100% amazing, we drove around Toronto for about 1/2 an hour - smiles on our faces the whole time!

I floored it coming around the on-ramp to the DVP at Adelaide. Absolutely planted, with just a wee bit of wheelspin as I shifted into 3rd (!) blasting into the merge zone. I was at 170 before I knew it - all three of us were surprised. The adjective was kept using was "solid" - handling, steering, interior, size - all perfect.

All that to tell you that BMW Toronto has cars you can drive now. Their launch event is 1-Apr but they're ready to drive now! If you need a test drive buddy - let me know! :thumbup:

Enjoy!

PS: In all the excitement I forgot to take photos, you can hardly blame me. I guess that means I'll have to go back! I did manage to snap a shot of one of the billboards that have popped up all over Toronto in the past week.

Saw the same cars I think. It's the highrise 5-floor dealership, right? They had a 128i 'vert in Cashmere and a metallic black 135i M Sport with black interior. Go see Tony, he's awesome - sold my Dad his first 5-Series 10 years ago...

You got it, spud. That's the place and those are the ones. The one I drove was identical to the black 135i in the showroom.
