Upstate SC

Anyone have a 1 series in the upstate of South Carolina? I haven't yet seen one on the road so just curious how many are out there.

Common misconception. The upstate is the area in SC where the foothills of the blue ridge mountains are - the main city being Greenville, SC.

Clemson University and the Spartanburg BMW plant are both in the "upstate" area.

Just took delivery of my SBM 135i friday. I live in Lexington, just outside of Columbia. I've only seen 1 1Series, a beige vert on the road. Very few of us around.

I don't suppose North Augusta qualifies as "Upstate".

I live in Lexington, SC too. Haven't seen any other 135i yet but should run into SlaminSam at some point. I have a blue water 135i coupe.

I drove all he way from Orlando to Bryson City NC and back (with overnight stops in Savannah and Asheville) last week without seeing a single 1er en route. Damn I love how rare this car is.

You should have been there on Sunday, six of us (3 -1235i's) did 200 miles in the mountains of SC & NC.
I absolutely love the 135i on the twisty mountain roads. A slow poke in front, no problem, all that torque makes for a very quick pass.
