Not Duped by BMW

I've had my 2009 135i for two years now and no serious problems to note. To address the reviewer who was "duped by BMW", I was sent a recall notice in the mail and called by my dealership to fix the problem with the fuel pump. Like any other car, there is a problem or two and if you expect it to be perfect than you are naive. I don't think this guy was duped by BMW but duped by the dealership and that is not a fault of the car. If you ever have a problem like that with your dealership you should call corporate and make a formal complaint because they likely have no idea how a dealership is being run if people don't tell them. Unfortunately, your dealership experience can completely ruin the satisfaction of the car, which it shouldn't. My 135i has been wonderful and gets looks and comments anywhere I go. Anyone that rides in the car is completely shocked when you really open it up. It also beats just about anything on the road such as 370z's, G35's, Corvettes M3s, S5's etc. If you're going to get one, seriously consider getting a manual transmission. It is SO smooth and livens this car up like you wouldn't believe! If you don't know how to drive one, LEARN! Overall the best car I've ever owned and probably close to the best I've ever driven. The introduction of the 1M could make this car a legend.

Best D Driver/enthusiast car on the market <$50K

I've owned a 135i MSport since 10/2010, it was a replacement for a 2008 Audi A3 3.2. The base 135i is a great car in many respects, 300HP, great handling, easy to park and great highway mileage. I use the car for commuting and have close to 20,000 miles on the car with zero problems. I like the car so much that I've ordered a 2012 BMW 1M. I've owned over 20 cars in the last 30 years, VW, Subaru, Audi, Mercedes, Porsche and for the $$ and practicality the BMW 135i cannot be beat for a car under $50K.

cool facts: sport mode will change your throttle response,will adjust suspension ,speed up the paddle shift gear changes and will change exhaust note!! the car goes head to head up to 100mph with new 414hp m3 we did it 4 times ,the car will do 0-60 in 5s on the paper ,we used clock and got 4.6s there is no way nothing what is not 500hp will keep up with you from lights as you are very very light! THE BRAKES!!Your eyes will pop i promise. your mpg will be 17.5-19.5mpg dont dream of more comfort: do not turn on sport mode and you can cruise with your spine in place. i think the car is NOT pretty,takes time to like it,but when u sit inside it all changes:) Easy to park,easy to turn,gets looks. The new gps and media system its nothing short from SUPERB! ATTACK the corners only first class drivers will be able to keep up with you. THE CAR WILL BRING SMILE ON YOUR FACE EVERY TIME YOU PUSH START!

The most enjoyable car to drive.

It has been in the news that there is a recall on the BMW turbos. I had a fuel pump failure at 1500 miles!!!! My car stopped dead on a four lane highway, a miracle I was not killed. The car is really fun to drive though but I am considering pursuing a buy-out from BMW as I just do not feel I own a safe dependable car!

Awesome, Minus Reliability

by from Ohio on March 2, 2017

Loved the car, minus the huge repair bill shortly after warranty was up. These are notorious for fuel pump issues, and apparently fuel injector problems too, seeing I had those go out too.
