I owned a 2007 BMW 328i 4-door for almost 5 years. That car was very comfortable and I would even say that it was fun to drive. As time went on, I found myself wanting more than the ~220ish horse power that the N52 engine had to offer. I also wanted something with steering that felt more connected to the road. I also began to notice that the 6-speed auto transmission was a bit clunky in the tip-tronic mode. I also realized I didn't need 4-doors...
So I began the search for a car like the 328i, but with more power, tighter handling, and a better auto transmission, but with all the interior refinements that I had come to love about my 328i. The 135i fit the bill.
The E85 135i with the N55 engine and 7-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission filled in the gaps I had noticed in my 328i. 300 horsepower is a lot of fun to drive, and you can actually use all 300 horses on a regular basis without getting killed. The M-sport package handling is a huge improvement over the 328i. I feel very connected to the road, and I can confidently toss the car around when I need/want to. The Dual-clutch transmission is amazing. The shifts are only noticeable through the sound of the M-sport exhaust: There is uninterrupted power to the wheels and you just hear this beautiful sound with each upshift. I love that all the interior things I loved about my E90 328i are still present and in the same place in the E82 135i. I did not have to compromise on any of the interior options. The iDrive seems lightyears ahead of the 2007 version. The headlights are beautiful, even if they do cost $1300 each.
My only concern is the harshness of the ride, but that is par for the course with a sports coupe I suppose. I hypothesize that putting non-run flat tires on the car will improve the comfort of the ride, as it feels like these run flats are made of wood.

Great team to deal with! I called ahead and Robert was prepared for my visit. Both Robert and David made the experience a personal one. It felt like I've knew them for years! I will definitely be a repeat customer in the future and will recommend Certified Benz and Beemer to friends and family. Keep up the great work!
Breath-taking drive, fast, hangs in every curve

This car is incredible for a convertible. Like any BMW the drive is worth the money. This car is built for speed and hangs in curves like a dream. The exterior has great lines, looks sharp, and draws looks for sure. The interior is perfect if you are smaller. While it is a four seater it isn't really for adults in the back. though it does cradle you.
I worked with Jan from Carvana- she was able to explain to me the process, make sure I was comfortable with where it was at, was able to be reached and kept communication open. The pick up process went smoothly and I was able to sell my car without any glitches.
Super fun sports car

When we ditched our minivan, we researched hard and long and chose this car. We wanted a convertible with back seats. We also wanted horsepower! And an automanual. This car did not disappoint. Everyone admires it. You zip around like a maniac if you want. No problems at all over 3 years so far. Super tight. Even the big kids make the backseat work and love afternoons on the road.
I had the best experience with Auto Market AZ. I was looking for a Chevrolet truck. I talked to a man named Chayse. I told him what I wanted in this truck and he said give me a few days and wow...he found me exactly what I wanted. I have had no problems and am loving driving my Chevy around! I highly recommend them for any vehicle your in the market for!
Very fun, and an inexpensive, reliable used car.

Just traded mine in on a newer BMW. I believe the dealer sold it within 3 days. Never had trouble with it and for the price they sold it, I believe it’s an EXCELLENT bang for the buck. A very fun car to drive with lots of power. Handling was unbelievably good. I never took it to the racetrack but I believe its handling was good enough that it could beat cars with more horsepower. If you have under $20k to spend on a car but want something to throw you back into your seat, I don’t think you could go wrong with a 135. Especially a drop top.
very nice people here at Rollit. They pre-qualified me before i went in to save the time & hassel like most places. I test drove the car i wanted & next thing i know i was in signing contracts with Dana. Bransen was amazing as well as Dana. I highly reccommend this dealership to anyone.

Good, sporty car

I had a 135i and it was fantastic for getting places quickly and smoothly. I called it my zippy little car. It had a HUGE trunk, I could move full pieces of furniture in that car, so not only was it sleek and sporty, but it was versatile too.
These cars are like hidden secrets. The way they depreciate from new is high even by BMW standards so they make great used cars. 300 HP/300 Torque, check, with lower miles the costs aren't too high either so it's a win win.
