I thought about it a lot, but in reality, it is outside of my price range

Next time I'm at a dealer I think I will take one for a test drive. I would like one but I think the price is a little high for me at the moment.

I like it. not something I can afford at + 40K FOR 135. the 128 would not be as fun. and they are both fairly small. the women in the articles' pictures seem more of the right fit for this car. NOT that I would not drive it, if I had the chance. that 135 has to be a little work horse out on the road!!! a true beast

I have test driven both 128 and 135 at one of the BMW Beta Test event. The 135 can fly!!!! Once you have got a hand on the 135, and it will be hard to get down to 128. But for price wise, 128 is more than enough as it can make 0-60mph within 6.1s....... which is not bad after all!

One nice coupe that I had never driven!!!

I've driven a bunch and I really like them. I would probably have purchased one, but I love my Honda.

On a side note...

"goggle-eyed daytime running lamps—two perennially glowing Hula-Hoops with design inspiration by Harry Potter."

Goggle-eyed hula hoops? Whoever wrote that article is a complete and utter dumbass and needs to be fired from Car and Driver, because he obviously doesn't know jack shit about what he's writing about. They're called angel eyes you tard!

I just built my own on bmwusa.com!!!! Even with the options i would want, on the 128i, it comes to 35,000 bones.... (gives real google eyes O.o) but it looks pretty nice with the aero dynamic kit on it... its a cool little sports car...
