I am just asking for some buying tips from you guys as the 135i has prooven to have a few surprises along the way with ownership.
Are there any year models to avoid?
Known problems with DCT?
Known engine problems?
Recalls on any components?
I dont particulaly want to move to Mercedes as I like the BMW brand and their styling more. I have found that C63's before 2011 had head bolt issues so im not to keen to jump into anything before that.
Cheers
Five years on it has remained bulletproof. There is nothing wrong with DCT or 6MT. It's your personal choice. Good luck with your impending purchase.
