BMW 1 series rental Barcelona - Montpellier RT

I just reserved a 1 series for a trip at the end of this month. Driving up the coast from Barcelona to Montpellier. On the way back I plan to take back roads through Andorra. Should be fun. But I'll wish I had my 335.

Does sound like fun. Tell us how it went when you get a chance. Also,....dont you have a piggy back? Take it with you and install,...would be a great comparison!!

Great drive, I have driven it several times. Why stop at Montpellier? Continue thru to Nice, Cannes then Monte Carlo. Great Roads.

Driving in Europe is much more fun than North America, regardless of whether the car is a 3-series or 1-series...

Sixt. No luck for a 135. Looks like a 4 banger. Lighter weight, better gas mileage. Got work to do at the med school in Montpellier, they're paying the bills... But I think that the Pyrenees will be a blast.

Hopefully it'll be a 120d.. I had one as a rental for a couple of weeks, when I was still living in Deutschland... It was a torque monster on the autobahn
