Not a fan of the interior actually. I like the more 'executive' feel of the e90, a lot like the 7 series.

Can't help but feel gipped on the braking set up though. Wish my 335i would've come with brembos (don't the 1's?) stock.
Difference, I like to point out is planning vs. actual. Do those M3s have markup?

its an awsome car. I dove the same color combo 135 that my 335 is. Its awsome. The thick M wheel like my Z4M has is great. The car is not as floaty at the 335 and the brakes are close to what my M has. Great car can't wait for mine to come in.

I agree with all of the above. The wheel is one of the nicest features. It really feels like a driver-centric interior.

If I wanted a car of that size, I would get a E46 330i ZHP.

Nevertheless, that is a very nice car and what a lucky guy - first 1-series in the US.

I saw a beige 135i cruising on La Cienega Blvd. about 3 weeks ago. It did not look like a test car that you commonly see driving on the streets of Los Angeles. Random guy driving it, talking on his cellphone and California plates.

Just saw a 128i convertible when I was having my service done at Circle Motorsports in NJ this past Saturday. They had two in the back ready to be prepped. Looks like a midget E46 to me.....

Dash almost looks like a cross between the E46 and the current X3. Very Nice! Can't say the same for the exterior, but its not bad given the surface area they had to work with. All in all, I bet its a blast to drive.

Might have been a BMW employee or a magazine reviewing it. I saw a train of Crystler Pacifics a week before they were released, and, I have also seen the new Lexus LX a few weeks before it's release.

dont, you gonna miss the nice solid feeling fomr the E90, which is a much better and nicer built car. I spent 2 days with 1 series, driving a lot, and when I got my E90 i was very very happy to be in it, dispite that 1er was very good fun to drive. You don't see the details on test drive, but spend few days with it and youll start noticing things, like worser sound proofing, doors closing with more of a metallic sound, cheaper dash materials, etc. The rear seats in it btw are only good for a pair of footballs. Not sure at all why they are there, as they cant be used by people with legs.
