Our friends from BMW Blog reviews the 2011 BMW 135i Coupe with DCT. After 2500 miles on the odometer, they wanted to share with us their unbiased review of the vehicle's handling and braking, engine and transmission, exterior design, and interior design. Here in an excerpt:



I recently picked up a few things for the house from local IKEA. The 60/40 split rear seat fold down giving you access to the trunk for more cargo room. I was able to easily fit in a table lamp and desk packaged in a small flat box. So not only is the 1er Coupe fun, it’s practical…for a coupe. I can take a couple golf bags in the trunk when my friend and I head to the links on Saturday mornings. Try doing that in a Porsche Cayman. On Easter weekend, my wife and I packed our weekend luggage and beach gear and took a 4-hour road trip to Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I drove 3 hours straight without feeling agitated or tired. It was my first time using the navigation system which was spot on with the guidance. I had a chance to play with the menus and learned you can have the directions listed similar to Google Maps – it even adjusts the miles as you progress on the trip.

Final thoughts – this car puts a smile on my face every time I get in. The 135i Coupe was made for people who love to drive. I don’t see myself growing tired it anytime soon. Unless Horatiu hands me the keys to his Valencia Orange 1M Coupe this summer.
