2013 BMW - 128i convertible. Fun and fast.

I bought my car from CarMax. It has had some issues that I am learning are regular BMW problems bur CarMax has been able to fix them. I runs great but you feel every bump in the road. It is fast and has a luxurious feeling but with the 1 series it is a little confining.

Car is fast, sporty and fun to drive.

So far no problem. The car is fast and sporty the only thing I would recommend is having a spare tire even though the tires are run flats. I still had a flat on the interstate and had to call for a tow truck and the fuse box could be easier to access.

BMW 128i is a fun drive, but lacks technology.

One issue is that there has been an a/c problem that has not been able to be diagnosed by anyone. The car also lacks USB ports for charging. It is a very comfortable car to drive and handles well. It is very responsive and rides well over rough roads.
