Issues with my used 2009 135i BMW.

I had bought this car used in 2015 and had several issues with it. Luckily my husband was able to fix them all. Some of the issues were the water pump went, the starter went bad, valve cover leaked, exhaust intake pipe broke and several other problems I am not remembering. Seems to always be a warning light on for some reason or another. I love my car and just fig that is what happens when your car gets up there on miles. Very solid car and although the issues I had, I still would buy another one.

It is a convertible. it handles very well. it is attractive.

It is a convertible, and it's very fun to drive with the top down. it handles very well - such as around curves, and accelerates rapidly. My main dislike is the dealership - they take forever with the smallest thing, and they are very expensive. They do not reflect well on the brand.

Convertible is by far the best.

I hate the car. Love it the first year, but need something bigger. Looking for a pick up or cargo van. The car us better fit for someone single and no kids involved. Rides grea5, mileage could be better. Drop top is my favorite feature by far. Yo7 have been updated.

The love I have of my BMW--so I keep paying.

Love the style shape and feel of my BMW. It is a classy car that makes me enjoy driving with the top down. Because we purchased it used we have had to pay for several repairs and they were expensive, like replacing the soft top--the back glass dropped out.

The reliability of a car is more important than its mechanical properties.

The appearance is compact, the fuel consumption is not very high. Generally, it is open motion mode, the power is quite strong, comfortable entry, the induction of the trunk is started, the electric seat is quite satisfactory.

It is a fun great ride! Dependable.

Love my convertible! Love the 6 cylinder. So far, nothing I dislike. The color of the car is a champagne. Interior is grey. Does not have much technology which is fine with me.

It is a Sleeper, very quick but also gets almost 30 mpg

It has the Dinan package, making 400 hp - love the power and handling. Only downsides are frequent carbon buildup in intake and services to the Turbos.

It is big and can take some time to learn to park it.

It is a beautiful car. I love that it is a convertible. It has great pick up. My only complaint is that the electrical system is screwy.

Just the brand name, good looking car.

Expensive parts. Tires are easily losing air, oil problem all the time. Ac belt loosen up making a weird noise like whistle noise.

Premium fuel must be used.

The handle is great. Rides smoothly and is a v6. It is a two door convertible, but has room in the front and back seats.
