Total package-never thought a convertible could be so fun!

2012 BMW 1 Series

Love my car, extremely comfortable with many features that make driving fun! A/c blows amazingly, heated seats are probably my favorite and Bluetooth features make for going from place to place fun. Another favorite I must add is the speed. . . You know how it is when your at a red light and it turns green? Yes, I am first one out the gate! No buyers remorse here!

Perfect small but gorgeous sport car

2012 BMW 1 Series 128i

As a compact and nimble coupe or convertible, the 2012 BMW 1 Series makes for a nice weekend getaway car, with ample room for two people and a few days' worth of luggage. Though the backseat can accommodate two passengers if necessary, it's best suited for use as a secondary storage shelf, as lack of rear legroom makes for a tight fit for two full-grown adults.

My car is an amazing car! It has a great set up system and I just love it.

2012 BMW 1 Series

The only reason I do not like it is because you cannot sync your music without plugging your phone into the car but others it's pretty good. The car sometimes just like glitches and does weird stuff but that only happens every great once in a while. I love the car though.
