2011 BMW 1 Series M Review

Find a Used BMW 1 Series M in your area!

The 135i Coupe and Convertible might be among the more affordable BMW models, but they now come with one of BMW's best gearboxes--the available 7-speed dual-clutch DCT. The 1-Series' unencumbered driving feel is certainly a selling point for those who enjoy a curvy road. Like much of BMW's lineup, the 1-Series is among the best-steering vehicles in its class with excellent handling and poise to boot. The convertible setup is also a good selling point; next to many of the newer retractable hardtop designs, the 1-Series soft-top arrangement proves itself a good way to enjoy the sunshine without sacrificing a lot of trunk space.
