Outstanding car. 300hp twin turbo provides great acceleration. No noticeable turbo lag. Car handles well. Good mileage. Back seat tight but it's really a 2 person sports car. Plenty of trunk room with top down. Much more than if it had a hard top. This model had some problems with fuel pump but a recall resolved that and pump now guaranteed for 100,000 miles so a non issue.
Great car if you like high performance sports car convertibles. It can't be beat!
2008 BMW 1351er - Fort Lauderdale, FL10/08/2008
One of the most fun cars I have driven to date. There is no lag for the turbo and it just goes like a bat out of hades. The sport package is a must. With it you get the amazing seats and nice thick steering wheel. That is the only option that is a must on this car. The others are nice, but the sports package is the only necessary one in my opinion. Handling is amazing. A little bit of body roll in the corners, but it wouldn't take much to make this car sit perfectly flat and be a track monster. I can't say enough how much power is always on tap in this car. You step on the gas in any gear at any rpm and the thing turns into a little rocket ship.
I have had only one issue and that has been the rear trunk tail light cracking. It was replaced under warranty by BMW with no issues at all.
So far I've been averaging about 20 MPG which is impressive to me considering all I do is dip into the imense power at almost every opportunity.

2008 BMW 135NurburgringDriver - Irvine, CA06/22/2010
I miss my 135i, but I need a larger car.
This 135i was originally delivered to me in Munich, Germany where I took it to the autobahn. It cruises at 140mph easily and is smooth as silk. It was a joy to drive.
