Personally I admired the new design of 1-series coupe by BMW. I have test driven a 3-series myself and I was flattered because it does not deserve a thumbs up. However there is just something about the 1-series coupe that can’t be found on other BMW models out there. Actually just last week BMW officially announced the 2012 BMW 1-series, which has became the talk of mouth in the auto industry. The main features is actually the 135i which showcases the newest N55 engine which is also a 3.0-liter inline-6 engine. Personally I can say it’s eco-friendly since it uses diesel gasoline and has low mileage. Besides,The 135i can be equipped with the 7-speed double clutch transmission (DCT) which we’ve seen before on the new Z4 roadster and other BMW models.
To date there are only two versions available in the market with this update, the 128i Coupe and the 135i Coupe. The 128i is powered by a 3.0-liter engine producing 230 bhp and and could run on its standard speed limit. It features the BMW Valvetronic throttle-less intake technology and an aluminium/magnesium construction which are some of the core elements of the BMW EfficientDynamics program. Apart from the excellent features, no one can deny that the maintenance of this model is quite easier compared to other car brands. These days, there are a lot of parts store online that offer quality BMW parts and accessories, which can be accessed using the wide coverage of the internet.
