2008 BMW 128i Convertible

2008 BMW 128i Convertible - BMW 1 Series Luxury Convertible Review - Automobile Magazine
It is snug as a bug with the top up, and what’s not to love about wheeling around in a BMW convertible with the top opened to a perfect sunny afternoon?

Forty-two thousand dollars is a lot of money for a 1-series BMW, especially a 128i. Plus, this convertible version isn’t as good looking or as sharp to drive as the 250-pound-lighter 128i coupe. But those buyers that want a convertible will flock to this car. If you look at the base price, $33,875 buys you a nice BMW softtop. Most of the people who purchase this car won’t care that it handles worse than the coupe; they’ll be too busy enjoying the sunshine. They may not even notice the slightly choppy ride that carries over from the coupe into the convertible. Some slight cowl shake also comes along for the ride, and it’s not helped by the ride quality. I still love this normally aspirated in-line six, but the additional weight of the convertible does dull its grunt at lower rpm. Overall, I much prefer a lightly optioned 128i coupe.

It may be called a concept, but the BMW X1 Concept is a dead ringer for an upcoming compact crossover.

The phrase ‘concept car’ once indicated a vehicle was a showcase of pie-in-the-sky technologies. Now, it’s relegated to pre-production vehicles gussied up with subtle trim changes before their official introduction. Such is the case with the BMW X1 Concept – though it’s appearing at the Paris motor show as a show car, it’s a fairly unobstructed look at the upcoming X1 crossover.

Forget the Porsche 911: if what you want is to be noticed, buy a 2008 BMW Z4 coupe.

Forget the Porsche 911: if what you want is to be noticed, buy a 2008 BMW Z4 coupe. It got more attention around Ann Arbor than almost any other car I’ve driven this spring and summer. They’re just so rare. People don’t quite know what to make of it. I, for one, really like the Z4 coupe’s looks.

2008 BMW M6 Coupe - BMW Luxury Coupe Review - Automobile Magazine
A car with 500 horsepower and ten cylinders under the hood has an undeniable allure.

This V-10 powertrain is certainly more tractable and enjoyable to drive with the six-speed manual than with the SMG transmission that originally was the sole offering in the M5 sedan. A car with 500 horsepower and ten cylinders under the hood has an undeniable allure, but there’s still something somewhat strange, somewhat un-BMW-like, about this M6 coupe. It’s not a sport coupe, really, since it weighs so much and is so big. Yet it doesn’t have the grace of a true luxury coupe, either, like the Mercedes-Benz CL. I don’t quite know what to make of it.

2009 BMW 750i - First Drive Review - Automobile Magazine
Though the 750i and the 750Li don’t appeal to our eyes, visually, the way that the S-class does, the new 7-series has a lot of tricks up its sleeve.

BMW insists that the current 7-series is the most successful 7 ever, but we’re not sure we believe it. With awkward styling (and that’s being very nice) and a dreadful user interface that was inscrutable to twenty-year-old IT geniuses, much less the sixty-year-olds the 7-series was supposed to appeal to, the current 7-series had some big problems.

We love the speed of the 135i but it is hard to beat the pure, smooth power of the normally aspirated BMW inline six.

I’m a big fan of this 128i, more so than our long-term 135i. I know the 135i has the explosive power everyone craves these days, but the substantial cost of that engine makes the 135i a little less attractive to me. This 128i is more than quick enough for my needs and it drives more smoothly because it doesn’t have the huge hit of torque just off idle. The point is you don’t need to get the 135i to have fun behind the wheel. A 128i just might be my favorite Bavarian car for right now.

A little programming short of perfection.

The third time is the charm where two-pedal BMW M3s are concerned. A five-speed automatic transmission offered in the 1995-1999 M3 was for poseurs. The next-generation (2001-2006) M3’s optional six-speed SMG automated manual shifted so neck-snappingly hard that it appealed only to chiropractors.
