Great car, gas mileage sucks
Source: Cars.com

..."This is a fun car to drive, sporty looking, powerful, etc.
It would be wonderful if BMW could also figure out the magical formula of making a high-performance car with some sort of fuel efficiency.
After 2 months of driving this car, both city and highway, it only averages 14mpg."...

Like a 4-seat Miata...Fun Fun Fun

...My 2011 128i Convertible has 8,000 miles with nary a problem.
Changed the run-flats to Contintental DWS regular tires the first week and it was like driving a completely different car--much better ride.
Comfortable seats and just a blast to drive. In some ways better than the 3 series--top down at least you have some useable trunk space with the 128.

I pull a skid-loader on a regular basis and hav no problems with towing...

...Finding this car with a minimum of dealer added extras is difficult and may entail European delivery.
Nonetheless, I was in a market that allowed me to shop amongst dealers.
I drove a number of coupes and sports cars and failed to find a car that met this one's road handling, acceleration and overall value.
The engine's quiet purr and the solid feel one gets from the steering wheel needs to be experienced and balanced against the competition at this price...

Its Awesome.

...I love my Camaro. There's nothing like flying down the highway in a legendary American muscle car with the T-Tops off and the radio blasting the classic rock.
She's got 135,000 miles and running stong. I wouldn't want to drive anything other than a Camaro...
