So far, I've taken our long-term 135i for two of its complimentary oil changes, the 30,000-mile service (also at no charge) and one unscheduled service. The unscheduled service visit was to replace a faulty tail lamp, which was covered under the free maintenance program. Good thing, since a tail lamp assembly is more than $600 retail. Thanks to BMWs generous service plan, we've not spent even a dime on service or maintenance.

We've been taking the car to Global Imports in Marietta, GA. This dealership is remarkably clean. Even the service bays are well lighted and have clean floors. Each time I'm there, the dealership is quick to get me in and out, and in the case of the tail lamp, the dealership provided me with a very nice 2012 335d as a loaner, since the car would take longer than three hours to repair. 

This is a very helpful perk, and one I was surprised to receive considering our car is a certified pre-owned BMW and not a new car. The service advisors always have the technicians give the car an inspection, and then it gets cleaned up before I leave. 

Next month I’ll review the overall driving experience of the 135i on the north Georgia mountain roads, some road trips, and its mannerisms in day-to-day Atlanta traffic. I'll also cover how I like the iPhone/iPod connectivity (since I finally got one), along with any other helpful information about this car.
