The 135i Coupe and Convertible might be among the more affordable BMW models, but they now come with one of BMW's best gearboxes--the available 7-speed dual-clutch DCT. The 1-Series' unencumbered driving feel is certainly a selling point for those who enjoy a curvy road. Like much of BMW's lineup, the 1-Series is among the best-steering vehicles in its class with excellent handling and poise to boot. The convertible setup is also a good selling point; next to many of the newer retractable hardtop designs, the 1-Series soft-top arrangement proves itself a good way to enjoy the sunshine without sacrificing a lot of trunk space.
BMW's compact 1-Series Coupe and Convertible models carry into 2011 mostly unchanged, but the 135i models get two important upgrades that bring better performance. A new single-turbo setup replaces the former twin-turbo arrangement in the 135i, and while it has identical power and torque ratings it brings better response and improved acceleration. Also, the 7-speed Double Clutch Transmission (DCT), which combines very quick automated shifts with the control of a manual transmission, is available on the 135i models for the first time.
The 1-Series is offered in two different two-door body styles: a coupe or soft-top-equipped convertible. Both of these body styles can be specified in 128i or 135i form. The 128i comes with a 230-horsepower, 3.0L in-line 6-cylinder engine, while the 135i models get a 300-hp, 3.0L turbocharged six.
