2011 BMW 135i DCT Test Drive Review
Read the review I published on BMWBLOG here: http://www.bmwblog.com/2011/04/27/bmwblog-review-2011-bmw-135i-coupe-with-dct/ #
Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V compact digital camera. (Note: Camera looks shaky because I had to hold with one hand and drive carefully with the other).
BMW 135i Fuel Pump Dying (HPFP)
Search "135i hpfp" in Google. Yeah. Crazy isn't it? These things go out all the time. Before you buy a 1 series or a 3 series, you'll want to read up on this long standing issue that BMW has yet to really address. Year after year they replace these things, but they still haven't designed a better HPFP. From informal polls on http://1addicts.com/forums it looks like this effects somewhere between 20-25% of people on the forums. Yikes. Can't wait till my warranty runs out :-(
2009 BMW 135i Cold Start Idling Problems
Happens on cold starts, so far only -10C here, which isn't that cold.
Gas peddle does nothing. I let it run, 10 minutes later I re-start it and it runs fine. Sometimes check engine light stays on, sometimes not.
Car test BMW 135i
In an automobile industry more and more politically correct some carmakers are resisting. For BMW, sport models are a technological show piece. While the M3 has been an icon for years, the coupe version of the 1 Series has little to be jealous of.
2010 BMW 135i M-Sport Coupe Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
I was at the BMW showroom a few days ago to check out the cars for the BMW Innovation Day, an upcoming event organised by BMW Malaysia. Since this weekend was the stop for Penang, the beautiful cars arrived at the dealer for the event. One of the cars is this baby Beemer, the 135i Coupe. It's a nice little car I would say, pretty powerful for its size. This car cost RM423,800 in Malaysia.
