What You'll Like
The 135i Coupe and Convertible might be among the more affordable BMW models, but they 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. BMW's convertible setup is also a good selling point. Next to many of the newer retractable hardtop designs, the 1-Series soft-top arrangement is an excellent way to enjoy the sunshine without sacrificing a lot of trunk space.

What's New for 2013
The latest addition to the 1-Series line up is the 2013 135is. The 135is is available as both a coupe and a convertible and is the sportiest 1-Series available from BMW. It features sport tuned suspension, unique 18-inch wheels and an additional 20 horsepower. Cooling has also been improved, with BMW anticipating that many 135is owners will want to use their cars on the race track.

A vehicle’s warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer’s lot, and it’s important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission.
