So the engine in the 128i is an inline 6 which is coded N52 right? The 128i saves not only money but also weight. Compare that to the Toyota Highlander for the same year.

But they are so many tires for the 128i coupe when I search 1010tires or tirerack. They have been faithfully servicing my cute little hardtop convertible ever since.

I've also had to take it back a couple times for minor recalls a seat belt issue and a tail light issue but combined the trips with a free oil change. The mechanics are top notch and thorough. My insurance is very reasonable, it's a new car after all, and if you are over 25 and have a clean file it shouldn't be too much.
But the new 135i has the N54 engine instead of the N55, right? The biggest issue was that I had to be more careful when doing oil changes, to keep track of how much I had poured in.
