Expert Quotes:

Popular Mechanics

throw on a premium package...you're in the neighborhood of $39,000
Road & Track

All convertibles also come with a power-operated soft top and an upgraded climate control system
Edmunds

A silver lining for stick-shift fans like us is that BMW has decided to charge $200 more for the DCT option in the 135i on top of last year's already pricey $1375 automatic option
Automobile Magazine

At the other extreme, the 135i comes standard with a sport suspension and 18-inch tires, a combination that reacts much more sharply to bad pavement, yet never feels harsh.
ConsumerGuide

Like any BMW, the 2011 BMW 1-Series features a high-quality standard equipment package, including keyless entry, power accessories, steering-wheel controls, and on the 128i Coupe, HD Radio capability.

Optional upgrades include navigation, a power sunroof for the coupes, and a power-folding cloth top on the convertible models. The cloth top can even be raised or lowered at speeds up to 30 mph to obviate the need to pull over to soak in a sunburst or take shelter from a sudden shower.

The price tag can climb quickly when adding options, driving the cost above $40,000 with the addition of premium packages and electronic features.

Conclusion

While the base spec of the 2011 BMW 1-Series is feature-packed, beware the effects of adding lots of options on top—the price can quickly push into 3-Series territory.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
