The BMW 1-series is a great idea with less-than-stellar execution. We've tried the 128i convertible and the 135i coupe and, you know, it just doesn't quite do it for us. This is the sin of unfulfilled promise and a lot of people around here are a bit disappointed in you. Too many compromises, not enough fun. You're almost there BMW. Don't give up. Say "my bad" and get back in there. Back to the Jalopnik Day Of Atonement main page.
