Your Ridiculously Awesome BMW 1-Series Wallpaper Is Here

The BMW 128i doesn’t really get a lot of love these days, but it was a pretty decent car when it arrived. While it is considered BMW’s compact car, it shares most of its components with the E9x generation 3-series. It’s only slightly smaller than the 3-series and weighs just about the same. The 1er Coupe is actually an inch taller than the 3-series, and shares the same track width.

It was an odd move for BMW, but in today’s world it actually looks a bit attractive, if a smidge quirky. The lower rocker panel is my least favorite feature, but the front and rear fascia are quite good, and the proportions look a little bit like a modern 2002.

I know I’m commenting on a dead story here, many months late, but just in case anyone is still there I just wanted to say THANK YOU. Because of this random Weekend Wallpaper post and the comments the followed, I went out and bought one! Couldn’t be happier. Had wanted a fun car for a long time and had been looking at old Boxsters and Caymans, mostly, but because of this post I decided the 128i would be a better fit for me; perfect for my needs! I just found the perfect one (the perfect 1!) and have been enjoying it the past two weeks.
