Available in coupe or convertible, powered by a naturaly aspirated inline 6 in the 128 or the turbo twin power inline 6 rocket sled 135. This car was actually under warranty by the way.

I realize there will be more expensive and frequent maintenence and things break on all cars. The only other issue that I'm aware of is the water pump failing at 80k miles, almost as a rule.

Or the first year for that matter. This will affect resale value, and i am glad it will. The wagon had all-wheel drive added as an option in 2006. However, most applications built in 2010 still carried the twin turbo N54. If I saw that on a test drive, that would be a lost sale.
My car runs well and my checkbook is intact.

The up-level 135i is powered by a new 300-horsepower inline-six-cylinder engine with one turbocharger instead of two that drives the rear wheels. Meanwhile the salesguy was kinda chunky. First off, thanks for all the comments in my thread about the 135i being a good family car or not. Sometimes it takes a long time to start, no longer than 2-3 seconds, but it's still longer than it should take. You can find this information on the driver-side door jamb.
