The BMW 1-series pricing is finally available on the US BMW website. The BMW 135i will have an MSRP of $34,900 plus a $775 charge for delivery and all the whatnots involved with a purchasing a car. The 128i, meanwhile, will start at $28,600 and carry an identical $775 charge for destination and delivery.
Both cars are rear-wheel drive and are powered by inline-six engines: the 128i is powered by 3.0L inline-six producing 230 horsepower, while the top shelf 135i is motivated by the award winner twin-turbo 3.0L inline-six producing 300 HP.
We optioned up a 135i with everything and arrived at an MSRP of $48,995 and the 128i with an MSRP around $44,420. Of course, many of the options that are being installed at the dealer are not part of these numbers. Even though we find the 135i's price to be a little high, we have to remember that we are still paying less than our friends in Europe.
Despite the high price on both vehicles, the deamnd for them is pretty high and there are long waiting lists at the U.S dealers.
