BMW 135i M-Sport. The Blue Beast!
This a fast, fun, sports coupe and best of all--manual gearbox! For a true car enthusiast, this is one of the best available in Chicago. And for the price, I would say in all modesty its the best. The 1-series is a lighter, sportier version of the 3-series. It is a ton of fun.
Great upgrades to one of the best BMWs of all time. Twin turbo inline 6 cylinder with tune and bolt-ons is easily over 400hp at the wheels. 0-60 this car is similar to Corvette, faster than a Porsche Cayman. The torque is unbelievable and available in every gear and RPM. Running on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, the best all-around performance tire, they handle great on wet or dry pavement. M-Sport package includes improved suspension and has great adjustable seats. We have done plenty of road trips and its a daily driver for me.

If you have an iPhone, the car is equipped with Apple's CarPlay for music, podcasts and navigation. See the pictures. If you don't have an iPhone, its just a great AM/FM radio :)
Seats 4. The rear seats are good for kids. Adults will fit--I've sat there and its fine for short trips. The rear seats fold down and the cargo capacity is bigger than you might think. I do Costco runs every month.
Please return with a full (or close to full) tank of premium. Have a great trip!!
