Review: 2008 BMW 128i Convertible

CNET Car Tech reviews the 2008 BMW 128i Convertible.

Except for its price, the 2008 BMW 128i Convertible may be the least BMW-like car from the automaker.

But where its turbo-charged brother, the 135i, feels glued to the road, the 128i Convertible's wheels seem to stretch away from the car in the corners. And where the 135i leaps forward with smooth and hard acceleration, the 128i Convertible's power delivery feels uneven.
