This is what I traded my 135i for.

Sold my old 135i a couple months ago, needed something a little bigger for all of my photography gear. You can tell I like my cars white, with dark wheels

here is my sold 135i

yeah, I've always like the Tahoe. I was all about performance with my last four cars. its time to settle down a little and go the speed limit. plus I needed something with a lot of room to carry all of my photography equipment.

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

HaHaHa! My cousin traded his 330ci in for a Tahoe a few years back, but he still drives 85 mph on the Hwy.

Very nice Tahoe

It's not for everyone, as stated before, the switch was strictly for practical reasons. (Carrying all of my camera equipment)
