BMW 1 Series

The BMW 1 Series is a line of small family cars (C-segment in Europe) manufactured by the German automaker BMW since 2004. Successor to the BMW Compact, it has been produced in four different body styles. This is the first generation, 1 Series, BMW.

BMW E87 (2004–2011): five-door hatchback
BMW E81 (2007–2011): three-door hatchback
BMW E82 (2007–2013): two-door coupe
BMW E88 (2007–2014): two-door convertible

The 1 Series coupe (E82) and convertible (E88) went on sale in the United States and Canada in model year 2008 (30 June 2007) as the 128i and the 135i. Other countries received the 120i and 125i in both platforms. The convertible, unlike the 3 Series convertible, uses a soft-top instead of a folding hardtop.

Auto climate control units should not required the ribbon cable as the factory cable should be long enough. If it has been included in your Auto Climate kit then please disregard.
