2004 BMW 1 SeriesReview

Rear Wheel Drive Hot Hatch — reasonably quick and economical. Rear wheel drive makes it great a handling the road. Boot is a little small and the space in the rear seats. 2 litre diesel is pretty quick with great overtaking acceleration.

2004 BMW 1 SeriesReview

Go Become A Master —

Basically it took a 30 Minute test drive to convince me to purchase a 120i, the availability of geniune clean used 1 series in the market it has made it a boyhood dream of driving a relatively new BM a reality. The drive i felt like king of the road, the cars doesn't neccessarily need to be pulling you of your seat for it to be exciting you can sit there on the full leather heated seats with the sunroof open and the navigation system telling you to go anywhere that is no-where. It is just exciting the feel the fully balanced ride that this sports car has, yes i said sports car. The way it sits on the road and with no limitations the 1 series just does it with ease. People may say that it doesn't have the oomf! but realistically thats what your M series are for, but to have a car that is comfortable, drives extremely well with all the euro styling for a good entry level price well you wont find anything else. The 1 series will have its slanderers but you should only rate it compared to other cars in its class, please feel free to explain to me how that is VW GTI's or Merc SLKs?

Pros: Makes you feel like a King.

Cons: Dont listen to people who try and compare it to full bore sports cars this is just a sports luxury, starter.

Bmw 135i Small Car - Big Fun By DJKapeesh

Small cars are always fun! Especially with a bombshell under the hood in a rear wheel drive format! DCT tears through the gears adding to the driving experience of an already well balanced vehicle. 53... Read More

Track Worthy By 1ofMANY
