    Excellent Car And Excellent Value — I have only had this car for abou 2 - 3 months now and i love it. It is only the 116i so not as much power as my previous beemer but much more economical. Looks great too. Some awesome features as well. Would recommend one of these cars to anyone.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Love everything about it.

    Cons: Run flats make it a bit of a bumpy ride.

    My 130 — Performance – acceleration, braking, handling = All amazing Build Quality – Build is superb, it only needed repairs due to an accident. Appearance – is sexy and very appealing to the eye. have had many ppl compliment me on it.... Cost of Ownership – due to the fact that it is a 3.0L car, it is slighty heavy on fuel, yet it also depends hw u drive Fun Factor – best car i have driven other than my Ferrrari

    Pros: Treats me well and is fast

    Cons: Nothing

    116i M Sport — Assets Fantastically good to drive, distinctive good looks, five-star NCAP crash test score, grips the road, makes some nice noise, 5 doors, 17" alloys Drawbacks hard drive due to sport suspension and run flat tires, more expensive than class rivals, low MPG Verdict " In a class that tends toward the worthy and dull, here is a feelgood car with a real difference "

    Pros: Looks

    Cons: MPG

    Bmw 130i Wolf In Sheeps Clothing — Fast, discrete and RWD, the 130 has excelent performance and can shame many "Sport Cars" I wish its interior had better materials and that the car had a limited slip differential. The car has proven cheap to mainntain and has great fuel conomy for such a pwerful engine

    Pros: power, handling, RWD

    Cons: Interior materials, rear seat space

    Great Value And Fun To Drive — The 120d is a great value fun to drive car. The 120d is a 2.0 model that provides the acceleration and performance you expect from a 3 series on a smaller body and for a better price. Go for the 6-speed automatic

    Pros: acceleration, braking, handling, Appearance,

    Cons: Price, Suspention could be better in lower speeds

    Bmw 118d - M Sport — When the 1 series first was introduced, I really hated the looks of it. after a few months of gettig used to it I learned to appreciate it, and when the M-sports package was available I just loved it! The handling of the car is really amazing, the 50/50 weight balance combined with RWD ensure that this is the best driver's car in its class. 122bhp isn't that much but sufficient for daily use. I did choose to get it tuned however, so today it's got about 160bhp, now it really drives like small sportscar. the chassis of this car deserves a powerful engine! Never had any major issues with this car, except after 2 monthsof owning the car the driving shaft somtimes made a popping sound when changing from 1st to reverse gear & vice versa. Dealership already was familiar with this issue for the 1 seriesso it was solved the next day and never experienced this problem again! Great car, but it is quite expensive

    Pros: handling & performance, driving pleasure

    Cons: pricing, legroom in backseat

    Fantastic Car, But Not Worth The Money — Great car, very good looking with the M sport pack on it. Good performance, although it was power-limited for tax purposes. Nice and finished interior, although a bit small, as it is a hatchback. Rock hard suspension, but you get used to it and it allows good cornering.

    Pros: All that is not con !

    Cons: Power-limited version, not very big on the inside
