Zim, Zimmer, Who Got The Keys To Ma BIMMER!!!!

AdvantagesLooks, Drive experience, interior, the gadgets.

DisadvantagesPossible expensive insurance premium and fuel consumption depending on your driving

"...got to share my mums BMW for a while, which was great. It wasn't the newest but it was a BMW.After driving that I couldn't really got for anything else as the sheer power and quality of the car drew me in. I drove my mates Fiestas and Polos but nothing could match up to it. Then a driving drought came, I didn't renew the cars insurance with my name on it so I took the good old 'reliable' London Transport. After a year or so doing that and getting ..." Read review

BMW 1 series as an everyday family car

AdvantagesPlenty. Residual values are also truely astonishing!

DisadvantagesThe rear doors - they don't open very wide and it's hard to manage getting very young children and the elderly in and out

"...to a Peugeot 206; a BMW Z3 to a VW Golf; from a LandRover Discovery to Porsche 911; and from a BMW 330d Sport to a Fiant Punto Mia (1.2). Most recent ly we changed from a BMW X3 to a BMW 116i Sport. If asked to choose which of all the cars we have owned I would recommend the most, I would say that depended to whom the recommendation was being made; however, if like us you have a young family and an active lifestyle, although you might imagine the ..."

BMW 116i

Advantages Superb Handling, Luxurious Ride, Classy, Amazing Looks

DisadvantagesSmall rear spaces, Poor rear visibility

"...financial aspects and inusrance details. The BMW 1 Series, is BMW's 2nd attempt to create a small, hatchback car, the previous one being the 3-Series Compact, which accroding to popular opinion was definetely not one of BMW's best. My family were in the market for a new car, and my father was looking to buy a small practical city car, and had practically settled on the VW Golf 5. However when we both attended a car exhibition, I completely fell ..." Read review

Making Up The Numbers

AdvantagesGood price

DisadvantagesHeavy; Poor visibility; Pointless starter button

"BMW first attempted to sell their souls to the Devil in the 1990s with the introduction of the 3-series Compact, a sort of half-arsed attempt at making a hatch-back version of their market-domineering executive saloon. The problem with the Compact was that it wasn't at all like the 3-series and just sort of shared its name. It wasn't as good as the full size 3-series to drive, either, and the interior was cheap and tacky. BMW declared that it was ..." Read review

Quick review of BMW 116i

"Had a thirty minutes or so with this model, it gets my green light despite its quirky looks & daylight robbery price tag. Good road handling, inspires bullish cofidence on the road, nice motorway cruiser, good braking system, practical, good lights, firm ride but not for the oldie goldies though, good m.p.g., feels bigger than it is, able to fill most roles from Tourer, day shopper to rep running. However the design fault with the indicators may drive you made, & the once middle class lable has now become, dare I say it "a little common." Expect to see Kev & Tracy stickers on the windshield in the future.

BMW 116i

AdvantagesBrilliant drive

DisadvantagesLack of power at low speed

"I LOVE MY 1 SERIES! The first time i saw them, i wasnt sure of the back bit, and thought it came down too quickly, but now i wouldnt swap it for any car in this price catagory. It is quick when you get up to motorway speeds, but at lower speeds, it is not very quick as it is a heavy car, but apart from that, i dont have anything bad to say about this car. The Ipod connection you can get as an extra is much better than the standard av input, really ..." Read review

BMW 116i review

AdvantagesExcellent handling and very reliable

DisadvantagesHeavy steering at low speeds

"Ok, generally, there's nothing wrong with this car. Although the engine is slightly noisy (which is common for 1.6 litre engines), the handling is extremely superb!!! When tackling corners, the car is fast and make you feel very 'high' though. The ride very smooth, especially on open roads. Now, to the interior. Inside, it is comfortable and nicely furnished. The stereo system is MP3-based and has good speaker sets. But, the only thing i feel ..." Read review

BMW 116 ES......... Disaster - don't do it!

AdvantagesBody Styling and Pedigree

DisadvantagesOverdeveloped, Underpowered and Unreliable

"I had bought a BMW 116 ES in June of this year and this car regardless of it's good looks and pedigree has been nothing short of a dissapointing, frustrating and hugely inconvenient experience. The car has intermittent problems with starting and will cut out when idleing which has done since it was brand new, this is reported to be an issue with the Engine Management System. The system has been designed to promote better environmental and fuel ..." Read review

BMW 116i

AdvantagesStylish, comfortable and very reliable, an excellent drive

DisadvantagesAnnoying un correctable indicators, excellent customer service

"After having previously had a Chrysler voyager, I had reservations about the space and power that would be present in the new 1 series. It turns out that these reservations were unfounded, and I have no regrets about making the switch. I found that the styling is the most aggressive of any of the competing hatchbacks and offers something bold and imposing with it's long wheelbase. Its looks are impressive, but the drive and ride are certainly no ..." Read review

review of BMW 116

AdvantagesRear wheel Drive

DisadvantagesPrice and appearence

"With BMW's long standing history of producing quality cars, expectations where high for the 1 series even before I laid eyes on the car. My first impressions on the car were good; I was pleasantly surprised with the appearance of the car even if it did look a bit girly at first. When it came to the drive, the car came into its own, with the 1.6L version providing ample power and control. The drive was pleasant and the rear wheel drive puts ..." Read review

Quick review of BMW 116i

"This is a pretty nice car its great for family it has a lot of space if you want to go in vacantion with your friends or children.If you have the money this is a verry good car it can get to a pretty big speed but that's isn;t the only thing cars are made for.So overall on a scale of 1-10 i would give it a 8.5 because this isn't a car made for dinamic drivers its a more casual family car
