BMW 1-Series Coupe 125i M Sport 2d (2011/61) - Owner Review

The 1 series coupe is not the most practical car in the world, but it has an ok size boot, with fold down rear seats, so I am sometimes amazed how much actually fits in.

BMW 1-Series Coupe 125i M Sport 2d (2011/61)

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
A lot of drivers on the road will often have some choice words or BMW drivers, but I love the car and I think it is sporty, stylish, but with a quieter and more sophisticated edge than for example a Golf GTi or similar hot hatch.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Everyone loves the car, but some say it should have a fifth seat option.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, again and again, the only thing stopping me is the new 2 series coming quite soon.

What are you likely to buy next?
I would either buy same model, or maybe the new M135i.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchised

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£20,000

When did you buy the car?
July 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
I did a lot of investigation before purchasing the car, I knew what spec and car I wanted and searched around for a long time before settling on a car.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
The age, versus mileage, versus what it would cost to keep the car and then how much it would cost to buy a newer model was coming a head.

What was the dealer like?
The dealer was very helpful and even though the dealer was 200miles away from myself the delivered the car to my door.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
The car is amazing to drive, just about the right balance between sporty and comfort for my liking. For some maybe a bit too sporty but since it is relatively powerful, I think it is about right.

What's it like to park?
Parking is a breeze, short car with good all round visibility. It is also fitted with front and back parking assistant so no problems in that area.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing has gone wrong, the car was in mint condition and is now up for its first service.

What's most practical about your car?
The 1 series coupe is not the most practical car in the world, but it has an ok size boot, with fold down rear seats, so I am sometimes amazed how much actually fits in.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The built in handsfree is very good and could not live without the heated seats.
