BMW 1 Series Owner Car Reviews

2013 BMW 1 16i Sportline Review

The F20 1 Series 116i M Sport manual was my second petrol turbo, previously I owned the Astra J 1.4 turbo. The Astra felt faster but was much heavier on fuel, I averaged 9.4l/100km with it and I averaged 7.9l/100kms with the Bimmer. The Bimmer is very comfortable for a car with a sport suspension and 18 inch rims...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The ultimate drivers hatchback search has been on for some years. A couple cars ago I had a 2008 STi, but had a job that needed 25,000kms of Sydney driving, and whilst a nice gearbox and not too bad ride, eventually went for a diesel auto Wrangler for a few years, then onto a BMW 130i that was also P plate compliant, so ticked the box of a capable track car and is still in the family with my son driving it...

2012 BMW 1 Series Review

Individuality. It's what makes us different, and it's also what can divide opinion. And in 2011 when BMW launched its first redesign of the original 1 Series it certainly created a divide. The bold, athletic, sculpted face of the redesigned car was a far cry from the pretty curvaceous design of the 2004 original...

2010 BMW 1 Series Review

The 120i is BMW's answer to practicality, comfort, luxury and class packed into a package that remains affordable, despite the BMW badge. This particular example is the 4 cylinder 2.0L petrol variant and comes equipped with the 6 speed automatic transmission. Upon first glance, the 120i is unmistakably BMW...

2013 BMW 1 Series Review

Review: BMW F20 M135i $68,400 In the past, the term ‘hot hatch' used to refer to small, light, front-wheel-drive hatchbacks with go kart handling and a motor that felt like it was from a coffee grinder. Safety was non-existent, comfort was relative, and parking was a breeze...

2014 BMW 1 M135i Review

The formula is simple, it's one that has been proven time and time again. Take one relatively light car, place a relatively big engine in it and make sure the power exits through the rear wheels. Add some thoughtful concern for 50:50 weight distribution and you have what can be described as a fun drive, it's physics after all, you're working with the laws and not trying to fight them...

2014 BMW 116i Sportline Review

I purchased my 2014 BMW 116i in late 2014 and overall have been very happy with my decision. I spent about a month looking for a vehicle to replace my 2011 Audi A3 and after many vehicles being considered, I ended up buying the 1 Series. Looked at SP25 Astina, A3, A-Class and more, and it turned out the BMW was the cheapest, and the best to drive in the end...

2008 BMW 1 35i Sport Review

Purchased this car used. I went from a Mkv Golf R32.. Then to an Eos, loved the feeling of a convertible but wasn't all that wrapped with having to check and top up the oil all the time in the 2.0 turbo engine the Eos had. So I then soon after did a swap for the 135i...

2011 BMW 1 Series 35i Sport Review

I bought this car 2nd hand 2 months ago and it has been the best car I have ever owned both its day to day driving and its incredible performance. the most immediately noticeable feature of the car is its fantastic engine. it has amazing power and acceleration in any gear at any revs, very smooth but rapid when combined with the 7 speed DCT auto gearbox that I have...

2011 BMW 1 Series 16i Urban Review

I bought the BMW 116i for $37,500 drive away in September 2012. It was a demonstrator, advertised on CarSales.com as having 1500km on it, but when I rang the dealer I was told it only had 140km on it. I’m not sure why they advertise it with more kms, but I was happy with the low mileage...

2009 BMW 1 25i Review

I have recently sold my 125i, and to date it has been the best car I have owned. When I bought it new in 2009 I was looking for an affordable, small rear-wheel drive car. I didn't want a convertible, which ruled out the MX-5, so I was left with the option of either the 125i or a Mazda RX-8...
