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...

2008 BMW 135i SPORT Review

Black fully loaded 135i M-Sport convertible with black leather. The brilliantly smooth and refined turbo straight 6 produces a commendable 400Nm available from just 1300rpm and it keeps pulling to redline. It rides quite firm, but isn't ever uncomfortable. The steering is well weighted and turn in is direct and precise...
