“So good, we've now had 2!”

Written on: 24/10/2015 by Dickey132 (1 review written)

We purchased a new 118d 3dr Sport in 2013 as my wife's mile muncher as she covers around 15k pa. The 1st car stayed with us for 23 months and 32k, and we were offered a superb deal on the LCI (facelift) model before it was even launched. We took it and haven't regretted it since! Both cars were identical apart from the minor nips and tucks to the LCI car, and the evolution from the N47 to B47 engine. The new engine is by far the superior lump, and they have 'tidied up' the clutch action and… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/10/2009

My initial thoughts are very positive. What a beautifully engineered vehicle! It has a fabulous engine - smooth, powerful and refined. It's easy to drive and a joy to get behind the wheel.
Yes - it isn't very roomy in the back and it does have a hard ride but the advantages of driving a quality cat far outweigh any negatives of that nature.

Written on: 10/04/2009 by edengelert (4 reviews written)

I needed an economical car to commute (110 mile round trip), comfortable, good looking and fun to drive were also considerations. I bought a 3-Door 118D SE Efficient Dynamic (refresh) model in March 08 and covered 20k miles in that time.
Everyone who drives it or is driven in it is so impressed. Everything is built well, nicely designed and the features include cruise, auto lights/wipers, aircon & sport pack.
Best economy on a tank of fuel is 61mpg, the worst (when having fun) is 49mpg. Road Tax… Read Full Review

Written on: 08/12/2007

BMW 1 Series 118d is a nice little car shame about the fuel consumption. Full of improvements i.e steering, autostart and stop in traffic holdups. Fuel consumption is very poor on overall consumption giving just 46.5 mpg, manufacturers figures 60mpg… Read Full Review
