Terrible

Shocking value, poorly put together. Service costs are high - $160 for windscreen wiper blades as an example. Dealers don't care as they are more interested in the top end of town. Buy an AUDI or the like.
The concept of a BMW in a hatch. Bluetooth, etc.
Overpriced with poor resale value. The reliability is shocking. For the first 6 months BMW had the car for longer than I did - windscreen leaks, window issues, road noise.

Had 2005 model for over a year, no problems. The servicing I have had has not been near as expensive as I expected (though I didn't go to a BMW dealership). Not very powerful in automatic but is more than adequate for your every day driving. Nice and quiet on the highway.
Nice, quiet and refined. Excellent handling.
Ride is a little firm on some crappy roads but that is a trade off with the good handling.

Excellent. Have had mine for six months now, very reliable, great fuel consumption, looks great, has a great ride. Got it through broker for $5k less than caryards so shop around to get a good deal. BMW for entry-level price and low kms is difficult to find, the BMW 1 series offers this. Fun to drive!
Full leather interior, electric sunroof, great turning circle, acceleration, looks
Windscreen breaks if you let the windscreen wiper drop onto the screen, 2nd cup holder covered by arm rest

A fantastic small car with just the right amount of bells and whistles. Overall I've had no problems with it after 5000km and I could be happier with my investment.
Pleasure to drive, good fuel economy, great turning circle
Minor body creaks when panels are heating and cooling down

Tires

published

The tire size of the back and front are different. They are run flat tires and no spare is required. Due to the soft compound used you require new tires every 20000 km. One set $1600. Not cheap.
Reliable and safe. Good design.
Cost of service and repair.

Hi my 2005 120i with 140k on clock has started to blow blue smoke on acceleration once car is warm. Car has been regularly serviced and does not seem to be using oil. Any ideas?

Sorry Dee, I'm not an expert but if it's blowing smoke it usually Indicates some cylinder wear but my understanding it is usually associated with oil usage as well...have a mechanic look at it before it gets worse.

We have a 120i 2009 m sport (purchased new). The drivers side seat heater has stopped working. I pulled out seat and dismantled, but the pad looks fine and buzzes out (back and seat) on an ohm meter. Replaced, but led's turn on then go off after about 6 or 7 seconds. Swapped connector block from passenger side (which works), but same issue. Checked and only #3 and 10 fuses are in the fuse box. According to the fuse chart the others, (45/46 & 68) are missing and I have never taken them out. Would just 3 and 10 be enough to power up both seats? or should I put in relevant fuses to locations indicated on fuse chart?
