Fantastic to rubbish
2013 116i sport .. have had the vehicle from new and found it to be brilliant on the road..economical, precise and powerful...absolutely loved the car..
At the 6 year mark it's turned to rubbish..low pressure fuel pump, high pressure fuel pump, battery, sensors and continuing electronic faults which are still persisting. Cost to repair so far $3000 with no end in site...had I taken it to bmw i would be up around $10000...I found an ex BMW tecnition who has been working through the faults and he tells me around the 5 to 6 year period or just out...
Purchased in February 2013 for $53,000.00.
Great handling, otherwise rubbish. Dont buy the hype about German Engineering...get a Toyota or Mazd
Great audio. Seriously even the professional package has superb sound.
Great seats. Front seats are very support, very comfortable and very adjustable. So you'll have no issues finding the right seating position.
Nice touches like holding down the lock button on the remote closes the windows remotely. Or on a hot day holding down the open button opens the windows and sunroof to get hot air out of the car before you get in.
If you like to really drive a car you'll appreciate the balance on the limit, directional stability and feedba...
Great N55 3 litre six in a bad chassis that creaks and moans, very patchy build quality, very un-cohesive to drive, DCT twin clutch is horrid, it's a very heavy and complex system and it clunked on downshifts, BMW have lost their way on this one, current products aren't much better.

Questions & Answers
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?
Sorry Rod, mine never had seat warmers and I not much on electrical
Does anyone know if the 56 plate bmw 1 series 2.0l msport is the N47 or M57 engine ?
