I have the 2007 120i e87 auto. issue i've had blown bulbs. its like every few months front bulbs would blow whether it was the parkers or the h7 bulbs but one at the time, That was annoying!
oil would be burning - seems a common problem. later found out i have a leak. No puddles but that means you get to put in new oil every month :)
Horn is now NOT working??? no fuses blown, took the front bumper off all connected. Brought $10 ebay horn wired them in and it works. Took it to BMW quoted $500 to repair!!!
I now have a baby, so it very tig...ht for us. Bugaboo Pram just fits and baby seat, the only luggage space i have is the front seats (wife sits with the bub at the back). This car is really for couples, handles great and firm so you dont feel like your in a boat. love the auto lock and remote open and close window features and the sunroof. Feels solid and it is a status car. Car is now a write off upgrading to family friendly vehicle.
Ok for city living
We have had this car for 3 years now and don't really like it, but it does the job. You feel all the bumps in the road with this car. It's a bit pokey (the Hyundai which looks like it is much more roomier). Every time some red warning light is flashing in the car that is another $1000-$2000 we got to pay to get it fixed!! Not cheap. We appreciate the car much more when we can squeeze into a tight car spot!
Small, strong car (in accidents), easy to park
Hard suspension, expensive servicing
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.

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 ?
