abhishek's review on BMW 1 Series 118d Sport Line
Year of Manufacture : 2010 | Driven no. of Kms. : 20490
- Pros: posh looks, good drive
- Cons: poor visibility, less economical, no resale value
I have been driving the BMW 1 series for a couple of years now. I agree with both sooraj and anil. Though I wouldn’t say that I love the car completely, but the car does have some good qualities. The car is extremely good looking and can easily be called the perfect style statement for its owner. However, it is not easy to drive the BMW series 1. Handling the car is not an easy car, especially when it rains and the roads get slippery. Changing the tyres hasn’t helped me much. Adjusting the seats to improve the visibility took me a lot of time. But even then the visibility especially for the rear is poor. You will find the gear box quite stiff. But the drive is smooth and the acceleration is quite good. Also parking the car is difficult despite there being parking sensors. The resale value is not good. Hence buying such an expensive car is not really very sensible in the long run. The car has its own set of pros and cons. it depends on the individual whether to like it or not completely. For me, it’s an ok ok car. Not very bad but definitely not great.
