    bmw 1 series

    had a shot of a 1 series today, it was the 1.6 one

    from the feeling i got from the acceleration i think my 1.6 sxi would rip it, i didnt get the chance to open it up cos my uncle was next to me and it was a car from his work but it didnt feel as quick as my astra

    probably quite a weighty car, personally i dont like the cheaper bmws - they dont seem worth their money. Probably nice and solid and comfy i would imagine tho.

    dont get me wrong, it was a really comfy car, a nice wee touch on the indicators, u just press up or down as usual, but the wee lever thing comes back down and the indicator stays on

    rather have more speed than comfort tho !!

    i saw a yellow one and have to say i quite like em. but i still think the owners still cannot drive properly. also, why have fancy indicators when owners dont use them

    Love the Diesel one, superb engine, and a very very nice chassis.

    Just needs the M or Hamann Treatment and jobs a good'un

    The 120d is a star buy. Very comfortable and rapid enough.

    Far too expensive though.

    Im sure it has german build quality etc but it looks awful, as does the new x3 - looks like a 1 series on stilts lol
