2007 BMW 1 Series 116i 1.6 petrol from Malta
Go for a bigger engine
Strange noises from left dashboard side.
The fabric on the pillars is coming up with the heat.
Well it's a 1.6, so don't expect a rocket. I just kicked its heart out to see what it could do, and it's fast, but would be better if it was a 2.0. Spin and burn the wheels by switching the traction button off.
Fuel consumption is high, probably because of the heavy bodywork.
Interior is a bit cramped, but once you get used to it, it's OK.
A/C works great in the summer heat. Would have expected better paintwork for the money at least. I'm keeping this one until I destroy the engine (trying); after that it's a 130 for sure.
Excellent handling on our narrow and winding roads. Rear tires; make sure to always check them.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
