Never, ever buy one
This was over a 32 week period.
Power steering failed.
Clutch broke twice.
Airbag light permanently on due to faulty seat connector.
Fuel pump pressure low.
Gear selection cable failed.
Stutters on pull off in first.
Both front seats replaced twice due first to them collapsing and then to hopeless attempts to re-fit new ones.
Steering column replaced.
New battery box and fuse box covers.
Drivers door trim replaced.
Scratched centre console on delivery.
Broken heater - not connected on delivery.
Windscreen replaced 3 times due to poor fitment.
Drivers seat leaning to the left.
All backed up by lies and time wasting from BMW dealerships.
A great little car made pointless by dreadful build quality and BMW service centres that couldn't care less. I really wanted to like this car, but BMW will go to great lengths to make you hate it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
