Ike the ///M on the back. It goes back to the days of E30 3 series BMWs. M wasn't only about the M3, it was also about the style, the suspension and sport interior features. There were M323i and M535i cars that didn't have much in the way of engine changes but did have body kits, stiffer suspensions and wheels. This little 116i has all the M bits of my M Sport 128i, so while it may be a little slower 0-60, it is still an M, and will handle around turns as well as many other cars, better in fact.
I wish the US had at least the 123i.
7l/100km, is about 34mpg?
