118d Sport plus coupe

Hello guys,

I went and put the deposit down on a new Alpine white 118d sport plus edition.

I have added the following options.

Heated seats
xenons
bmw business loudspeaker system
sun protection glass
Carbon fibre rear spoiler.

This is my first BMW and I am thoroughly looking forward to getting it!

Welcome to 1Addicts,

You're going to love the car. I believe the 118 responds very nicely to a tuning box too!

Thanks for the reply and welcome!

I never actually test drove the car before i put down the deposit. A look round the car and a brief sit down in one was enough for me to seal the deal.

Can anybody tell me what the 118d performs like as standard ? Speed does not really bother me as the car looks the business IMO. Am i likely to be expecting more ? Currently i drive a 2011 Fiesta Zetec S.

Hi Johnson,

You should be good for ~8.5 secs to 60 mph. With a diesel tuning box you'll be around 7 secs (so quite a step up). But if speed's not your thing then hey-ho.

My wife just sold a Fiesta 1.6 Titanium (Zetec S engine), so I have driven this for many years and they are good cars. The BMW is in a different league though IMHO. I used to own a 135i and loved that car. It was tuned to 400 BHP so I guess I must be a speed freak.

Anyway, enjoy the car.

Cheers,

Mad.

Thanks again for the reply!

I have no doubt in my mind the new BMW is a massive step up to the fiesta ( I wouldn't have made the switch if i thought any different ) But it is good to see your opinion having jumped out of a similar car to the one i am currently driving.

I have had the pleasure of riding shotgun in quite a few BMW's over the year's including a gorgeous alpine white E92 M3.

Cant wait to get the 1 series coupe, I am hoping it will be the first of many.

Any ideas how much a tuning box will set me back ? What does that do for the fuel consumption ?

Many Thanks,

Ben
