Ah, another Bimmer not available in the USA.

What is the fuel economy? And how do you find the back seats/cargo capacity?

The fuel economy it's about 7litres/100kilometers.

The back seats/cargo capacity is not for tall people, more than 1,80metres. I usually drive alone or both.

Haven't noticed that 3 door also has frameless doors, nice. Color is fine and M-sport is always the way to go. However I remember 118i would have better fuel economy on the highway atleast... Your 7l/100km suggests it's not too much city driving.

Did you buy the car new or used?

I bought the car new.

About fuel economy you are on true, my father's 318i e90 143hp have 6l/100kms. Both I and my father only railway driving.

With 116 if you want enjoy it you must loose fuel economy.

Nice car - but there is no M-Version of the 1 Series available, so I am wondering why you put the M-Sticker on the back (let me mention: it's only the 116i).

Nice car! I'm surprised that you only get 7l/100km (~33MPG). I would have thought you would get better gas efficiency than that.

If you drive on "grandmother mode" you can get 5.5-6l/100km but it is very boring...

I
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?
