New BMW buyer

Hi all,

I am looking at buying my first BMW, and looking at the 1 series hatchback, M-Sport 118D (2010). My local BMW has a few available which I am planning to go look at in the next couple of days, and before I go I wanted to get a better idea of the car.

Can anyone advise on anything I should look out for?

Also I've seen a few on Autotrader that are a few years older but about 4k cheaper, so wondering if there were any upgrades made in 2010 models? Does anyone know on any differences between 2010 models, and pre-2010 models? If there is little or no difference then I may just buy from autotrader as I can save 4k, and I've seen a few on there in really good condition and low mileage.

Look forward to any advice anyone can offer

if you are going for a 118D, make sure its not a 122hp, but a 136/144hp one. much better engine, and it is the same one as the 116D, so they all get the same power when chipped
