Besides, the 114i has a lot of tuning potential. I'm guessing that many of the owners will chip tune the car and not tell anyone. That way they can have the power of a 118i for 2/3rds of the cost.
As above, but in Finland we don't have tax based on horsepower, just co2. And even then the 114 is 3000 euros cheaper than 116 and a whole 7000 euros cheaper than 118. I don't understand the huge difference between 14 and 16 in price because the emissions are identical. This is why I'm going for a 14...
