Our 1 day old Liquid Blue 118d Sport

Hi have had many 3 series BMs, but we applied a bit of method to our choice on this one series. Wanted economy but with a lively drive through the twisty roads around here. Never could get on with the 1 series looks in the hatch version and even with the new version I think the designers couldn't decide the direction of shapes, but much like my Cayenne ignore the style comments and concentrate on the car from the drivers perspective (includes the Cayenne aswell) this new car is as big on interior space as my 3 series and as cosseting from the drivers position and then the drive well I think its as sharp and balanced as my recently departed Cayman. Performance is fine and the 61mpg average shown this weekend with a tight engine and varied driving as we test out all the performance options switch is where we want to be and the sport seats are more comfortable than my Cayman seats. Now our choice of colour was on a limb as we had not scene any photos except on a 3 series cab in a US dealer site. So if I can upload this may be the first in the flesh uk Liquid Blue 1 series sport photo for the forum.

Enjoy we certainly are
