Waiting delivery of my 116ed

Hi there,

New to the forum and BMW and just took the plunge ordering a 116ed. Thanks very much to all the contributors on this excellent forum which went a long way to help me decide on the 116d/116ed choice and vehicle options. My budget wasn't massive and in the end I went for a standard black 116ed with:
- sport steering wheel
- full black panel display
- driver comfort pack (cruise/PDC etc)
- auto lights / wipers

I drove an ed at North Oxford BMW who were quite helpful. I was astonished at how quickly the 1.6 picks up with good, useable power in every gear. As a comparison I found it quicker than an A6 2.0tdi avant I borrowed from a friend to drive to the garage. I found the handling to be pin sharp and over a 20 mile drive we averaged 61mpg. The interior quality was superb.

Really looking forward to my BMW experience and contributing to this forum.

Just taken delivery of my new 116ed and wow what a quality machine! Well built, refined, quiet and it has exceeded my expectations. After 450 miles I'm still on my first tank and averaging 60.8mpg (OBC reading). Good performance and the I drive system is just tremendous. Wish I had gone for the headed seats now summers gone!!!

Glad to hear you like it. I ordered my 116ED without the possibility to testdrive the engine, so I'm curious to experience the difference with an 118D.

Were were due to get our SE (Same wheels as ED) on week 40, this slipped to week 44 and then week 52.
Is now back on week 48 (End November), dealer says it's all down to the wheel shortage.

Order placed 13th August.

Cheers

Please post some pics.

My alpine white F21 ED is arriving this week... can't wait any longer!

Haven't tried the 1.6, but all the reviews point to a very nice all rounder.
