My F21 116 EDE

Hi all,

I took delivery last week of a new F21, so I thought I'd share some pictures with you.

It's a saphire black BMW with the 116 EDE engine. I'm really pleased with how it looks and how it drives. I've driven around 300 km's, and it's a nice combination between driving (sport mode) and saving fuel on longer trips (eco pro mode).

It's not a line, as I had a limited budget (it's a company car) but I've chosen for the joy packet, a radio pro, the chrome line exterior and a sport steer.

This is the first one Ive seen with the chrome frame around the side windows. I had no idea it was even an option!!!

Makes the car really stand out and look more luxury than other hatchbacks. Nice choice of color.

It's unfortunately only an option for the 3 doors (F21) and not for the 5 doors (F20)

(which till today still boggles my mind .. why not for the F20??)

Nice car mate, what are your first thoughts on the engine ?? And is it a petrol or diesel version ?

Isn't the F20 a hatchback?

THanks, didnt know the chrome window-frame was only for the F21.

God damn how much sh*t you learn by making the mistake not to study every little detail before finally placing an order for your car. My 118d F20 was my first brand new car. Wont be making the mistake of not knowin EVERYTHING about every option next time I order a brand new car.

Ozolz: I got the same feeling. Though I'm very pleased with the way my configuration turned out, I did had a lot of doubts while the car was already ordered with options I discovered when browsing different forums.

DRIVER1975: It's the 116 Efficient Dynamics diesel version. I've driven just over 900 km's by now, and went by the gas station for the first time. According to the computer, I had a average fuel consumption of 5.6 liters /100 km.

It's ok, but I've driven very eco friendly, a lot of highways to try it out, and if the brochure says it can get to 4l/100km, then 5.6 with the way I drove was just a bit disappointing. I find driving in Eco Pro mode a bit sluggish. It's perfectly fine when your driving to work in traffic, but when there isn't so much traffic (middle of the day, evenings and nights) the sport mode is a lot more fun and powerful! And that rises the fuel consumption quite a bit.

But this may sound like I'm a bit negative, while I'm actually really pleased with the way it drives, the smooth accelerations in comfort and sport mode, and how it's really quiet! It feels very premium to drive!

Nice car! You've got I good deal out there. But even if you have already picked out the vehicle you need for a dealership, you can go to the site on your phone and review costs. It is the very best way to make sure you are always paying less than every person else. Have a look at Momentum BMW Houston now!
