Hey Mammut, This is a supercar, great. tell how it is run and how the engine and gear box work, congratulations you must be one of the first to get 125i. Looking very pretty with m-sport and 18 "wheels. Stylish sports auto. Be fun to read what superspeed says.

Very interested in the report on how you find this model, particularly the way the 125i engine works in the 1-series. It is on my 'next car' shopping list.

Have you gone for the standard passive M-sport suspension, or the Adaptive M-sport suspension?

I'll see what I can do for you. But I don't have time to make more photos until next weekend. So you must have a little patience.

Sport seats feel very well. Like the ones in my old E87.
Canon EOS 5D Mark II + EF24-70 2.8L

First impression: Great! The previous E87 feels really old compared to my new car.
I have the passive M-Sport Suspension. I never felt the need for more comfort in my old E87.

Congratulations!

This is the first time I have really seen an M-Sport 1er without disguise in the outdoors or without a studio or bright lights of an Autoshow .
It really looks fantastic , better even.

M-Sport adds a really distinctive appearance to the 1er , but that is why I like the 1er. It can only be a 1er there is nothing visually to connect it the other BMW models. Unlike Audi's new A3 which uses the same front end as every other Audi. The sculpture on the body work is evident in your pictures and you can see those elements that give the car its individuality and sporting looks.

Enjoy.

I think BMW should definitely change their photographers!!!

These photos have much better quality then those on the 1er official catalogue!!!

Congrats!

Mammut,

Did you try a 116i or a 118i before buying your car ? If so, can you tell me if the gap between N13 and N20 engines is big. I mean, do you really feel the larger torque value when accelerating ? In my case, I have done a test on a 120d. France is the contry of diesel. I really don't like diesels...


Many thanks

No, sorry, i tried a F20 120d with sport automatic but no F20 116i or 118i.
I can only compare the new one with my old E87 116i and in this comparison the difference is huge.

Sweet. Love those rims with the M-perf. brakes. The bumper and diffuser look quite similar to the E87 M-sport (which I had, and loved).

When did you order yours? I ask because I ordered last September, and the M-sport wasn't available back then. So I went without it. But I only got mine delivered about a month ago - maybe I should have waited a month!

I think it was the second or third week of January when the new price list was released by BMW.

Nice job on the photos, too.
