Feel like I'm the only guy that likes the front facia - it's awesome. Bring it here.

So, do you think the 116i is not a good option? Im thinking about it and the 118i, sometimes I think the first one is enough for me. But reading messages like yours, Im in doubt. The 116i, reaches 100Km/h in 8,5 secs...What I think is a really good mark, if you are not Fernando Alonso. Tell me your impressions please. Thank you!!
Hi there I have a 116i sport it's perfect for me!! I do many motorway trips and its easily does 110 in the fast lane but will also beat many cars off the lights. Also being an old man at times it's a perfect town and country road car power is perfect for me I love it. But go with what you thinks best.

Yes. Yes they are. Takes a while getting used to the way the beam flicks around on twisty roads at night because the tilt action on them is a bit distracting at first.

I do miss having front fog lights though. Feels like a poor compromise for cooling. Having said that I think it has opened up a chance for an aftermarket styling firm to remodel the front and include a pair of sealed lamps as a bonus. If engine bay temp was really that much of an issue they should have vented the bonnet or scooped it somehow. Side vents would have added to the shark-like profile for example.

As it is the front end looks a bit fugly, almost warthog-ish.

The angel eyes look with the angry frown eyebrows is actually quite novel although it could become a bit of a dated look. I suppose with the furious hornets nest noise coming from the engine/turbo the angry look is appropriate.

Recently bought my M135i in full black spec. Got it for a song: 32k with almost every toy apart from the HK sound upgrade. Supposedly 'ex-demo' with 1,500 miles on it, still running it in. I expect to hammer it for about 25,000 miles in a year.

Enough left in the pot to fund the Hartge tune
