I'm really interested in the F20 116i, but reading things like this makes me really unsure.. It's not a performance car. It's a reasonably nippy town car with RWD, it's perfect for the enthusiast that wants a BMW but also wants economy. Why are they so fragile? BMW's used to be made to be driven hard, without having engine components cracking and breaking. What's the use of a quick RWD car if you can't drive it semi-aggressively?

If I'd buy a 116i I'd want to stage tune it, but reading forums and experiences, I think I'll pass because the engine will probably break somehow.
