What should I look for in a used BMW 1 Series coupe?

The BMW 1 Series Coupe is proving durable, with few complaints from owners.

However, cabin trim problems and rattles can be an issue, with dealers sometimes struggling to fix them. A high rate of tyre wear can also frustrate, with rear tyres sometimes lasting for fewer than 15,000 miles.

The Bluetooth system can also fail, and MP3 integration can play up, too.

When looking at ex-fleet and lease vehicles, make sure the service history is present and that any work has been carried out on time.
