Advice for buyers

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

Check the paperwork to make sure the car you’re interested in has been regularly serviced, and have a good look around the body for knocks and scratches. Likewise, check the wheels, which are easy to kerb, particularly on M Sport models.

Also, make sure the door handles return to the correct position when you release them – if they stick out you will need to replace both the handle and the catch to fix the problem.
