Which used BMW 1 Series hatchback should I buy?
Unless you cover huge mileages, the regular 118i petrol should suit you just fine. It can be a touch thrummy at idle, but things smooth out once up to speed.
Sport is a good compromise if you want some luxuries with a softer ride, but we'd suggest plumping for the M Sport because this adds front seat heating, leather seats and power folding mirrors. It also gets you firmer suspension that improves handling while also keeping the ride pliant enough over bigger bumps.
