Which used BMW M140i hatchback should I buy?

Specification

There is only the standard version of the M140i, and the Shadow Edition. We wouldn’t go out of our way to find a Shadow Edition, but if you do and it’s the same sort of price as a standard M140i why not if it has more kit? 

The only thing we would stand firm on is finding a five-door model, for that little bit of extra practicality. 

Engine

Since there's only one engine, we'll focus on the gearbox here. The manual is nice if prefer to swap gears yourself, but the eight-speed automatic gives the M140i the dual characters of being smooth and refined when you want to cruise, and providing savagely fast changes when you want to play. 

Our favourite BMW M140i: five-door auto
