Here we have a car that is one of my all time favourites - The BMW 1 series combines all the usual attributes of "The ultimate driving machine" in a compact and practical package. This December 2006 car is a sought after 120 Diesel in M-Sport specification. It's a smart looking, and powerful 5 door which combines the looks and performance of a hot-hatchback with 50 mpg fuel economy. The powerful, yet frugal 2 litre diesel engine is mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox which has a smooth and rewarding change. Our 1 series is the perfect BMW for a time when everyone is feeling the pinch from increasing fuel prices as it has a combined fuel consumption of 49 mpg. Like all BMW's it is well built, comfortable and practical. Finished in metallic silver, this is one of the smartest 1 series we have ever seen with bright, clean bodywork and a smart 1/2 leather interior complete with aluminium embellishment trim. It is worth noting that this car is a facelifted model with an improved interior design over earlier cars - We do have a 2005 1 Series also on sale (Check out my other items!) - If you compare the 2 cars you will see the subtle but effective improvements which BMW made to create the car that you see here today - Both are great cars but this revised M-Sport model is well worth the extra outlay - particularly as it is packing an extra 40 bhp from its 2 litre diesel powerplant!
M-Sport versions of this car are highly sought after so with a warranted low mileage and a full service history this is a very desirable car. This car has several features to ensure it stands out from a regular 1 series including the smart 17" alloy wheels and lower, sports suspension which give it a more purposeful stance. The front bumper has a more aggressive shape than the regular 1 series and it houses sporty front fog lights. Inside you have 1/2 leather sports seats which offer greater comfort and support than the regular car and aluminium dashboard trim which looks sporty and brightens the whole interior. As well as being more sporting, this M-Sport model also exudes luxury feel with dual climate controlled air conditioning, a front centre armrest and a full electric pack. The steering wheel is a small sporty 3 spoke item trimmed in leather - It gives the 1 series an extremely tactile feel. There is a 6 speed manual gearbox with a fast, positive shift and well chosen ratios which are ideal for exploiting this cars super mid-range grunt whilst also enabling relaxed high speed cruising.
BMW market themselves as "THE ULTIMATE DRIVING MACHINE". With that in mind, it came as no surprise that the 1 series is the best drive in its class. Whilst the 120d may be of similar size to a VW Golf, it is, rear-wheel drive with near perfect 50/50 weight distribution. A fine chassis combined with sharp and responsive steering make this one of the finest drives or any 5 door, family hatch. BMW's superb driving position ensures you will always feel comfortable behind the wheel and the car offers excellent support and comfort. Through twists and turns the 1 series is guaranteed to raise a smile whilst out on the open road, it soaks up the miles with ease and offers effortless high speed motorway cruising. BMW are in my opinion one of the finest car makers in the world. The 1 Series shows their dedication to building "The ultimate driving machine" with near perfect weight distribution and an elongated wheel base created by having those front wheels pushed right forward and the engine set back in the chassis so that its weight is behind the front wheels - thus eliminating the under-steer you experience in rival offerings. Whilst this might seem like a load of technical waffle but the benefits become crystal clear the moment you put the 1 series through a series of challenging corners. Yes, there are other cars that offer similar performance and prestige in a compact package, and there are plenty of cars offering 50 mpg economy, but there is no other car I know of in this price range that combination in such a fun-to-drive package, as convincingly as a 1 series diesel.
This car looks simply stunning as you can see in the photos and I for one have fallen in love with her during a brief 70 mile test drive. You can bid with confidence secure in the knowledge that we would not want anything less than 100% customer satisfaction (see feedback for evidence of this). Viewing is recommended to fully appreciate what a fine example this is. Hopefully the supersize photos will do the car some justice but in all honesty it really does need to be seen and driven to be fully appreciated...
They don't label themselves "The ultimate driving machine" for nothing!! BMW are most famous for being a superb drivers car. The 1 series may be a compact 5 door, but is in every way a true BMW - A true drivers car. You sit in supportive, yet comfortable 1/2 leather seats with a sporty 3 spoke steering wheel, trimmed in leather for a sporting, tactile feel. Our 1 series has push button start, and even before you press the start button you get a sense of power and control. The driving position on a 1-series has always been one of my favourites with virtually no wheel arch intrusion meaning you are able to sit dead straight with no off-set to the pedals. This uncompromised driving position is typical of BMW's constant drive for perfection in every detail of their cars.
Press the "start" button and the 2 litre turbo-diesel power-plant settles to a smooth, quiet idle. The 120d is will cruise along with an eerie silence and all the comfort of a large petrol engine and has superb performance. The 0-60 mph sprint takes just 7.6 seconds with a top speed of 137 mph (not tested). All BMWs handle the twists and turns with ease, but this is even more evident in M-Sport derivatives such as this where the lower, sports suspension and wider alloy wheels make this car an absolute hoot to drive. The turn in is sharp and responsive with the taut chassis being aided by cornering brake control and BMW's DTC stability and traction control along with responsive ABS brakes. Of course you can all the electronic aids off and further exploit the limits of BMW's fine chassis - although this is not recommended on the public road. With perfect weight distribution, rear wheel drive and an advanced traction control system to keep the power in check, the 120d is great fun but also superbly safe and predictable.
The beauty of a diesel 1 series is that whilst it is an impressive high performance hatch, it is also a very easy car to live with and extremely cheap to run. These 120d models are superb all-rounders. Despite the sporty looks and impressive level of performance on offer this car still nudges 50mpg economy and road tax will cost just £175 a year. All the controls are well laid out and the visibility is excellent. The superb driving position ensures drivers of all shapes and sizes will be comfortable behind the wheel of the compact 1 series. Our 120d has covered just 63k from new so, and shows very little sign of any wear and drives like new. The power delivery is still instantaneous, the turn in is still sharp and the change on the 6 speed manual gearbox is fast and precise. You would be hard pushed to find a better example. I personally enjoyed every minute behind the wheel, and I'm confident you will too! You are more than welcome to call me and arrange a test drive prior to bidding. My number is 07932-873646 and the BMW is fully insured for demonstration purposes...

Our BMW is a genuine 2 owner car which was part exchanged into a local main dealers with a full service history (which I will list below). It has obviously been a well cared for car and is guaranteed to turn heads thanks to its fantastic looks and condition. The exterior is dent free and is free from nasty scratches. Inside the 1/2 leather interior trim is similarly well presented being free from stains, rips and odours. The 17" alloy wheels are in excellent condition and are shod with good tyres all-round. All the cars electric goodies work perfectly including the climate controlled air conditioning which blows ice cold. Whilst it is a used car, and will have minor imperfections in keeping with its age and mileage, I very much doubt you will find a nicer example than this.
This is a genuine 2 owner car with the last, local owner having had the car since early 2008. I have all the original documentation for this car including the full V5, the original manuals and the original service book. The car's service history is as follows;
