Had a 118i Sport as a loaner today. I was rather impressed! The gearbox is great at finding the power and makes the most of it. It felt more nippy than the 325 tbh. It had a bunch of extras like CIC nav which works great and makes my nav show it's age!
I dislike the look of them, the one I had was in Valencia Orange so I don't think that helped.
Apart from the looks, they would make for a great daily.
