It's a nice car. It has a good handling and the motor is good. It isn't very quick (150hp and 8.5 seconds for a 0-60mph).

Here is a shot:

8.5 isnt bad for a non-sports car? 130i is probably faster.

Yeah! The 130I is a way faster! It has 265hp and it runs @ 6 seconds for a 0-60mph. The speed limit is limited at 155mph. Here in Europa, the 1 serie is considered like a good car, but too much expensive.

Well its not imported beacause he has Mexican plates and registration. If you someone there you can do the same. His family has residence in Monterey, MX.

Thanks for the pic bmwz3coupe. I like the 120d which has very good numbers for performance and economy:

Car Manufacturer BMW
Car Model 120d Sport

Body Type 5-Door Hatchback
Colour Quartz Blue Metallic

Performance [ Manufacturers Figures ]

0 - 62 mph 7.9 Seconds
Top Speed 137 mph

Transmission 6-Speed Manual

Fuel Type Diesel

Economy [ Manufacturers Figures ]

Urban 36.7 mpg
Extra Urban 61.4 mpg
Combined 49.6 mpg

from
http://www.carpages.co.uk/bmw/1-seri...1-22-03-05.asp

And has a size closer to my E30

Yeah! The 120d has nice accelerations. I have trying a 116I (bad....), a 118d with 140hp (damn, you can do drifts whitout problem because of the high torque...) and a 120d (very nice. Accelerations were like my previous E39 528I). I hope I will try a 130I one day!
