' BMW 116i ' Test Drive & Review - TheGetawayer




What do you think about this video?

Sea Edu: cool video

gustavo520: the roof is made of thatch i believe nice video and interesting island, i had read about its history with the wall..oh and i just bought the car, its great!

TheJoeMB: German cars are really well engineered but after you have one that's a few years old the reliability stories i hear are quite scary, Japanese cars are way more reliable especially in old age. There is very little that goes wrong, my friend's Golf MK 4 Gti has been very problematic. 

Darek Nowak: So the facelift 116i has 2.0litre bottom? right?

incorporateapps1: What's the color?

TheGetawayer: @TheAMGLover : I did my research on wikipedia and this video was recorded in 2010. Not sure about the specs in belgium, but thanks for sharing these informations with me !

hifispezialist: @TheGetawayer ok, danke für die schnelle antwort

WaSeeM: I like it better than the newer one

TheGetawayer: It's my video and I talk about what I want, lol

Damon Hussain: is this a 1.6 L ?

mynamehaschanged: I have a question for you, hope you can answer. I own a 2007 BMW 120i (bought it brand new in a BMW Agency), since new it has given me a lot of problems, but I love the way it drives. The fuel consumption is the worst (7 km/L=16.4 MPG=14.28 L/100km). This is my question, I am planning on changing it for a bigger car, What do you think about a 2013 BMW 3 series or a 2013 Audi A4? Do you think with an Audi A4 I could have less problems?

Jelle Van de Moortel: Thanks for the quick answer, I'm always doubting about what will be my next car. "3 series! Why not a 5? Or maybe a 1 series? The Mini Cooper is nice too! No, just buy a 3!! Or 1.."... I'm just crazy :s

Nightfly1957: great video

NEWYORKVISIT: Die Geräusche die man hört während du fährst, sind die vom Auto? Ich meine gehört zu haben, dass der 1er ziemlich klappert und "knattert". Danke dir schonmal

TheGetawayer: @TheSRalston : That must be an old brochure, buddy. Since March 2009 the 116i comes with the 2 liter engine that replaced the old and much more thirsty 1600cc that also had 122bph, just like the new engine but with less torque. Enginecode N43B20 for 116i, 118i and 120i, build since 2007 in the 118i and 120i

kattlikzm: is there a HUGE difference between the 116i (1,6?) and the 120i ? 2007 modell. Please reply

magikroom: Nice review, just getting one as my company car and yous is probably one of the best reviews out there...plus I liked you descriptions of the villages etc...by the way, I think the roofs on the village houses are called 'thatched'...made of straw! Great vid :)

turpioSE: probably in Germany domestic cars are well priced. But outside ridiculously expensive. Eg Toyota engines can outlast BMW, Merc, Audi etc I know people never had issues with Japanese cars whereas Euro models nothing but repairs especially oil & coolant leaks. I drove a new Toyota Yaris 1.3 litre and was amazed, you get heaps of gear even Sat Nav, 7 Airbags, climate control, voice control, ABS, ESC, TRC, EPS, cruise as standard for 20k. Plus 5 year warranty- BMW has 3 years.

kandoley: Good review. Watching it made me buy one.

kattlikzm: @TheGetawayer Thanks a lot! I'm going to buy a 2010 120i this month or something, looking forward to it! Can't wait for a new bmw ;)!

Legoklosse23: Do you have a good sight while driving?

WARRIORURIEL: hi i am going to buy my first car and here in my country (Peru) the A1 sportback is 28500 dollars or i could buy a used 2011 bmw 116 with M acesories (15000 kilometers) for 27000 dollars does the bmw worth it? i have drive the A1 and i love the feeling althought i have not drive many cars so what you think? should i go for the bmw or the audi?bmw or audi?

hifispezialist: was war das für ein baujahr??

petrus250: I'm buyng a car like this, 2009 model, white...:-D

Jelle Van de Moortel: How is legroom in the back?

TheGetawayer: @seen320 : Dankeschön ! Freue mich immer über solche deutschen Kommentare

RisingOverBars: you're suppose to talk about the car not the village.

TheGetawayer: @Nightfly1957 : Thanks ! Happy new year !

TheGetawayer: @hifispezialist : Ich hatte bei deutschen Videos bislang nie die Aufrufe und Kommentare wie bei englischen Videos. Zudem gab es aus Deutschland meist sehr hässliche Kommentare, was mir auch nicht gefallen hat...Aber ein deutsches Video habe ich als Versuch vor kurzem nochmal hochgeladen: Schau mal nach dem Video zum Porsche 911 Cabriolet, Fahrbericht und Test

TheGetawayer: Thanks for watching and thanks for your feedback !

carlitos1259: should I buy a used 116i 122bhp from 2008 with 33 000km for 13 000 Euros?

TheGetawayer: Thanks ! It was one of my first reviews and I never thought that over 70.000 people would watch it. Today ( two years later ) my language skills have imnproved and the videos are more informative. Greetings from germany, Guido aka TheGetawayer

TheGetawayer: @kattlikzm : It's a 2010. I also have a review of a 120d, that might be interesting for you

kattlikzm: @TheGetawayer What about fuel? and does the 116i get up fast to 100? And one more question! does ALL the 116i have 2,0 engines? or just some? Great review by the way! thanks a lot for the video and for the quick response on my questions!

TheGetawayer: @KohviKruus : Sure ! It's easy to drive and more fun than most compact cars, so why not ?

TheGetawayer: Very limited sadly. I think the VW Golf and Audi A3 offer more space

TheGetawayer: Hey there ! I think the A1 is a great first car and if you like driving it, you should go for it. I wouldn't recoomend a beginner a rearwheeldriven car like the 1 series, eventhough it is very easy to drive. I'd say Audi, but test drive the 1 series too and go from there. Greetings, Guido aka TheGetawayer

23overagain: Hey , nice review , and good reviews in general, i wanted to ask for your opinion, i want to buy a used 1 series from Deutschland, wich engine should i look for? 116i is a bit to lazy for me, should i go with a diesel or a petrol ? 118d or 118i?(like a sporty feeling) ( i drive about 13000 km per year ) Thanks !!

laikros: Dude you eyes telling me your secret weapon ,]

xboxersg: I didn't know Germany has got an island of her own! Did she forget to return it to the French 70 years ago? Nice review though. It's better than those lame ass "salesman" some reviewers are so fond of.

TheGetawayer: I have reviews of both cars the 2013 BMW 3 series and the 2013 Audi A4 here on my channel...It's hard to say if they will cause you less problems, but both have way better fuel economy than what you're getting from your car. It's always sad to here that people have issues with their cars. I only drive them for a few days, so I have no idea how long they last...I think the first generation of the 1 series wasn't that grea, but once they changed the engines, things got better, I hear...Greets

Pasii14: Wie viel kostet der BMW 116i circa?

FyahStarta: I'm getting mine in a couple of weeks and can't wait! Thanks for the vid!

TheGetawayer: @FyahStarta : Your welcome ! Have fun with it, it's a truely great car !

CreRay: You're right. I own a BMW 1 series, and let me tell you it's expensive, not roomy, uncomfortable for the type of car, relatively heavy to operate, and many will find it's design quirky. Yet still, I love it. As a drivers car it is unbeatable in its class. The steering, the gearbox, suspension, not other car "talks" to you this much. Most people won't appreciate that- a Toyota or a Honda is a better choice then.

TheGetawayer: Haha,well there are a few german islands, especially in this area and they've been german for way longer than 70 years :) Thanks for your comment !

Rosu Mihai: nice little car that almost "drives itself". the review is too boring. > I wonder who is interested in hearing about islands an houses in a car review? And navigation systems? Boooring!

TheGetawayer: Um Längen, besonders im Verbrauch

TheGetawayer: As long as the car has a proper service history and hasn't been in an accident, I think you won't go wrong with a used 1 series. They aren't known for having big technical issues and seem to be very reliable too Hope that helps ! Otherwise search the web and some forum to find out more, about what thing to look for when you are buying a used 1 series

footballbazzer: Great review, i am going to buy one tomorrow, your english is good, and you know how to do a top review, thanks

Holiday: We don\t make alot, but our group do get to travel frequently. Just this year we went to Bangkok to get pictures and their holiday schedules. We are still in a growing phrase so best we can aim for is break even. I think everyone have to overcome the same type of challenge when starting something new. Don\t give up!
