    hi all

    this is my first bm... got a 123d over a month now, and i hate it!! im actually planning to sell it...:(
    been driving over 10 year and this is my first BMW, i read review and listen what other pplz have to say and i agree with most... so i went out and got myself a 123d coupe... i like it at first, but now that i have it.... im starting to dislike it... my neighbor has a honda civic type r and its park right next to mind... and it just look so dull, dont get me wrong, the engine is amazing, but i dont get that feelin that its a great or even good car as a whole.

    i dont join these forum but i though i give it a try and see what other 1series owner think... i hope u guys can change my mind of selling it.

    I'm not sure why if someone else likes or dislikes their car will have any bearing on your taste in cars.

    On an enthusiasts forum I think the POV will be very one-sided.

    What in particular do you dislike about the car, apart from the styling?

    yes i know very silly indeed!! but its a long story.

    i got it more for the diesel engine, i needed something that would give me a better mpg, i did look at other option... but nothing came close....

    Yeah think I agree with Tungtvann, if you think its bland looking why buy it? Perhaps research and test drive a few more cars next time eh!

    The 1 series coupe is a lovely looking car... don't think dull, think refined. It's a clever design, whereas the Honda is just mutton dressed as lamb. Understated class is a sign of maturity in my book.

    Have you owned the Honda? Your neighbour just wishes he had your car, probably.

    Maybe it's a diesel thing and you should have got a petrol but how can you not love RWD?

    im not saying its a ugly car.... but when its park right outside next to my neighbor car, it just doest feel special, i know it all a matter of taste, but just driving it doesnt make me feel like i have a good car, when i test drove it, it feel so different, i was sold on it.... man i wish i could ask for a refund!

    Mod it then! There are loads of rims which would make a world of difference to the car's look!
