  3. New 1-Series - Thoughts

    General BMW Discussions
    Seems to be getting a right bashing online about the styling, switch to FWD, lack of 6-pot, no more 3 door etc. Are you with the :thumbsup crowd or the :eek crowd? I must admit the M135i in particular is a shadow of its former self. Thoughts?

  9. Cermaic Brakes - your thoughts?

    General BMW Discussions
    You would think the benefits of them lasting longer than the standard ones might tempt you to go for the option, then you come across cars with failing discs at 17000 miles. And at such a low mileage failure you would think you would be covered by warranty, but apparantly not. Further photos...
