1 series coupe

Just about to leave to go and collect my sisters 1 series coupe M Sport - she is so excited, bless her.

Pictures will be up in a couple of hours.

Can't wait to have a go in it myself to be honest!!!

Sorry, I just re-read my OP and it wasn't very clear - I was taking her to pick it up - she wanted me (aka mr fussy) to look over it for her and be there with her incase the dealer tried to fob her off with anything.

Fortunately it was a very positive experience and it all went swimmingly. I've got some good shots, although I went back to the office afterwards and stupidly left my camera there, so pics will be up in the am.

She had to shoot straight off, so I didn't get a chance to have a go, but I've spoken to her since collection and in her words "It goes like a rocket and handles like a go kart"

She's promised me a go at the weekend, which I'm really looking forward to.

Ok, here are a few shots I got yesterday.
I'll be meeting up with her at some point over the weekend, so I'll get some better shots (including interior ones) as well as have a proper go in it.











and finally, Murketts M3 demo - yum yum

Is a 120d mate - She would have liked to have gone for more power (as well as gone nuts with the options) but she's in the middle of starting her own company at the moment, so has had to keep the finances under tight control.

She only managed to get the M Sport (she was looking at an ES) because I nailed the dealer to the wall. Her finance payments on the M Sport ended up being 3 a month cheaper than he started off on an ES!

She'll probably keep this for three years and then change up for something with more HP and a few more boxes ticked.

With that said, I'm expecting even the 120d to keep pace with my 325i in-gear (although if I swap cogs she'll have her work cut our catching me!)

Nice sheps, I will be interested in a review 1 coupe vs 3 coupe if you get a good run in the car. Looks good the 1'ster coupe is growing on me all the time.

I've allways liked the one series coupe right from the off. I've only driven the 123d M Sport and it was extremley quiet and civilised with no turbo lag at all. Great little package.
