New owner for BMW 118d
Our recently finished six-part feature on the BMW 118d had a few readers asking if it was coming up for sale. On a first-come, first-served basis, Daniel Hogan made contact with me just after the July issue went on sale.
I swapped the 118d with our new Peugeot 207 CC project car in mid-july and drove the 1-Series from Sheffield back home to the south coast. It really did go well, with 70mph in sixth gear producing just 2000rpm. You really wouldn’t know it had covered nearly 213,000 miles.
I found a few imperfections in the cabin, so called Daniel to get him to view the 1-Series. He was delighted and took it away two days later (see above). Daniel was hoping to drive it to France on August 6. I do hope the 118d behaved itself!
