New owner for BMW 118d

Car Mechanics (UK) - - Editorial -

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!
