Owned since 2012
My husband bought this BMW around 2012. As a Diesel it is wonderfully suitable for long journeys. In early 2020, my husband called me at night. The car stopped in the middle of the street, in the middle of nowhere and didn't start anymore. Typical BMW 1 Series disease: timing chain. Result: engine damage. The car got a younger exchange engine with a new timing chain without any diseases and since then it has been driving us everywhere again.
