Got a 116i as a courtesy car this morning with 3k miles on it. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif This car is awful, much worse than I imagined. Driving position is terrible. Steering is way too heavy, such a comparison to my S-line. The worse thing of all though is the gearbox, I've only driven the car a short time but when you change from 1st to 2nd it feels like changing from 4th to 1st at 30mph. I found it really hard to find a smooth change in the lower gears. Gear knob is a funny shape too. Only good thing I could say about it is it feels pretty solid, but that's about it. Horrible car.
