BMW 116i VS VolksWagen Golf
 
Hellloz....I'm thinking of a new ride :)

For the time being I'm outside US, finishing my medical studies and preparing USMLE so my budget is not that high and the taxes here are high so don't talk about cars I can't buy :popcorn:

My ride now is a Peugeot 206 Hatchback, it's more than 3 years old or so...and here's some photos for it cause Peugeot is not selling cars right now in US in case u don't know the 206 :)

I can pay right now between 35,000 to 40,000$ , don't start comparing to US prices cause the taxes here are something else...

so after searching :D I can get the BMW 116i or the VolksWagen Golf in 2 completly diffrent packages..

http://img152.imageshack.us/img152/5...ium116ixk5.jpg

BMW 116i comes with 1.6 Petrol Engine 122 Hp - FR - 6 Speed Manual Transmission with mid-options package:
ABS - 16 inch wheels - 6 Airbags - Sunroof - Network Cloth Seats - Radio Business CD with 6 CD changer - Xenon Headlights - Front Lights Washers - Bluetooth System - PDC - Multifunctions Sport Steering Wheel - Auto Diming 4 Mirros - Smokers System.

the new 2008 116i will cost me about 41000$ including the registration papers and stuff...it's on the maximum margin!

VolksWagen Golf is the other choice (it's Rabbit I think in US)..it comes with also 1.6 Petrol Engine - 112 Hp - FF - 6 Speed Tiptronic Transmition but with the full options package:
ABS - ESR - EBD - 17 inch wheels - 10 Airbags - Sunroof - Leather Heated Seats - Electric Movment for the Driver Seat - Radio/CD - Xenon Headlights - Heated Mirrors with Auto Diming - Bluetooth System - Parking and Rain Sensors - Adjustable Speed System.

The Golf will cost me about 37800$ in tottal....


so what do u think? getting the BMW 118i or 120i will be impossbile 4 me now (with the Tiptronic gearbox) the 118i will cost me more than 48000$ for example....:rofl:

there are some other options If I want to pay less...like the Mitubishi Lancer EX 2008 and the New Honda Civic...

to be honest I prefer the BMW, but the Golf offers some good options too :thumbup:


so? :confused:

and a 118d? the performance is much better just as the fuel consumption. But offcourse...it s a diesel.

I have two problems with diesel..

1. The diesel here really bad, I mean about the quality of it...I think it's working with Big Truck Engines and old ones...but with the small new rides..It causes alot of problems...

2. The BMW retailer here isn't importing diesel BMWs, maybe I can order one anyway I can check, but I don't think I will order.... :)

BMW by all means. Can't go wrong. VW can't beat the BMW handling. And 1-series just had the facelift.

yeah, I think BMW 1 Series is better...that's why I'm thinking of the it!

Really liked it, and you said exactly what I want to hear!

LeMans I wanna ask you a question...

Did you try the 1 Series Hatchback?! :D

Brad_p 10-24-2007 02:48 PM

but take my advice... don t order the 116, you will regret it.

i have also a 120d, and drove with a 116i... didn t like the performance

so u mean to get the Golf? or just pass to Civic or Lancer?

Is the 116i performace that bad? cause it's on Manual Gear and have a very good 1600cc engine compared to other 1.6 ones.

Sure 118i, 120i & 130i are more than great but I can't afford them now!

I believe he means to get something better than 116 like the 120 or 130.
Not driven the 116 but been in a 130 and liked it.

yeah...but as I told u:

118i: more than 48,000$
130i: will reach 60,000$ and more!

so it's impossible...!

so it's really 116i or not....maybe a Japanese Car or just staying with my 206 for now!
