Things didn’t get off to a great start with the 1 Series.
Im very disappointed/ said Jess. ‘I was really hoping that the BMW would be good to drive and comfortable, but there are just so many things wrong with it.
The off-set driving position is really terrible; I couldn’t get comfortable at all, and it wasn’t made any easier by the unintuitive seat controls. Why do I have to lift a lever and jump up to get the seat to raise? Other cars have an easy-to-use seat adjustment system, so why not BMW?
‘Getting into reverse gear is also unnecessarily hard. You need an arm like Popeye’s to push the gearlever all the way to the left before you can get it to engage.’
It wasn’t all bad news for the BMW, though. There is one redeeming feature said.
The leather upholstery on the test car smells nice.’
