WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: BMW 1 SERIES (2011 ON)

This version of the 1 Series came along just after BMW's problems with timing-chain stretch on its 1.6-litre engine. So, these cars shouldn't exhibit this trait.

That said, BMW messed around with anything up to four different camchain-tensioner designs to solve the problem, so we'd still be having a close listen for a rattling noise on start-up.

Check the vacuum pump has been sufficiently lubricated, which supplies the assistance to the car's braking. If not, the pump could fail, leaving the car with no brake-booster. The brakes would still work, but the pedal would need an awfully big push from the driver to pull things up quickly in an emergency.

The other thing to check with the little BMW is that all the electrical accessories and do-dads work properly. That includes the sunroof and the cruise control. And make sure the air-conditioner blows icy cold.
