What interior spec did your tester have? I was in one at the BMW SA dealership but that one was pretty optioned up with leather and the upgraded "Sport" interior trim with the red accent line. Even the "urban" line model had upgrades, so perhaps the 116i, being the bottom of the lineup, might have been a more basic trim? I do know that with the 1er, the standard trim and materials can feel pretty cheap.

I do miss the old-fashioned solid detent feel of the controls and buttons- this seems to be eroding away with each new iteration of vehicles. The climate control and radio buttons feel mushy when pressed, and the cruise control (if so equipped) roller is the same. But not everyone is OCD with details like me I guess......

I'm still bent on moving overseas, of course
