Are Bmw 1 series cheap to runWatch
You can arm yourself with some information by getting yourself some insurance quotes and researching how much it'll cost you at the pumps every 500 miles.
Servicing bills are likely to be higher than the typical hatchbacks on the basis that BMW parts are more expensive. That said, if you do your own servicing you can cut costs a little here.
On the other hand, because it's a BMW it'll likely hold it's value a little better against other options from, say, vauxhall or renault.
Beyond that, why not peruse autotrader and see if you are able to pick something up within budget?
Lastly, I was always taught if you want something badly enough you'll work hard until you get it.
Most people aren't aware of that.
I got £6000 for the car insurance is £1500 and running cost for one year.
It is not really a BMW...
For the money, I would get a Mini or Focus which are far superior to drive. Or an S2000, but insurance would kill you or you won't get insured at all as a first time buyer, lol!
Or better yet, you could get a nearly new Toyota Aygo with group 1 insurance for the money and they are a hoot to drive and mega reliable, good mpg and well built.
In all seriousness, they're more expensive to run than an equivalent sized hatchback, but if it's the car you want, then work out if you can afford it and go for it. There's nothing wrong with paying more for something to get what you want, rather than the cheapest option.
Anyway, if your asking whether a BMW 1 series is cheap to run then you're looking at the wrong car. Insurance probably isn't cheap, servicing and other maintenance costs again probably not cheap and fuel economy is only good if you go for the diesel options.
