BMW 125i 2015
Carsguide Contributing journalist Peter Anderson had this to say at the time: The BMW 125i can deliver some pretty decent thrills and with a lot more involvement than even the brilliant (and slightly cheaper) Golf GTI or the similarly-priced Audi S3 can manage. The Mercedes A250 4MATIC can't even get close on the fun front.You can read the full review here.
This is what Peter Anderson liked most about this particular version of the BMW 125i: Hugely improved design, Great driving experience, Overall value
The 2015 BMW 125i carries a braked towing capacity of up to 1200 Kg, but check to ensure this applies to the configuration you're considering.

BMW 125i Q&As
Check out real-world situations relating to the BMW 125i here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
Audi RS Q3 or BMW 135i, which is more fun?
That's a rather subjective question that's almost impossible to answer. It also depends on what you call fun. Both would be fun to drive, but if I were to make the choice purely on the driving experience I would choose the BMW.
Punctured tyre can't be repaired
Some run-flat tyres are marked that they can't be repaired, but that's not necessarily correct we've been told. Run-flats can be repaired providing the sidewall hasn't been damaged by being driven too far after the tyre deflated. There are tyre dealers other than Bridgestone dealers who have the equipment to remove run-flats from the rims and repair the tyres. Bridgestone have an equivalent conventional tyre to your run-flat and these can be fitted to your car.
Ask Smithy Xtra Aircon comparison
Generally it was always felt that the air-conditioning of European cars wasn’t up to the task for Australia; that was because there wasn’t the demand for powerful A/C in Europe where the climate is generally milder. But when the European carmakers began to move on to the world market and export their cars to places like America where the demand for good A/C is very high they have improved the performance of the A/C systems in their cars. The cars you say have had good air are cars that are typically built for the US market, those you say don’t have good performance are not. A/C systems soak up quite a bit of engine power in driving the compressor and that has a greater impact on smaller engines than big ones, and again the cars you are critical of have smaller engines, so they will also probably run smaller compressors.
