Last rear-drive BMW M140i bows out for just £449 upfront

BMW 1 Series deals

As the new BMW 1 Series makes its debut, dealers will be looking to shift stock of the outgoing model. And that means some excellent deals.

The new car swaps a rear-wheel-drive platform for either front-wheel drive or xDrive all-wheel drive. That makes the distinctive outgoing car an even more tantalising prospect, especially for keen drivers.

Whether you’re in 118i territory, or after the M140i hot hatch, there’s likely a bargain for you. Starting with the hero car, you can get one for less than £500 down…

On BMW’s Select PCP program, we saw a deal for the M140i Shadow Edition, with the upgrade package paid for by BMW. It only requires a three-figure deposit – or, to be exact, one month’s payment of £449. There’s a deposit contribution from BMW of £7,510.

Admittedly, £449 a month for four years is still significant, but if you’re in the market to get something quick, and do so quickly, you can’t argue with that upfront cost.BMW 1 Series deals

Compare that to the also good-value 118i M-Sport Shadow Edition deal, upgrade again courtesy of BMW, that you pay a £4,849 deposit for.

BMW basically goes halves on the deposit, contributing another £4,726. And while that’s still adecent deal, you can’t get away from that M140i steal.

If you want a classic rear-wheel-drive 1er, though, you’d better act fast.
