Not had a proper read yet but Auto Express has a review of the above this week. The 1er wins! They didn't like the A class very much!!

Worth a read if anyone is loitering in the Tesco mag section!

Opposite of what Car thought then. But then Car tested an A3 S-Line and AMG Sport against a 125i in dowdy Urban spec. And then complained the 1er was ugly. Which it is, monstrously so in Urban spec! An MSport would have been fairer and better-looking.

Picked up a copy today.... the 125i got a really good review which is especially pleasing seeing I will be the proud owner of one on Monday :D

I'll scan the mag review in at work next week and post it on here in case anyone is interested.

What a car...... only a couple of days into my ownership and I'm thrilled with it. Knocks the socks of my old mk6 gti.

Thanks for putting up the mag extract. Anyone else notice the Merc was loaded with nearly 11k worth of extra's?!
I thought the Beemer had pushed the boat out in terms of options but that's incredible...
