I have a BMW 116i and it is old 1,5 years now, passed 14 000 kilometers.
From the start it has anoying grumbling sound from the engine on low
RPM (till 3000) . Untill 3000 car shakes and has a sound like diesel.
And the car loses power on low RPM. After 3000 it works without problems
when it gets power. I know it is 1600 cc 115 HP but I think that it is
weak. Dealer said 3 times that they are waiting answer from the german
factory about that problem but I still didn't receive the answer. What
should I do? They say that they changed some electrical cables but
nothing changed with the sound of engine. On low RPM it works louder
than diesel! I bought gasoline engine because I didn't want noise and it
works awful on low RPM. Car spends 11 liters/100 kilometers . I am in
Owners of 116i, does anyone has problem like this? What do you think
that is the problem?
