I know this probably isn't the correct forum. I was having some work done by a BMW specialist who said to me that in the new 1 series BMW are now putting in Peugeot made engines in them is this true ???   i did remember hearing that the mini had a Peugeot engine

They've been putting the jointly developed "Prince" (Peugeot-BMW) engines in  Minis since about 2007.  They also used them in the F20 116i and 118i from 2011 - 2015.  And in the F30 316i and 320iED from 2012 - 2015.  But AFAIK they stopped building them in 2016.

The BMW Diesels are all they designed and built by BMW?   The wife wants to get a new 1 series and I was quite surprised and thought maybe the specialist was making it up. From your information it appears it seems to be mainly petrol engines

All current BMW engines are internally developed. It was the 4 cylinder petrols as mentioned by Johnny up to 2016 in the versions of cars mentioned above. These were N series engines jointly developed by BMW/Peugeot. All diesels are and have been BMW developments. If you are buying a new 1 Series it will have one of the latest generation B series engines.

Thanks for the information, seems like such a strange combination of companies. I suppose its a bit like Laura Ashley and IKEA teaming up to make furniture. Kinda puts you off considering the number of gremlins my mums Peugeot 406 has back when i was a teenager

When the nuclear war happens, all that will be left are cockroaches and PSA Diesel engines.

 

They are bullet proof engines. It's just the rest of the car that doesn't work!

The first new Mini had Chrysler petrol engines!

 

And rubbish they were too - the most disappointing aspect of our old 2003 Mini One

Weren't the first gen Mini engines not a joint venture between Chrysler and that other well known quality car manufacturer, Rover? This being Rover who are well known for the robustness of the cylinder head gasket in their K Series engines......
