The 1.2-liter 12-valve Volkswagen BME 1.2 HTP engine was produced from 2004 to 2007 and was installed on the most compact models of the German concern, such as Polo, Ibiza and Fabia. This power unit is essentially just an update to the more famous AZQ motor.

Disadvantages of the VW BME engine
- The weak point of the motor is the short-lived timing chain with a resource of 50,000 km.
- Due to a bad hydraulic tensioner, the chain may jump after parking in gear.
- Floating engine speeds are often caused by contamination of the throttle and crankcase ventilation.
- Fuel injectors and ignition coils have a rather modest resource.
- At high mileage, compression often drops here due to valve burnout.
