hey its not bad..i kind of like it even though i am not turned on by hatchbacks..i think this would be a real big seller..ie. if they can price it right around the world..

its a million mile ahead of the c coupe..(hate that)..but for people who like hatchbacks, this is great..i would have to say work well done..but then again i have not seen the back just yet ??

thanx

Doesn't have the BMW class in it. Hopeless design. Seems like BMW is running out of ideas.

BTW how's the performance?

Its not all that bad looking but it seems all the Beemers look the same now just like Mercedes Benz . Like Shantanu said its the performance that should be seen and then engine options they are offering

Cheers

Holy Cow, Just when I thought that Chris Bangle could not make the headlight any uglier..he comes back and proves me wrong. I dont care if this 1 series does a 1/4 mile under 10 seconds...I'd never be caught dead in it.

The spy pics made a good find though, revv
