Infact I'll pay 18000 Quids and get the Cooper S Works with almost 200 BHP. Cooper S BBR has 275 BHP, but dont know much about it, so will stick to .. no.. not the Italian Job, the BMW approved JOB!

But I have had a Beemer b4, and I was pretty happy with it, and as they say, own a Beemer once, u'll own it forever. May change my mind after seeing it in flesh. (Probably the only Banger.. oops, I mean Bangle, that I havent seen after the new 3)

Well i think from a family practicality point of view the 4 door 1 series is a sure bet. To beef up a BMW engine is also not a prob if performance is a concern coz their suspensions are amazing already.
If you single then maybe the Mini.

Yes. The 1 competes with the Merc A and the Audi A2. The M1 [no not the M1 Supercar. I wonder what they'll call the M 1-series] will have a 2.4L , 4 pot, 250bhp engine. Hot Hatch .

Hey, any idea whats the M X5 oficially called?? I dont think its called a M-X5 [Mazda MX5].

Thanx for ur prompt as always reply
And abt the M X5, Well they do not have an M version of the X5 unlike ML55AMG, But they do have a version above 4.4 which is 4.6 but no M versions. I have the pricelists if u wanna take a look and can read a bit of german lol

Well there is an LM version of the X-5 (it has a v12) made in the supervision of the M Division. I am sure its just a prototype, coz not heard about it officially yet.

But I think the one your talking about the M-X5 is BMW Miata..
LOL!
