BMW have published pictures of its new One Series today. The little ugly
duckling of the family officially breaks cover for the first time. Prices
for the all-new 1-Series will be announced later in the Spring.

Not iDrive!!!!!nooooooooooo :banghead:
conclusion: :guns: Chris Bangle.
I think that the front end looks good but...............the rear end looks like a golf I heard that it will be pretty cheap for a bmw. But it doest seem to stay true to bmw's roots. (sports car)
??? BMW's roots are NOT sports cars. :tomato:
I like the look of that...I think it's about time BMW made a car to rival cars like the Vauxhall (Opel) Astra and Ford Focus....and SJ's right, BMW may have made a few Sportier cars in recent times but I wouldn't really say that's where their roots lie! oh..and didn't Chris Bangle resign?
not sure about that...where did you hear it? because if it's true then it will truly be a day to rejoice. :laughing:
I think I read it, along with a review of the new 5 Series in 'Auto Express' magazine some time ago..I could be wrong though, It wouldn't be the first time a motoring magazine has got it wrong :banghead: . And I agree, it would certainly be Fosters all round if old Mr.Bangle has left BMW's design in more 'skillfull' hands lol
I don't like 1Series at all. There are many other middle sized cars thar
are more beautiful than this one.
ps: edited to correct grammar
sorry their roots are airplanes but some of the first cars that they made where for the race track
Ummm, not really. BMW's first car production car was the Dixi in 1928. It
had a whopping 18 hp and a top speed of around 50 mph. As you can see from
the picture it's not exactly a hot rod.
From there, their next production car was the 3/20 of 1932. With a huge increase in power to 20 hp it was the first car designed entirely in house by BMW.
We have to go all the way to 1936 to find a car worthy of the race track. That would be the 328 which is considered to be the most successful racing car of the thirties.
So, as you can see it took BMW eight years to go from starting to produce cars to building a car deserving of the moniker "sports car".
I recently had another looksy at the 1-Series and the more I do so, the more I cant stand it...infact, now I hate it.. :banghead:
I think it's alright looking, but it's hard to believe it's even BMW.
chris bunghole needs to be shot, stabbed, poisoned, eviscerated, run over, squished, and smote by god. and then i'ma kill him.
Yessh... well I like it... you all get all the "cool" Euro cars... we here need some... by the by... they are right about the roots... it aint sports cars... :thumbs: :2cents:
Well, very very slow for a BMW. doesnt really look the part. will it damage
has any one seen the city rover btw its horid.
whoa, i heard bout the 6 series but not this. ANd its butt ugly :sleep:
*Thinks you may have watched Top Gear*
Well yeah, but i got some literature though the post last monday fron MG rover, cuz one of my crinkles used to work for Austin. It looked butt ugly in that but, i was impresed it had a 1.4. after top gear i think a good stereo would be adviseable. but i think i would by the panda instad. ive got a cinquecento for running around in, well its got no clutch at the precise second but you get the idea.
I like the styling of the new 6....
i dunno man, i think bmw's new 6 and 7 series styling in general is :sleep: . Driving experience and feel is prolly unrivaled, but the designs are getting ugly. I much prefer the exterior styling of the 3 and 5 series, the lesser of two evils imo.
I agree, although the 'toned down' version of the 7-Series is alot friendlier on the eye :thumbs:
Umm the TR6 is happening all over again. That was the last time the german pen sliped and it looked like the had sawn the end off the car.
Yes... the toned down 7 is much better... I like the styling on the new 5-Series, and the old 3-Series styling... very nice stuff... I also liked the old 5-Series.... good stuff... :thumbs: :2cents:
I think the new 1 Serie is a 180 Turn of the BMW Company. I hope they will
not go even smaller.
But did you know. It'll be not sold in the US.
Ich denke die 1 Serie ist eine 180 Grad drehungvon BMW. Ich hoffe sie werden es nicht noch kleiner versuchen. Wusstet ihr eigentlich das er nicht in den USA verkauft wird?
You wouldnt fit an american in it:p
I think he would know about a German Car Company since he is Deuch (German...)....(did I spell that right... o well...)
that was my point! (deutch)
Deutsch = German :)
Ya... I knew that...
I think the i series looks cool, not sure how it'll drive, and yeah, it
does look a little like the golf, and the front does look cool.
And yea, BMW started with aeroplanes. . . hench the BMW symbol. . it's the propellers of the plane. . (the blue and white..)
*Cough* Introduce yourself! *Cough*
no...the people we mandate an introduction from are people who's first post is a plea for help. one can simply blend into conversation without an intro.
The steering wheel and cluster are reminiscent of the 03 Tiburon.

EDIT: Probably 20 other cars too
Ok... but that looks like alot of other things too...
I've been thinking yet again..(geez I must stop with that thinking lark!) and came to the conclusion that the 1-Series is just a slower 3-Series compact :ohcrap:
I think it looks pretty good for its market segment. I'd much rather take
it than, say, a Civic, but then again the price difference renders it an
apples/oranges discussion. :)
Any idea on the performance specs?
From what I can see, the 1-series is horribly overpriced, so it competes
with the horribly overpriced Audi A3, and the similar horribly overpriced
Fortunately, there are enough idiots out there with more money than taste to buy these things AND keep the residuals up. The 1.6 1-Series is nearly 16 grand, and doesn't even come with aircon or alloys!
You could stick a BMW badge on a bag of sick, and someone would want one.
I was wondering, are Mercedes and Audi both planning on selling the A-series and A3 in America?
Car looks good! Lose the iDrive, tho. Good design!
I know the A3 is coming here in a little while... as to the A-Series: I have no idea...
