BMW 1-series ??

Guys i just came across this and thought i'd share it with you. its the new BMW 1-series. (thats what i read any way)

Bav, whats your view? you're the BMW man! (i think)

looks beautiful as most BMW's! not so sure about the rear end though, looks odd to me. i don't think its supposed to be a car. it's meant to be like that Audi 4 by 4 i think

yeah we kinda did this one a while back, its supsoed to be a small car to compete with small focus sort of size, I think it looks like a cross breed between thr front end of a 3 series and the rear of a fiat stilo

The best german-made car in terms of exterior design is still the 911 imo. Everthing else is highly questionable.

It's a 1 series...not meant for doing 160mph down the autobahn...although I'm sure it could handle the speed better than most rice.

It's a city car. (European Style)

Yeah the 911 is the best body styling especially eh 911GT2. That thing looks a like a GOLF. Eww its ugly, BMW should disown that thing, they allreay got that nasty looking new 5 lets not add to the collection of ugly children one is enough.

The last beamer in Bav's signature is the bets bodystyling for BMW's. Always has been always will be.

And at the tender age of 15 yrs, what would you know about the "lines" of the car and what BMW was looking to offer?

If its just your opinion that its ugly, that's fine...no problem there. But to say, "all looks wrong" is a bit different.

I'm going to assume it was just your opinion and that being that you think it's ugly.

Not a BMW master, but I like the mid-late 90's BMW body styling. Nothing has a more sporty/luxrious appeal than an all black 328is with 19" Chrome Mille Miglia Evo 5 Rims and a chrome trim. Greatest exterior looking BMW. Also works with the 2 door 5 series but I like the I-6 in the 3.
