    I thought the 1 series was just a hatchback. Have they done a coupe version just for the US market?

    Well, right now in Europe it's only a 5-door hatchback. The Coupe is coming out worldwide.

    Probably 3-5 grand below a comparable 3-series model.

    The side panels ruin it. I still prefer the e46 to the newer models.

    I can't help but compare this to the MB 190E, or the Baby Benz.

    190 (w201) became 220, 230K, and 240, 260, 280, 320, 350,
    c32, c36, c43, c55, c63 (!) followed.

    In the US, you cannot get anything smaller than a c300 now.

    Huh? What do you call the C230 and the C280?

    It has the sex appeal of a Hyundai Accent.


    and the Hyundai's interior

    Well, there is no accounting for taste (or lack thereof).

    taste is subjective but that is a large expanse of plastic on that dash.

    i have owned 5 bmw's from m3 to 745i sport. for my tastes, no better car. at $25 - $27 this looks to be great addition to the line.

    There's an article in the current Automobile mag which predicts a M1 with the E46 M3 3.2 liter engine and beefed up suspension. Sounds like a good recipe to me.
