Every time I see a 1-series, I can't help but think "That is a woman's car." Sort of like the previous-gen SLK. It just has an effeminate aura.

Who agrees? If you disagree, suck it.

It's not feminine, but it's ugly as sin. The droopy sash line, the upright windscreen and nose, bulbous greenhouse; 2nd worst looking BMW ever.

I just cant get over how small they are in person yet try to pull off the big-boy styling.

I wont pass judgement until I take 1 for a spin.

Well, it's a woman's car / effeminate if you are driving one. However, the 1 Series M Coupe is a sick car.

Don't even like Japanese cars, but I'd rather have an Evo if I were buying $40K of ugly and fun.

The EVO would be awesome in the NE snowshit right about now.

I was thinking more like this, not some lightly dusted parking lot.

if it doesnt have the 3.0 turbo then yes, it is effeminate... especially if it's an automatic, 128 cabrio.

I thought it was fun to drive. But I have a large dick, so I don't care what people think about my car.

It´s not effeminate, at least not in Europe, but it´s ugly... I don´t think many people would buy it if it didn´t have the BMW badge...
