I'm not a fan as I can't unsee marble countertop when I look at it but I like that they testing the waters on the 1-Series rather than say the next M3.

Yikes... they've ripped the colour straight from Hyundai's i30N and the grilles make it look like it has Esther Rantzen's goofy ass teeth!

Criticism aside, I love the new calliper design, I wonder if the rotors are any larger than the F generation m performance options??

Interior is to die for, how long until someone attempts to fit them to another model?? 😂

FWD?
It used to be one good affordable BMW for the enthusiast. And they killed it...
Better go with Audi; at least there is some RWD in there...

And that grill... BMW, are you really that blind? REALLY THAT BLIND?

I'm really trying but I'm struggling to like this.

That carbon effect is terrible.

Maybe it will be a grower on me and be look better in the flesh but I can't see it just now.

The FWD buisness doesn't bother me if its a great car to drive.

It looks like that car has the Seaside Blue colour (700 Euros, in Norway at least). Though I'm not sure it's that or the Storm bay Metallic (1200 Euros), as shown in this video.

The growing grilles seem not working well with these wide-angle close-up shots... The front looks hideous

Make no mistake, I love BMW - I've owned enough of them! Fortunately, I'm patient so will wait until they get back on track, which will hopefully only be a model generation away
That's what I hoped would happen when it came to steering and overall driving dynamics.

It clearly didn't pan out. If I were you I'd just give up hope on BMW at this point instead of holding out hope.

As a F20 1 series owner, I can’t comprehend how they’ve got it so wrong with the new one.

Truly one of the most bland and generic hatch shapes I’ve ever seen. Terrible grilles and that side profile could literally be any euro or Korean hatch

Looks more like a shrunken toyota minivan from the side... but agree that is boring silhouette that no amount carbon will make appealing.


BMW is really killing it with these new designs.. and by it I mean future sales.

BMW still markets it as x drive and calls the transmission the 8 speed steptronic though it is the unit rom the mini.

From a great hot hatch (RWD M140i 6 cyl.) they downgraded to such a low level, it's almost impossible to understand the development team 🤔
