I really wish we got the F20/F21 in Canada. I think it would actually do very well here. If its priced competitively with the VW Golf it would do extremely well. I would love to add either an F20 or F21 128 xdrive with the 8 speed auto to my stable. I think it would make an excellent highway cruiser and would get easily 40+ mpg highway.
BMW should bring it over as an experiment to see how the NA market would react to it to expand it to the US. But since the Canadian market is smaller its less of a gamble. Hopefully once the free trade agreement between Canada and the EU is in place we'll start to see them because import taxes will be negligible.
