Yep, can't wait till some of these new, efficient diesels and turbo fours come to the US. I get a chance to drive one every once in awhile when I pass through Germany. Read the August article in Bimmer about the 320d Efficient Dynamics. Thats proof you can have a very cool car that's fun and gets awesome mileage. Great gas mileage doesn't equal having to drive a Prius or Insight or some other fugly vehicle that sounds like a hairdryer.

The Challenger looks sick! However, that Retro looking interior has to go! It's like I was back inside my Grandpa's car. They should've made a modern style interior. But the exterior looks perfect. The best looking muscle car.

Pros:
Bad ass looking exterior
HP

New 1 series looks decent, the engine is advance but the whole iDrive control and restrictive UI using Twitter just seems such a dated design. It really isn't that hard to offer speech to text or as an option to replace the entire console control with ipad/ipad2 as an option.

To me this car shows something significant about BMW design language these days. At first, it's dislike, then it's "meh" and now gradually...I'm liking it! Just enough edge in the design to put off people at the beginning, but enough familiarity that its grows on me, and looking at the comments, a lot of other people too! And no car will look good to all people! Can't wait to see this in the flesh in Taiwan.

Since our dealer presentation and training for the F20 in Frankfurt we are being told that it certainly grows on you and that it looks much better in the flesh than on photographs. What they do like is the fact that it is original and is not simply a Golf copy which you cannot say for many other euro-hatches.
Is there already a facelift on the company's todo list ?

I'm sure it looks much better with M Sport Packet...
Interior is a big plus than any other car in this segment

I'm happy to hear this won't be landing on our shores in Canada!

Haha exactly! I can't believe this design got approved by BMW to make it to production!
