In Fact it's not a DCT.. if there are eight speed it could only be a tiptronic.

I'm normally diplomatic, but this car being unavailable in the USA makes my blood boil.

Listen, BMW N.A. morons: This would sell in the United States.

You could not sell the E36 318ti because it sucked... Basing all decisions about selling a small BMW hatchback based upon on that meaningless smudge of history is purely ridiculous.

Dont forget there will be an M135 xDrive wich for sure will be faster than both of them to 60mph!

MotorReport.com.au state "Developed specifically for the M Performance family - one step up from M Sport, one down from true M status - the M135i enters as the first petrol model in the new line."

How is this one step up from the M-Sport? I see cosmetic mods + revised suspension - no different then but with a new name?

Hi, first time poster here. I'm looking to order the 3 door 118d m sport in mineral grey as soon as possible.

Any best guesses as to when ordering will be possible?

Thanks

120d (?)

When will it be the official public presentation for F21?

Does anyone understand why 120d will be delayed to November???

Is that a marketing decision...? And why only 120d?

BMW... great decisions...!

fugly, the problem with the 1er is the side profile cos it looks a 3er touring scaled down. It just looks lazy.

Also, those headlights are terrible seen the new model on the road a few times and no matter how many times I see it I cant believe how fugly it is.

It's a polarising design. However, often those that were 'unimpressed' on seeing photos, warm to it once they see in the metal. For everyone else they'll continue buying the offend-no-one vw golf and Audi A3.

If they made it pretty, it would bite into the 3's sales. Look at some of the design work coming out of BMW's studios lately. They know what they're doing.

I'm not so sure, people in the market for this type of car will probably just buy a Mazda or VW or something else.

I think the 125d engine is what the (allegedly headed for the US) 330d will be based off of. can't wait for that car.

F21 with xdrive? If xdrive makes it to Canada on the 1 series coupe... That might be a huge seller. Here in Montreal, xdrive is a big plus. I got a e92 xdrive coupe..... Might have gotten a 135 if it had xdrive.

The very reason the 1M did not have DCT.

I'm sure it was to much for the M3

I'd had bought one otherwise.
