I reckon the body shape looks anything but 'sporty'. Yeah, it's one hell of a 'sleeper': comatose! No amount of M badges or skirting is going to redeem it in this aspect. Also note rear tail-pipes and placement: why not push them further apart and create the impression of greater width from the rear? Reminds me of the E46 M3 tails. The front of the 1 series should have broken tradition from the new look being applied to the 3 series, what works for the latter based on demographics, I don't feel represents a more youthful, energetic character which should be inherent in the 1 series. It looks like a tourer, half awake. A basking shark, not a tiger shark!
