Bring the 120i, make a 128i and bring the m135i that would be an excellent golf fighter. But as usual we will get an X2 with a fwd platform instead...

Also added a pic of where I thought BMW got their concepts.

Personally I like the new lights, don't like the new front bumper and don't like the rear.
Nice comparison. What a difference!

Looks fantastic!

The taillights make the back end look wider and lower.

Very nice, I do agree that this would sell well in the US.

Looks like the next-gen X1 takes some of its styling cues from the F2X 1er, if so it's going to be a great looking X1, an improvement over the current generation.

They claim no market for hatchbacks States side or small car in general ... I feel they are right somehow, for example look at sales number for X1 between Europe and States

It's not a mistake. You only get the new bigger knob if you get the professional drive. It doesn't come with Business nav or non-nav models. Only professional nav. We only get professional in the US or the non-nav iDrive, which does indeed have the smaller knob.

.....what possible opinion could you have had that would have led to a ban?

Personally I love the look of this thing. If they had it here in the states I would get one for track purposes FOOORRRR SURRRREEEEE. Do you hear me BMW?

They said I was banned because I had nothing but negative things to say about the design. Nothing offensive to anyone or anyone's personal car. A lot of comments get deleted around here just because the mods don't have the same views.

It is a good looking car, but I think they took a bit too much look from the X series of vehicles.
It looks a bit baby X1 now.
I would have preferred more influence from the 2er myself
