The projector style LED's looks 100 times better than the reflector style, and more 'premium'.

Sell out.

I loved the Squircles.

Liked the original much better.

Was very organic and original but no longer.

Now for the BAD news
I am informed that the official BMW release will be in March.
In Europe, it will start being available from early April.
For Australia, they are not expected them to arrive until September

Will the ordered cars be available then, or will it not be possible to configure cars before that month?

I can't see any website configurators for the LCI yet.

I hear Alfa is going to starting to make a new lineup of RWD cars
With Alfa going back to making RWD cars my loyalty to BMW is about to be stretched!

Its a shame that the unique selling point for the 1 series is going to be taken away If the 2 series goes FWD that will be the final straw!

The info I have is that the update version will only be on orders taken after the launch date. Existing model is in wind up. There would be a longer wait for the new model.

Ahh ALFA
All the passion, no reliability
Perhaps if a German car company bought ALFA then I might be interested

Anyone notice in the 3rd video he picks up his buddy like a guys night out. Drives fast in a parking garage and cuts to his buddy drinking a clear liquid in a container that's not typically bottled water?
Guys night out = hard booze + wreckless driving!
Haha those crazy euros!

Yes, that's what we do in Europe. We also play cards on the roof when waiting for the lights to go green in junctions.

I thought to myself "Wow! They really seemed to nail my everyday life here... This surely must be the perfect car for my needs!"

it is funny that they are using an m-sport f20 with halogen headlights to compare to led headlights.

New led headlights are of course amazing, however the huge hyundai i30 like area near fog lights is unnecessary. I wish they hadn't touched the front bumper, and also the taillights are too big for a hatchback imho.

anyways, should I be worried that "Estoril Blue" is now exclusive to M135i?
will there ever be estoril blue 1.18i, or 1.20i ?

Colours are the same. Estoril Blue will be available in 120i M-Sport.

Personally, I think that Alpine White looks best in this F20 LCI.

Saw the F20 12xd (don't remember if it's a 120 or 125d) in the closed room at the Brussels Auto Salon.

Alpine white, full option, M-sport, Ferric Grey wheels, alcantara interior.
It looks so much better in the flesh. The rear is much less intrusive or unfitting as would seem in the pictures.
The inside middle console panel change is noticable for someone who drives the current F2x but it's not a big change.

I really liked it.

And what ovekvam & AusF20 are talking about: I know some people who have ordered 1-series that got the choice to have a pre-LCI or an LCI. It can be ordered since end of last year and first orders will probably be delivered somewhere end of March/beginning of April. The first fabrication slots are usually reserved for showroom cars/stock cars for the dealers.
