Why, is still a mystery to me...

Dig the new front fascia. Not the rear so much.

Jason Do you know what engine this M135i will feature?
It would seem weird to me if this car doesn't feature the new B58 engine. Just like the 340i and 440i are supposed to, later this year.

I don't know why they keep saying the M135i has more power than before, it's had 326HP for ages, in fact at one point they said it has 332hp, and those silver things just look silly at the front of the M135

I agree. There is a feeling that high end hatches will not sell well in the US, but the market seems to be changing.

I'm assuming the M135i will have the same engine as the 2015 M235i.

I doubt it would have the B58. It looks like BMW couldn't get the B48 ready for the 330 this year, so they may be cutting it close with the B58 being ready for the 340.

Also, the 440 isn't due out until next summer, and the LCI the summer after that.

Curious as to how the current 1 series LCI will coincide with the 1 series sedan release.

Yes, ACC is now available on the 1er. However, not on the M135i.

It goes on with the N55 for another year. The B58 would be planned for 2016 (MY2017), so it makes the switch at the same time as the 2er.

you had ONE JOB BMW

to give it the 2 series front

that's all, that's all you needed to do to make it perfect

and what did you do? i don't even know, but drugs and alcohol were involved, and not in a good way.

the rear is a huge step up, the front is a kinda unsteady side-step...

That looks great. Too bad we can't get it in the U.S.

They can't make the 1 look like the 2er. Otherwise they'd dilute the 2er if they had.

I cannot stand the new tail lights. To large... now it looks like a X1 not a 1er hatch.

On top of the back comments, the side profile is lukewarm for me. Front-end does look good, however.

It's funny, I no longer view these releases for what they are, but rather what they could be. Could anyone recommend a particular designing software for a beginner?
Thank you in advance,
Chris

I cannot stand the grey plastic on the 135 rear and around front park lights or the red defectors they look odd.

The rest of the car is ok and most will not even see the difference as you drive inside the car and the interior has not changed.
