Wait wait, the Impreza WRX hatch made the list? Clearly I have different taste than the article's editor. I snapped these pics of a WRX in the parking lot at my office. (Pardon the crappy phone-quality pics):

Call me crazy, but I think that looks pretty great.

Anyway, here's the thing: I don't think the 1 series is BMW's best exterior design. But that's also what makes it sort of endearing to me (in an ugly duckling, runt of the litter sort of way). It's the snout-nosed, flappy-eared, pocket-M car that just won't quit. It's not an "official M car" you say? Well, the 1 just doesn't care.

On the freeways of LA, everyone is driving their identical, Barbie doll 3 series. I'll gladly take a sassy little 1 series over that. People can point and laugh, but they'll be doing it from my rear view mirror. hehe

Jeremy out.
