The part that I don’t get is such a resistance to think the other way on some of the cars possible virtues. The possibly better brakes, the hope (even though little at this point) that BMW could actually produce something smaller and lighter and the nice fact on top of that is it maybe cheaper as well.

Those are the only points, no matter how hopeful; I for one would like to see BMW succeed at. But if others here don’t want that, that’s fine, but post a real reason why other then it’s ugly.
Bro if it did handle like a champ and weigh 200lbs less, like it should because the 1 series chassis is noticably smaller than the 3 series, then fine. It is what it is which would be a nimble, fast, impressive vehicle thats tailored to the younger crowd.

BUT ITS NOT! I'm not an engineer, I dont know why the car weighs so much. All the reviews contradict the claims of future 1 series owners who continually post information that is incorrect. Yes its smaller so one might assume its this amazing track car, but wheres the proof? Yes the fact that the car comes with 6 pot brakes is awesome, but its not like the brakes on the 335 is garbage and if you wanted to upgrade you can at anytime from one of these vendors.

Did you miss this part of my post:

I know its not and said so. The point of the post is that I was saying it would have been a good thing if it was. It would have meant BMW was changing the way its looking at cars a little. Thats all.

No I read it. I was just trying to explain the reason for all of the hostility going on right now over the car.

Can you imagine how bad ass it woulda been for them to make 1 series like an E30ish car? Thats what a lot of people were hoping.

lmao and he's opinions, speculations, and beliefs when he hasn't driven the 1 either is the truth also? No one has driven the car yet (including the 1 lovers), so you know what? We can SPECULATE all we want. It isn't hurting anyone (except a few people's egos) so let it be, thats what a forum is about. If you guys dont care then why did you guys hijack this thread?

I love the speculation, it gives insight into how some people perceive the world. You'll be abale to go back and read all the wrong assumptions and make fun of people
