Face of the Future BMW Compact FWD Car

Here is the face to the new BMW Compact.

The new BMW 1er Coupe and Cabrio will get something similiar which takes the car back to it's 2002 origins. The single light is accomodated by three LED bars at the side of the main unit for increased illumination.

BMW's evolved from single headlights to two.
The design in real life , actually works quite well and gives the car a very unique identity.

I like it, but only for the wife who can't drive a stick or RWD in the snow.

I'm not a fan of this news. But it's obvious that the photo is one artists interpretation of what it could look like. So hopefully the real deal does not annoy me as much.

WTF is up with the kidneys having whiskers!

The single lights look alright other than that.

The 2002 was not FWD, but a real BMW.

Isn't that the 1 series M coupe pic with some PS? The driver, road, angle are all the same. Wonder who did the render.

I don't think it looks bad. For a 1 series Golf.

Scott26's infos are always right but this one doesn't make sense at all..you can see clearly in the spyshots of the new 1 series 2 headlights not on.
