Think massive parts sharing that BMW doesn't have the luxury to do. Do you really want to see a FWD Mini badged as a BMW? C'mon, superstock. You know you want to say it. So just say it. :rofl:

With that first sentence, you are saying a BMW is exactly like any other car. Do you honestly believe that to be the case? If so, then why did you buy a BMW, other than for the badge factor?
Yes,...

How can they be the same rarity? The 3-Series coupe has been out longer and it is undoubtedly built in greater numbers. It is going to take a miracle for the 1-Series to catch up to the many, many...

Exotic as in rarer than the 3 Series coupe, which has been superstock's point of reference for dissing the 1 Series.

I have sat it both. I don't have an enormous torso, yet even I felt the 3 Series in back was getting tight for headroom. Much better than a G37 coupe, but not as good as the 1 Series. In the 3...

That's probably just your bias talking. Check out these specs from the recent edmunds comparison. All cars tested with sunroofs. The only legitimate argument for space in favor of the 3-Series is...

There really is no discernible difference in quality between the two interiors. Seats are very similar and share the same power controls, where that is concerned. And this is reflected in road test...

Precisely. It's funny that people here (the 1-Series haters) cite the looks of these cars as some objective truth, when it's far from objective truth. What do they say about people in glass...

A cheap fork with massive parts sharing with the 3-Series, so your analogy doesn't even apply here. Just like Kinu said -
"They share the same engine. Same transmission. Same interior materials....

In a lineup that includes a $123,000 car. It is entry level BMW. No need to mention "high end" cars like Rolls-Royce. Even without RR, BMW is now (like Mercedes-Benz), a premium brand and is...

Not much heavier? It's about 100 lbs heavier than a well-optioned M3 sedan (with sunroof, EDC, nav, heated seats, the works). Considering how comparatively stripped it is, and the fact that it has...

It's not ridiculous. It's quite relevant to your analogy (using pilots, of all things).
Did you forget the turbocharged diesels that BMW have been using in Europe in recent times? Your implication...

superstock,
The CSL was a lightened version of the M3, full stop. To argue otherwise is insane. It doesn't matter how many they sold, the point is that BMW do know how to add lightness. Period. ...

And what is the relevance of that to what we're even talking about? That's right, ZERO.
Your comment that BMW have forgotten how to add lightness is blatantly false. They just choose not to, for...

Long ago? How long ago was the M3 CSL? Didn't seem too long ago.
Note: OPTIONS. Nobody forces you to buy the car with options. The Z4 M in base form is a very elemental and focused sports car. ...
