E82 / E88 1 Series (2008 - 2013)
BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

Seen one in S.D.

I was at the UTC mall here in San Diego, when I spotted a 1-series from a far distance in the parking garage. As I came closer with it I noticed it was a 120i...then the plate...a Baja Cali license plate...damn them.

Funny that Mexico has it but we don't. Is there even a way to import that car and have it pass inspection etc?? Nothings easier than driving it right over the border

I saw a 120i myself today on the way back to work after lunch, on the 5 north in north county. It was dark blue with euro plates, though. I managed to snap a couple of pictures with my phone, which I can't upload at work. I'll try to get them up later.

Del Mar, several times, but not in the Plaza--just up the street a couple of blocks.
