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.

What is this?

I think I saw the 1-series convertable in camouflage on PCH today - Laguna Beach, about 7:15pm. Very definitely a BMW - angel eyes in front. Sorry for the poor pictures - but it was kinda neat to see in stealth mode. Wonder what purpose it serves to drive it down PCH is quasi-rush-hour traffic?

Good eye, thanks for sharing. They routinely test new vehicles in traffic. It takes a lot of real world driving before a car can be released. Sitting at lights, stop-and-go, etc. Especially if its got turbos.

If I were a 16 year old girl.

That made me laugh, thanks!

But as you well know, precious few automobiles look truly good from ANY angle. For instance I've always thought the Boxster/Cayman looks a little weird from certain angles. Nothing like the 1 series, of course.

I think one of those cars that simply don't have an ugly bone in them is Aston Martin (DB9 and V8).
