Not a fan of the current cookie cutter.............same sausage..........different length concept.

Love it or not the one series will never be mistaken for any other model in the lineup.
Hey, what tires and wheel specs are on your red 1 Series?

I loved the 1 series since they came out. I admit they are ugly, but their ugliness is unique and appealing to me. I mainly love how it drives and handles. Would anyone know if the updated headlights on the 2011 - 2013 1 series fit on a 2010 and newer 1 series?

Like a lot of BMW's, it really depends on the color you get. I think that 1 series looks best in darker colors. It does have some odd lines and blends in better with the darker colors. The grey and black 1 series IMO look the best.

I wanted one of the blues--they are gorgeous. We ended up with white with the red interior and love the look of the bimmer.

My montego blue looks rugged with the m sport wheels but is also clean and refined for a classy look. Don't mind the look at all. Just keep it clean and don't try to do too much.
