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.

Invasion of the 1 Series @ the Welt

Hey everyone. Just returned from our ED trip. Here's a few photos of an unexpected surprise when we stopped off @ the Welt (11/9) to use our 15 euro voucher.... enjoy

That is lovely. How does the black look in person? I think I want mine in black, but I'm not sure.

Wow- the proportions just don't look right with the smaller wheels!

Too bad they decided the European 5-door wouldn't sell in the US. Better lines IMO. I'm still hoping for a 120d 5-door to be available here.

I don't know about the proportions, they seem ok, but I think it could stand to be lowered at least 1.5-2.5 inches... Maybe these are not the "M" suspension of the 135... http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/viewP...06168382873746

IMO, I think the smaller wheels make it look much more like an economy car than a true sports car. I agree, it could use a bit of a drop, along with a nice set of 18s or 19s.
