    BMW 135i turbo coupe confirmed by photos... and rear design exposed

    Oh wow! This changes everything.

    I don't care about the size one bit. That has never been one of my primary criterior while shopping for cars. I'm not a very big guy and I have no problem with the compacts out there. Throw in BMW performance, keep the price low enough and this may very well be my next car!

    This is definitely a good looking coupe. A true replacement for the 2002 and 3 series of the 70s and 80's.

    I hope BMW keeps the price low, but I have a feeling it will cost around $30k.

    I want a 1 series so bad I can taste it. I wonder if I can squeeze all 6'3" of myself in there, though?

    They need to bring this car to North America A.S.A.P.! I'd probably get a 128i as long as it was roomy enough but I may end up with a 3-series or X3 anyway.

    I'd much rather have the 3 or 5-Door. I'd also love the 120d for economy and torque.

    Hmmm...seems like I've seen this before:



    an updated version of this with the high trunkline (Hyundai Accent)

    It's awkward and looks really really wrong.

    I think I'm familiar with the usage. That was a mistake on my part.

    That's exactly what I thought. Everything else looks great, but that generic mid-90s econobox rear end totally ruins it for me.

    I am on the fence with this one. I will have to see it in person. I really wish that they would bring the hatch over here, I love the looks of it from pictures!
