    Lots of assumptions in that story, I think. Who knows what they're testing under that mule's skin.

    I wish we got the lower level 1 series hatchbacks that are so common in Europe. Being RWD and fun to drive, it's a small car I'd consider buying.

    The current 1-series is just a slightly smaller 3 series which makes it almost as heavy and almost as expensive which turns out to be almost the same car with less room. The 2002 was a lightweight car which was aimed more at excellent handling.

    If BMW is serious about this the current 1 series needs to go to the trash heap and an all new lightweight version needs to be constructed. If you need every emenity know to man then this isn't the car for you. It needs to be designed with light weight as the #1 priority right from the start. No more twin turbo 6 cylinders like the 3 series. It needs two engines and that's it. Two 4 cylinders should be available, one with a turbo.
