    Spy Shot: BMW 1-Series spotted in San Fran

    Spy Shot: BMW 1-Series spotted in San Fran



    Hoo baby, it's almost a dream-come-true... Autoblog reader Judd pointed us in the direction of this photo taken of a BMW 1-series, sans most of its badging, in San Francisco. BMW has thus far denied that it will bring the much-coveted hatch to the U.S. due to poor currency conditions on this side of the pond, though many in the industry speculate that the vehicle may come over in coupe and convertible form in a few years.

    While we can't say one way or another that this picture means anything, it's nice to dream, isn't it?

    It's a very decent compact family hatchback, despite what Jeremy Clarkson will tell you.

    I didn't like the 1-Series at first, but, it grew with the time and I'm a huge fan of this car.

    The 130i is an absolute hoot to drive.

    Maybe it's just the angle and lighting of the photograph - but that Bangle buggy looks like a four door VW Golf to me.

    I agree, I had to take a double take to make sure it wasn't a VW.
