the sedan is hideous.

The 2dr isn't too bad...reminds me of the Benz hatchback...

And the mazda protege 5 look-a-like isn't too bad either.

What's with BMW and this "Dip" in the side doors on their new cars?!? It looks so bad! It looks as if someone hit them on both sides of the car. The Z4 has it and so does this 1 series! Both are shit BMW's exterior design wise! Nothing flows well on this car.

This picture shows what I mean the best:

No, because they won't be that much, they're supposed to compete with the Golf/A3.

With tax and everthing the base model will easily reach $40K Canadian.

Ad into that a sunroof, HID, some wheels, sport seats etc, etc whereever you look at it, it will end up being $50s. No?

doesnt look that bad, will make more younger people buy into the BMW name since it will obviously be cheaper then a 3 series, but thats imo

exactly what I was going to say. 40-50k is more expensive then my own car. Furthermore, I was asking what it meant.

Here is the price list for Germany.

http://www.bmw.com/generic/de/de/products/automobiles/download/pdf/1_SH_pricelist.pdf

Most likely 120i will be making to Canada. The base model is priced at 20,000 Euros

Based on today's exchange rate of 1.6

20.000 x 1.6 = 32000x 1.15(GST+PST) = 36,800Canadian dollars.

This price does not include, freight, air tax, this tax, that tax etc.

Remember we have just priced a base model with no options(ie power windows etc etc).

Also, it is expected that the new 1 series will bump the price of upcoming 3 series as this is a usual practice for crappy BMW marketing(look at the x3 x5 pricing scheme)

Coupe and hatch are ok. Not feeling the sedan. Hope it does not look like that for real.

As for pricing, remember it is not a direct dollar exchange between euros and cdn dollars. North America, and Canada in particular, has the cheapest car prices in the world. BMW would be stupid to sell the 1 series at current 3 series prices. I sure as hell wouldn't pay that much. I'd rather buy a benz (c class) for the same price.
