I was in a BMW dealership recently mulling the 1 Series. Initially, I thought it was hideous... but lately it's grown on me. My worry is this... 4 years from now will the 1 series be the E36 3-Series ti of the lineup? Will it be the hideous, mutant, black sheep styling mistake of the BMW lineup that people shake their heads at and ask... who the hell would buy that?
Or is this car a winner that will end up with a proper niche following like the mini cooper and end up holding its value well?
