With the amount of weight a 1 series has, it does not have a chance at becoming an autocross champ. These car manufacturers need to understand that the way to appeal to an enthusiast driver is to first start with a light weight chassis, then add a whole lot of sidewinder power, and leave out the GPS, nav, million watt stereo with heavy amps and speakers, leave out the 24 air bags, and ABS, DTC, SBC, and all of those crappy drivers aids, remove the power sunroof and seats. Back to basics a la e30/e36 days! I've said it before and I'll say it again, if BMW were to build a brand new e30 325i, I'd be first in line to pay fair market value for it!!!
Basically BMW needs a "CSL or LTW" for every Series lol.
