We can blame the EPA. There are diesel powered BMW's in Europe getting 45-50 mpg. Why in the hell can't we get them here? Ultra strict EPA emissions regulations, that are unnecessary.

@Franklin I dont understand why. I read about the Camaro and other cars that my euros can't buy.
Franklin Lopez May 14, 2012
Before reading, I have to disclose that I'm not interested in reading about a car that my American dollars cannot purchase in America.
Ben Bourdon May 14, 2012
You may all want one but I don't think the demand is high enough in the U.S.
Trey Reilly May 13, 2012
I would like to know Bimmer execs reasoning on why this is not coming to the States... Seriously, WTF?!
Patrick Joseph May 13, 2012
I agree. I've always preferred the hatchback version of the 1 series. If the a3 sells well I don't see why this 1 series wouldn't.

BMW you suck! I want this car in the states!
Description: Transmissions include a standard six-speed manual or an optional eight-speed automatic as well as an eight-speed sport slushbox. Styling wise, the three-door is identical to its already on sale (in Eu...

Not that bad I actually like it
Daft Punk May 14, 2012
ugly parrot faced...thing
Rudolf Dassler May 14, 2012
This really looks horrible! Such a fine machine in such an ugly body...
Josh Banning May 13, 2012
The merc a class looks so much better than the 1 series and the A3
jberaza May 13, 2012
This is just plain ugly. I would pay for the Audi RS3.
Bob Jones May 13, 2012
Wow I never noticed how much it resembles ET lol
Nick Christensen May 13, 2012
What big eyes you have
Thomas Mackey May 13, 2012
Wow....that's ugly. Why?
Paul Lissona May 13, 2012
Yah wth do they have to make them look kinda weird, I usually think German cars look the best.
Dimitry Mikhailovich Malikov May 13, 2012
It does look like ET!
Patrick Joseph May 13, 2012
Both cars are ugly. The new 1 series headlights look disproportionate. And the rs3 looks a little bland. I would spend my money on something else.
Nick Sti May 13, 2012
The RS3 is beautiful. This. . . looks like a bug
John Serely May 13, 2012
I disagree with you, Maximilian.
Maximilian Steiner May 13, 2012
The Audi RS3 looks much better than this!
Janak Solanki May 13, 2012
Why does it look like ET?
Description: Powered by a 3.0-liter straight-six engine with 320hp, it features an M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology with a Twin Scroll turbocharger, a direct fuel injection system and variable valve contro...

30 is a lot. Besides, I like this car. Sure the rear is a bit funky but so was the previous M Coupe.
Lukas Lebs May 13, 2012
Lol and the 30bhp extra is worth noting...??!?!
Description: The front apron is also typical of M styling as it reflects the car's firm and responsive handling. Those large air intakes are required in order to meet the cooling demands of the engine. Riding...

These small cars could actually use the rear half door like the Saturn Ion and Mazda RX-8 used. Would make entry so much easier.
Scott Westphall May 13, 2012
Good god that is ugly. Things looks like and 2000 Kia Rio Cinco minus a set of doors...only uglier. Seriously, that is just awful.
Lou Guerrero May 13, 2012
Haha, sorry trey. They're fun little cars. Enjoy it!
Trey Reilly May 13, 2012
As a GTI owner I take offense but sadly agree... Fn awesome!
Lou Guerrero May 13, 2012
Makes a GTI look pointless.
Lukas Lebs May 13, 2012
Bmw version of the a3 or vice versa
gammo66 May 13, 2012
so much better than the last gen 1series
Trent Griffin May 13, 2012
Looks funky....I like it as a hot hatch....
Ghee Buttersnaps May 13, 2012
Kinda reminds me of the z3 coupe
Stephen Reed Warren II May 13, 2012
I'd never feel good stepping out of this... Having said that...it looks kinda cool
Ryan Delano Thomas May 14, 2012
Oh god it looks awful
Danyaal Farooq May 15, 2012
Where are the quad exhausts ?!?
Alex Klemstein May 14, 2012
@Rudolf No worries, in these times they'd replace the V12 with a V6 and not bring it to the U.S.
Rudolf Dassler May 14, 2012
Wouldn't mind at all for them bringing back the 8 series... Big ass coupe with a V12?! Hell yeah!
Matt Piccolo May 13, 2012
Looks weird, I like the rest of the car though
Lucas Hill May 13, 2012
Rear kinda looks like a mini
Badoor Nasser Mobarak May 13, 2012
I thought this was the scion iq
Jay Kolvenbag May 13, 2012
The rear is a little...... Fail
Luke Bailey May 13, 2012
@chinoso, and there was already a 6 series....
John Serely May 13, 2012
@chinonso there already was an 8series lol
grant.c May 13, 2012
Gah that's ugly.
Chris Redfield May 13, 2012
Needs quad exhaust to be an M haha
Alex Stanzel May 13, 2012
They had an 8 series a while ago. Who knows, it might come back.
Chinonso Akolam May 13, 2012
It won't be long before we see the x4,2 and the 2 series. And I won't be suprised when we see an 8 series.
Chinonso Akolam May 13, 2012
Maybe it's just me but I see a problem with BMW trying to fill every need in the market, in less than 10 yrs their line up has swollen from the original 3,5,7 and x5, now with the inclusion of the 6,1, x1,x3,x6, and 4 series that is on the way.
Nick Sti May 13, 2012
Camera for reversing and maybe a sensor
Ben Bourdon May 14, 2012
Cool Grandpas BMW
John Serely May 13, 2012
Not the right color IMO
Nick Christensen May 13, 2012
Awful from every angle
balls deep May 16, 2012
Logan did u not notice this is a two door hatch?
Logan Oleary May 14, 2012
No door handle in the back?
Matt Piccolo May 13, 2012
Yea in a car this size, you can't expect much more leg room
Rithhin Jawahar May 13, 2012
Seats look hard and uncomfortable :(
Trent Griffin May 13, 2012
Back seats are for insurance purposes...
John Serely May 13, 2012
Your right, hamza, but it is a small car
Hamza Hamid May 13, 2012
The leg room doesn't look too comfortable
Jared Michael Scalla May 13, 2012
The back seats look so angled.
Phillip Holbrook May 14, 2012
90% of these cars will look like this 100% of the time.
