    What a pig

    I think it looks alright, it’s certainly growing on me, but I don’t really understand why they bother with a 3 door. 

    • filippo

      Because they look better. I rented a 3-door 1-series a few years ago in Spain and from the side profile it looked much sleeker than the 5-door, even though it shared the same roof-line. It’s a shame we miss out on so many of these 3-door European models.

        I think that this is actually one of the few 3 doors that looks worse than a 5 door.

        • Drac

          I agree, it almost looks like a van.

    The four door 1 series already look ugly, but this two door version is way uglier.

  • Golfschwein

    What’s the betting it’s the same size, or larger, than the 3 series compacts of a few years ago? They were better looking, too.
