    I prefer the third pic (your sig). I'd take an e34 chassis with one of those new 535 engine combos anyday...

    There they go making the same mistake again. Pricing the 1 series so close to the 3 series that they won't sell. Same thing happened to the 318ti. Also a major problem when the X3 came out and wasn't selling because a loaded one cost as much as an X5. Maybe one day they'll get it right.

    That refreshed 5 doesn't look any different from the older ones. :\

    yea um, whats so different about the 5? all i see are some different wheels. there isnt 30k worth of car there to make 1 series a smart purchase. It should be priced more towards the lower 20s since they designed it to compete with the VW GTI.

    The front bumper looks a bit rounder and the air intake has been turned upside down. Not that much of a visual facelift. Compare to this:

    All they did was make the body shape less distinctive.
