"BMW has started touting its new 1 Series as its return to a pure driver's car, a vehicle for all of those who believe the 3 Series has gotten too big and bloated." -motortrend

sounds good to me

^ I can't believe they would put the twin turbo in such a smaller car than the 3 series. If people are saying that a tuned 335i will challenge the m3 than what will this smaller car be able to do.

sadly a twin turbo will probably be north of my price range, just a hunch

don't worry juniormint, they're talking about bringing the 28 or 30 engine over also... so either 230 or 255hp NA straight six with valvetronic and dual vanos. I believe I'll be driving one in august when I go to the BMW Experience.
