according to some magazines its a lot faster, especially with the sport or ///M package (whichever its called) due to light(er) weight and a good amount of power, it is coming close to the m3...
are they going to import it to the US??

GTI? Nein, danke.



...what would a 1-series ///M version be called? Certainly not M1...

Yes, its fast. The Sportpackage cost about 3000$.

I don't believe they will export this car for the USA.

If you want a fast 1 serie:



V8 (from the E39 M5) and 450HP...

Here is a vid:

My mate has a 120d, he could get over 900km out of one tank filling, incredible...

Check out the Hartge H1. It has a tweaked E39 M5 motor with 450hp in it, and the sucker weighs less than 1.5 tons. Unfortunately it costs more than a brand new E60 M5...

The 120d is great! A lot of torque. Damn, with the 120I, you couldn't get over 500km...

Interesting. I think the 1-series would be a great seller here in the states. For the price of an RSX you can buy a 120i manual!

Q. What are the "Style" and "Dynamic" manuals?

I can't help you. We havn't those pack here.

The 130I is not cheap: $40,400.00. In swiss money, the 120I start at 37'000.-- and the 130I is 50'400.--. (An E46 M3 is 93'400.--).

but e46 m3 is 55k here in the states, so it would mean 130i should be priced between 30 to 35k. Id so rock that car
O YEAH,if you think 50k in switzerland is expensive,130i costs over 65k in asia
