bmw 1 series sedan idea

im thrilled by this idea,but seems like nobody talking about it so much,to say the true theres no topicat all(?)...
this is rough speedy photoshop but just imagine..
i would kill 4 it! the rear end is killer..
im sure theres gonna be a 1er sedan for next generation,too bad it didnt came out 4 this too...

I think what you're looking for is a re-styled 3er. I mean if the 3-series is BMW's compact sedan, then what category will this be in?


You got skills in photoshop my friend

Looks better than the coupe...

But even with extra door...realistically I wouldn't be able to lug friends around in those back seats...unless they were amputees.

Yeah once the 1 Series is restyled, I will look at it as an option. Especially since I'm sure (by that time) the new 3 Series will be even bigger which would be too big for my tastes.

Currently I think it's cruel to have friends ride in the rear of the 1 Series...

I must say that is the ugliest thing I have ever seen.... If you want a big car get the 3 or 5 series.

A 1 Series sedan does not make any sense IMO. The five-door hatchback is alright but no sedan, that's what the 3 Series and 5 Series are for.

First off, nice photoshop work.

I really hope the 1 resists the size creep that the 3 has experienced. As for the backseats on the 1, well I just treat mine as a two seater and consider the backseat for children and emergencies only.

Heh. You think the size creep is bad on the 3 series?

Check out the new Audi A4. Looks like an A6!!!

kill it kill it! that thing is ugly... if you want four doors, by a 3 series... who cares about the back seat ppl... tell them to drive their own cars if its too small...

the 1 is perfect the way it is... unless they want to put a v8 in it

As if the 3 series sedan had enough leg room... I can't see myself riding in a 1 series sedan without my knees stuck in the driver's back.

I think the idea is great. In fact, now I almost NEED a compact 4dr Bimmer. Wait...

Seriously though, I love the compact 4 dr look. It looks better on the 1 than the coupe and I think the same on the E30s.

Looks good, but kinda like a limo. The front door is too long right now; looks the same as the coupe's plus a rear door. If you can cut the front door down in length about 20-25% then I think this would be quite an attractive car, though I'm not sure about marketability.

Perhaps photoshop the door combo off a 5-door hatch?
