Thanks to the boys at spyshots.nl as theyve caught the new 1-series out in the cold Scandinavian testing area.

With more development under the cars belt, it has now been moved for cold climate testing.
So far little is known about what the car will ultimatly represent. There have been whispers of thin LEDs and large circular foglights upfront (ala X1). There have … CONTINUED
