      Actually, the 1-series oddly doesn't look too bad in that picture. Maybe the white kidneys (and other white bits) plus the Valencia orange color sorta go with the slightly odd styling. At least it has character and its own style (also compared to other BMW models). A helluva lot more exciting design than the new A3 which is just current and old Audi design cues stitched together. *yawn*

      I think my e36 looks better than those cars even after my brother crashed it and we jimmy rigged the front end back together so he could get to work that afternoon.

      You know, I'm not crazy about the A3 and the Audi fan "clean styling" line is tired but when I look at the 1-Series...in this instance, I have to say that an A3 is refreshing to look at in comparison.

      The X1 looks OK in person, and has quite attractive lease rates, even in Canuckstan. The interior is more cramped than an CX5, and from what I had remembered the 8spd autotragic is standard on the x1.

      To stay on topic, I'm going to vote the 1-series.
      I loved the 1-series hatch when it first came out. It looks phenomenal with the M-Sport package.
      It's like they pulled an Acura with the 1 series. From the beautiful 3g TL-S to the abomination that we get now.

      Are you still beating your girlfriend?

      Try answering that question with a Yes or No.

      Longtime BMW fan and driver (learned how to drive on a 3er), but BMWs have gotten uglier and uglier (esp. up front).

      Can toss in the new 3 Series to the mix as well as the new X3 (which is worse than the X1) and it's not like the front of the 5 and 7 Series aren't lookers either.

      It's a darn shame b/c they finally go the interior quality up to where it should be for their lower end models (3 Series, X3) - so BMW addressed that issue.

      Why you wouldn’t (buy an Optima SX):

      Because you have your eyes on the Frigidaire Limited Edition Camry that you saw last weekend at the neighborhood Autoplex

      Don't see anything wrong with the face of the X1. The side profile is what makes it ugly, IMO.

      As for the 1er, the whole front piece is what makes is ugly. Hopefully the aftermarket will be able to solve that issue.

      I think I have to agree.

      As for voting: can't decide, they all remind me of Mr Potato Head.
