Hi!!
Well, that 0-100kph time is not very impressive(well, actually it is by itself) if you compare it to the new 330i, which does it in 6,3 if I remember right. One would think that there would be bigger difference between these models.....

BMWUSA lists the 0-60mph time of the 330i with the 235hp "performance package" at 5.9 seconds. I too expected better performance from the 1.

0-100kph = 0-62mph, that always makes a few tenths difference

BMW Germany lists the following technical data
130i 6.2sec ca1400kg
330i 6.5sec 1505kg
530i 6.9sec 1570kg
630i 6.5sec ca 1550kg
730i 8.1sec 1880kg

z4 3.0 5.9sec 1365kg (old engine - 231bhp) => 5,91bhp/kg
130i 6.2sec??? 1400kg (new engine - 258bhg) => 5,43bhp/kg

I just checked out the torque of both the old and new engine - it's both 300Nm. That's the key factor for acceleration.

that car alone might be enough to skip a M version of the 1.
Fair point. I was thinking how much can they do to make it a true M car? I suppose it's "easy" to put in a large engine for the 1 chassis. But things like SMG III with all its 11 modes, slip-differentials, M Dynamic mode, M seats, etc. might "over cook" the 1 series. Too much of a few good things in a small body? Or will it be a debased "M" car, but heavily marketed as "M"? Time will tell.

It's slowly becoming a familiar sight on the streets - I'd say about the same as the Mini. Supposedly BMW is not able to offer the 1-series in the USA at the moment due to the low exchange rate.

I would say it's a rare sight to see it on UK roads. It's just too expensive compared to it's rivals. It's got to compete with the likes of the Golf, Astra and Focus. These cars are better equiped as standard and a lot cheaper. A decently spec'd 116i costs about the same as a Golf GTi. So guess were people are putting their money! In this market sector people are concerned with value for money, which on paper the 1 Series doesn't offer. It may have the prestige badge and rear wheel drive but in my opinion BMW is asking too much for these two things.
