Hmmm I like the new styling too. And Imagine the car with a BMW M aerodynamic-kit with some huge air intakes and wide tyres!

At least it looks quite good compared to this one:

I dont know if it is the next 1 series because i heard that the 1 series is a coupe/hatchback that yellow BMW is a saloon and is quite large....but it doesnt look too big which is in my view a good way for BMW to head in styling and it would be even better if they could sort out those headlights!

All the best

The only thing is that's just a drawing, and we can't see the rear. It could vary well end up looking like the red one in the trunk. Yes I agree the head lights & front grill need to be worked on.
