    Facelift for the new F20 1 series already being suggested

    The design of the new F20 1 series is controversial, to say the least. BMW has made plenty of controversial styling decisions over the past decade so I suppose we should not be surprised. However, what is interesting with this car is that an amateur designer released his view of a facelift to improve the car and it's amazing how much these small changes improve the look. Take a look at the before and after photos here and wonder why the BMW designers did not take the same direction.

    because BMW designers are blind.
    i admit the facelifted car looks miles better than the original.

    it's much better than original.

    but i prefer the original because
    more ugly cars => lower sale number => less profit for BMW => maybe a policy change => more real BMW cars

    they should still steal designers from Audi or maybe grab Ian Callum from Tata Motors/Jaguar if they want to save BMWs looks

    A turbo DI I-4 is cool. FWD and retarded marketing toward "young" people is not.

    "Second generation 1-Series retains the only rear-wheel-drive model in its class."

    My bad.

    But I meant BMW's new marketing in general, the the FWD 0 series, or i, or whatever the $#@! it is.....

    I thought the new 1 series is going to front wheel drive and the real successor to the current 1 series will be a 2 series, which will be real wheel drive. Correct?

    Incorrect. Both the 1 series and the 2 series are Rear Wheel Drive

    The true successor will be the 2 series but the 1 series is not FWD. The new Mini platform may be based on it which will be FWD. The FWD BMW will likely mimic that Mini platform.

    Just awful. Hands down the ugliest car BMW has designed.

    Lets hope they don't put those headlights on the 2-series or coupe (whatever it will be called).
