    "Amusingly enough, a few years ago, BMW did a poll of 1 Series owners and found that 40 percent of them thought their car was front-wheel drive. This meant they didn’t care either way."

    I hate people.

    I wonder the percentages if they had asked 128i vs 135i owners or coupe vs convertible. I am surprised at that 40% no. but I guess I expect more people to be enthusiasts like us.

    Too many people buy a bmw for the image, not the driving dynamics. Hence the recent direction BMW has been going in.

    Whatever, we're getting the 2 Series which is basically gonna be the exact same thing as the E82/E88 1 Series. Just following BMW's new classification, Sedans = Even Numbers vs Coupes = Odd Numbers (Except the 6 Series, which has the 6 Series Gran Coupe)
