Spy Shots? Official 1 Series.

Thanks to and They have provided the car community with real photos of the new 1 series. Pictured is the 135i, the 6 Cylinder Twin Turbo car. Said to go 0-62 in 5.3 seconds, this car really isn't the best looking out there. The lines are a bit odd, the front end is really not too beautiful. But the interior looks quite good, and the car as a package will be hard to compete with.

Where else can you get 300 hp and 300 ft lbs. of torque in a car like this? Not to mention the potential already seen in the 335i in basically the same package.

With BMW re-entering this small car segment, other automakers will soon follow. I hope the 1 series does well because it will only spark Cadillac to follow the same market, and create a true competitor under the CTS. It's just too bad we can't get those diesels.

I will be driving one of these if it comes in under 35K and has an electronic LSD. Goodbye shoddily built V with your 1999 interior and Getrag rear end made of glass.

Although the G8 is attractive at under 35K also with its chassis and 362 HP, lets face it that its a GM car, it will be a bloated pig, sport a drab interior, and get lackluster mileage, plus reliability will be an issue.

One thing is for sure, I will never miss the parade clunk or foot parking brake, well done Caddy.
