BMW 1 Series

I never know that there’s 1 Series in the market. I heard before BMW was gonna introduce 1 Series based on Mini platform, but it never introduced in the U.S. market.

Is it only sold in Europe?

Please share your experience if you’ve ever seen or driven this car. So, is it competing against A Class?

RE: BMW 1 Series

iv had a 1 series for a week no more than a month ago.

DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES BUY ONE OR DRIVE ONE

they are a hatefull little (emphasis on little) cars

they handle poorly, no better than that they handle like they are on a mission to kill you on purpose!!!
go too quick into a corner it wont over steer oh no, just bags and bags and bags of understeer!!!

one little incident that i clearly remember because its the closet iv ever come to a crash was i went into a roundabout at no more than 25ish mile an hour (slower than i do in my mercedes sometimes) and it just went straight on, now the general concensous is that you gently realease the turning force that you are aplying to the steering wheel to correct understeer either that or give it plenty on the gas in a RWD but neither worked in that bag of shit!!!
straight on all the way, braking only made the situation worse!!

i cant be bothered to expliain my feeling towards this car as it makes me mad thinking about it.

however if you would like to know more about its poor brakes, lack of power, lack of space in the cockpit, lack of looks and very poor fuel economy then please feel free to ask some more questions as i will have had time to gather my thoughts and calm down by the time you do ask a question!!!

hope this helps
