Personally, I can think of nothing better than a compact BMW with a powerful and flexible inline six. That is what BMW is offering in the new BMW 130i. We're big fans of the 1-Series and can't wait to see it on the US shores. The 1-series is a serious compact, but we're worried the high price may deter its popularity. This model was particularly attractive with the aggressive wheels and delicious dark metallic finish. Yum. A coupe or sedan version of this car may be popular here, and we've heard criticism about the small rear hatch area. Give the US the coupe, and it will be the closest to a BMW 2002 rebirth as we will ever get.
