An eagle eyed reader happened to spot an unusual 1-series in Flint, Michigan the other day thanks to the fact the car in question had the three door hatchback body style that's not sold here either (we only get the 2 door coupe and convertible). The 1-series hatch happens to be a 123d. Don't go getting your hopes up, BMW hasn't changed their mind (yet). This example is part of Bosch's diesel promotional fleet along with a number of other cars. The 123d and several other European spec diesels are new arrivals that are already scheduled to spend some time in the ABG garage in the coming weeks. We're particularly looking forward to driving these new arrivals since none of them are big hefty SUVs. Stay tuned for reviews soon!
