Eventually. Realistically though it's almost surely going to be at least a year away though. My company has an outrageously good bonus scheme; Christmas, year end individual performance bonus and company level performance bonus that means I'll have about an extra close to 5 figures fall into my lap between December and February that will take a lot of the sting out of getting a new car. It's been so long since I had a car payment, I've forgotten what it's like to budget for one

The proportions of the 1 series were just a little off, IMO and the front end I definitely didn't particularly care for. It also didn't help that the pricing scheme didn't really offer a lot of incentive for anyone to get the 1 series instead of a 3.

There were a couple at the DC auto show back in February. More folks swarmed around it than the tastefully modded FR-S right next to it or the honestly-pretty-neat 100% hydrogen Corolla.

If you aren't already, join BMWCCA ($90) for a discount ($1500), do a BMW UDE (free and lops off another $1500) for more and if you purchase during the holidays ($750-$4K), you get holiday incentives on top that are usually better than their model year clear outs during Sept/Oct.

228i w/ all M-Performance parts. Great experience. Solid 8/10. Probably the combination I'd get. I'm going to look at an F36 during the winter.

Would have been extremely odd for it to have been otherwise.

So BMW is slapping M badges on everything now huh?
Don't get me wrong, I like the lines on that car, but I can't make myself agree that's an 'M car'. Nope...nogunnadoit.

There aren't many people that do consider that an "M car"

But it's brandished with M placards all over the damn thing. BMW is watering down an incredible brand, all in the name to entice kids that can't swing a 75-120,000 dollar car into their World.

Yup
They have tiers of M now lol
m sport, M performance, and then Motorsport for the real stuff. They started selling straight up cup Race cars at hysterical prices. I want a 428i GC With the cute m sport stuff, but can't stick a performance Torsten diff in the back

yes, I already knew that; you're just restating my point.

I'm not interested in any badges, only a car that will meet my needs and be somewhat enjoyable to drive within my daily driver budget. The vanilla 228i I think is going to be perfect in that regard. If I ever feel my penis a little too limp one day, I can always get an ///M badge from ebay and make everything right
