Handling, braking, balance on par with 3-series?
I absolutely love the new 1-series -- that it's lightweight, small and the 135i will essentially be the sports package with 6-speed manual. But having the 3-series set such a high standard in handling and balance, could the 1-series equal that?
For example, the stopping distance and nose dive characteristic of the E46 was wonderful enough. I haven't driven the E90. How would (does) the E81 compare?

Well, we'll have to drive one to know, but given
the engineering that runs through all BMWs and the market BMW is aiming at with the 1 series, I'd be surprised if all the things you mention aren't better than the 3. Plus, there will be significantly more power. If BMW decides to market the 1 at a "sportier" driver, it could be a real winner, if they decide to just make it a smaller 3, then it's just that, which ain't bad at all. If only it would come with a LSD.
