    BMW & V6? Sounds like BMW & front wheel drive.

    your response doesn't make sense. The question is, why wouldn't BMW bring the 1er to the US? The coupe, sedan and cab will likely be a huge hit.

    On good reason is image

    Would you be happy shelling out $80K on a Sseven Series only to see a 18 year old pull up next to you in a $20K BMW - esp when it has been modified in a tacky manner. Actually I am embrassed by those modified Sevens (stupidly big chrome wheels etc) that pull up next to my 325, but that is a different story.

    I hope the 1 Series comes here, but can see the marketing issue in NA. Heck Acura and Infinity only exist in the US market because it seems to be needed here. In the UK a Honda NSX is just that, a Honda. But here is needs to be an Acura NSX to differentiate it from cheap Hondas.

    BMW NA knows it would sell, but at the expense of some more profitable 3 series sales, so you may never see a 1 series in the US. Pleasing enthusiasts is the last thing on BMW NA's mind.Chris

    In the end it might just be how the car is marketed and the final build quality of the car. Yes it will cut the 3er sales some but I think by a small margin. The most expensive 1 will be a few thousand below the base 3er if they're smart to create an acceptable gap. My take on it is this might boost the E90 from being a wanna-be BMW to a car taken more seriously now that it has a little brother.

    AGK, I known its RWD, but....

    BMW has a tradition of cars with inline engines (4, 6 cyl). This is the same story for the RWD set-up. So a V6 not likely to come and a I6 won't fit, I guess. So a nice blown 2L I4 would be great.

    By the way, what is the source of the V6 story?

    supposedly, the e81 will be in upper-mid 20s

    ...and that the e90 will move up by a couple thousand, based on what i've read in various locations. of course, who knows if this is accurate at this point.
