Weight of 1-series/possibilities of M1
Any educated guesses as to the weight of the 1-series? From my calculations about 3140lbs(1430kg), seems a little heavy though as my 323i has a curb weight of 3150lbs.
solve for weight
weight(kg) = time * bhp * 0.9
Thats a little heavy. But assuming M1 ends up about same weight with 240hp.
time=1430/240*0.9 = ~5.3 sec
hopefully the two door is a bit lighter ;)
Just some ramblings...

Re: Weight of 1-series/possibilities of M1
two door shoud be 2o-40kg less.Weight difference between a e46 2liter car and an e46 6cylinder is 70kg,so an e81 6 would be about 1330kg,but all additional weight would be on the front axle and you usually can feel the handling difference between a 318i and a 325,330i.for allround sportiness a high rev four or a turbo four are imo better,it would have perfect ballance and weight 400 pounds less than a 6cylinder 3er series.
A 1.6 liter using their new registeraufladung turbo technology pioneered in the 535d could deliver about 200 hp and blow away all sixes exept the m3,a 2liter turbo would blow away even an m3 and on a twisty road a m5 would have no chance.

Just got their teaser brochure from the local bmw dependance here in germany,116i is 1280kg,120i is 1330kg,120d is 1415,just about 60-7okg less than a comparable e46.
Its actually not a really small car,1 centimeter more exterior width and height than an e46 and just 20cm shorter.
