1 series comes to america

just read it in r&t i think it was. BMW plans to import 2 models, a 128 and a 135, i beleive, next year. the 128 gets the standard 3.0 I6, while the 135i gets the twin turbo. Projected retail under 32k.

just thought you would like to know

R.I.P fast 6


Two wheels or Four, I'm happy as long as the throttle is pinned.

And, fortunately, a trunk rather than a hatch.

I've never seen a 1 series like we're getting in Europe. I've only seen hatchbacks there.

Yes, Europe has the had the hatch for a few years now, and we will also be getting the coupe (or "trunk").

However, we don't have a 128i

We have the following hatch variants: -

116i
118i
120i
130i
118d
120d

The coupe will launch in the UK with the following variants: -

123d (2.0 litre twin turbo diesel - world's first production diesel engine to output more than 100hp per litre)

135i (same twin turbo 3-litre I6 as can be found in the 335i)

The 135 ought to scoot right on down the road...

indeed - I like the idea of 200hp from a stock car with a 4cyl diesel engine though. The good thing is you can drive like a maniac and still get around 40 mpg.

112d ?? I'm guessing you either mean 118d or 120d.

The congestion charge rules in London are changing - Currently, hybrids don't have to pay congestion charge, but as of next year, its all going to be based on CO2. Cars emitting less than 120g/km of CO2 will be free in the congestion charge; whether they are hybrid or not. Cars emitting more than this will not be free - even if they are hybrid. This means the new 118d will be free! Thanks to BMW's Efficient Dynamics programme.

RWD car from a top marque free in the congestion charge zone - ftmfw

Rumour has it the 3-series range will get the same treatment, so the 318d will also be free in the congestion charge

No I don't. If you want to see one, there's quite often a black one parked between Paddington Station and Gloucester Terrace, on the same road that the Fettler and Firkin used to be on...one street north from Praed St.

I passed by that car walking to the station half the days of July, shaking my head every time. My buddy Matt's flat, where I stay when I'm in London, is right around the corner on Gloucester Tce.
