The ex-WRX owner in me wants to love this car - I think it could be fun. But I can't unsee the Kia in it. I don't think BMW design language translates well to FWD based compacts. Cheapens the look a bit.

Are they trying to suggest it's different? Because it literally does away with decades of BMW history to be FWD-based with an i4 turbo. This car has much more "sameness" as the regular lot versus previous gen BMWs.

Nothing wrong with the i4 turbo, see 2002tii. Fwd is another story. Best just buy a jetta gli.

If the choice is only between option 1 and option 2, I am leaning toward option 1!

tii is injected only, not turbocharged. You'd have to find the very special 2002 Turbo for that. Either way, much more desirable than this.

Yeah I'll just be choosing option P next time I need to buy something new, total garbage. I thought the M designers went to Kia/Hyundai not the other way around
