BMW 1 series - why?

I've got mixed feelings about BMW producing a 1 series. What does everyone else think? I can't find much info about it. http://www.edmunds.com/future/2005/b...nt.num1.0.bmw*

I think this little baby is hot hot hot!!! What a little badass. Now if you go to the site, you will see the hatchback... which I am not too fond of. I think they will "tweak it up" styling-wise, or I would hope so cuz it just looks blah. Looks like a Volkswagon.
But I have seen this 1 series in a Motor Trend about a year ago (est.?!) and seen more pics and it looks SCHWEEET to me. But they need to keep it a 2 seater, cuz as a 4seater there would def be no legroom for me. LOL
Plus, I looooved the BMW 3 coupe that my ex and I had... uhhhhh... Damn him that he had to take the car with him. Why oh why!?

BMW engineering in a smaller, more affordable package? hell yes! that's why i love the MINI so much. too bad i'll probably never fit in a 1 series. oh well. guess it means i still have to save up for my 5 series.

Cool. That car looks pretty sweet.
Couldn't really say much about a hatchback. I'd have to see a picture cause I can't really picture it in my mind.
