    Im a fan. A friend has a hatch, in the grand scheme of things its pretty tame in terms of changes from standard (KW suspension, M series diff, exhaust, remap, pads, semis and safety stuff like cage/harness/seat) and yet its a bit of a monster on the track. Still maintains full a/c etc so its comfortable and daily driven. Dynamically, the car is sick.



    As for the front end, I quite like the nose. In black its definitely not a girls car

    The problem is with owning a Luxury badge car,

    You have to have the latest model and the best model.

    I hate pov Merc's, BMW's and Audi's. lol

    If that was the case, I would be questioning the motives for me buying a car! if my thoughts were; "I have to have the latest and greatest"

    But the original question was "is a 1 series a girls car" I would say the answer is people are 50/50 about it judging by the responses.

    If you can get your head around the "image" complex, then the facts are the 1 is an exceptional driving machine.

    So I drove a manual 325i today to get the feel of it and have a comparison and well, it felt a touch slower than the 130i but fuck me, it felt like a better all round car.
    The back could totally be a mini bang bus in comparison to the 1 series, the interior didn't feel as small, cheap and Kia-ish and it'd look a shit-ton better on a set of BBS and well all in all, its got balls opposed to having a gina.

    Now looking for a better version of the 325i with lower K's than the one today (102,000), hopefully with a few options and in a better colour than as ATMO_BT1 put 'vanilla' silver.
    Fuck whatever you think, it needs aqua tint

    Good choice. Now join up e90 post for some mod-inspiration. Manual 323/325i with m kit is bad ass.
