BMW 1-Series Hatchback Spotted With Manufacturer Plates

Illustration for article titled BMW 1-Series Hatchback Spotted With Manufacturer Plates

We've got to give credit to Phil, a BMW 1-series hatchback is something that those keen of eye might have missed driving around here on US soil and, even if some would have noticed it as an oddity, they might not have been so quick as to get such good photos of the thing. That it has New Jersey Manufacturer plates is no surprise, as most special Bimmers do. The question is, will the BMW 1-Series five-door, which is sold in Europe, join the 2009 BMW 1-Series already here in the states?

Probably not. If we had to put money down we'd say that this is just a car here for engineering evaluation purposes, an advertisement or something else. Nevertheless, we can dream can't we? (Thanks to Phil for the photos)

I'm torn on the 3-door/5-door...I think that both the Audi A3 and the 1-series look marginally better in 5-door for some reason. I guess I just don't like the expanses/proportions of a lot of 2+2 coupes in general. The extra doors just seem to fill the space a little better, to my eye. I feel the same with the MkV Golf/GTI, as well.
