Really? So the new 2 will essentially be the continuation of the old 1, while the new 1 becomes a mini cooper... ok.

I'm skeptical because BMW's never done this before (to my knowledge). They replaced the Z3 with the Z4, but they discontinued the Z3.

It would kinda being insulting to current 1-series owners, no? "Yeah, I drive a 1-series... no, not one of those fwd econoboxes, I bought it back when it was like the 2-series. Really."
