If they make a 2 small like an e36-e46 sized car with a nice sleek roof line they can really hit it out of the park in my book. I don't know if that would sell enough to make money but I can hope. I like the size of the 1m but I do think it's a little tall.
I agree wholeheartedly with this. The 3, 5, 7, every single series from BMW has grown in size since their inception, and I'd hate to see the 1&2 suffer from this as well. They're SUPPOSED to be the entry level, light, tossable, sporty cars! The F30 3 series is the same kind of size as an E39 5 series. The cars are growing too much and need to stop!
