The C-pillar looks a little too narrow especially in proportion to those big ass haunches - but less greenhouse than the 1-er and that's a plus.
I've got a 135i so I'm def prejudiced - but seems to me the 1-er has such a classic snub-nose bull dog look. The 2 coupe...smoothed out- it's like they took out everything that gave the original it's unique character and now it looks like a small 4 series. Nothing wrong with that- if you like the 4.
I'm still open to considering the 2-er. Gotta see it in person with M-Sport pkg.
