Why is everyone assuming there is such high demand? The 1 series was a very slow seller in the US, they were only selling 500 a month or 6,000 a year for the 128, 135 and 135is. Compare that to a Mustang or Camaro at 75,000 each a year. By any standards 6,000 a year is not a big seller when the X1 sold over 25,000 in the US last year. 360 dealers and 1-2 allocation per month doesn't mean a big seller especially if you include the regular 228. Even assuming BMW could double sales of the 2 series that still puts it as a niche series. Remember its a coupe and most people do not buy coupes.
