It will definately happen.

The manufacturers have no choice in the matter, and the EU politians don't care, as most of them are anti-car anyway.
And since you can't own guns, you can't revolt, your stuck. Sorry. USA keeps EU in business by buying the gas guzzlers

Your focusing on engines, lets get back to FWD vs. RWD.

You seem to be confused between the UK and the EU

And even in the UK we can still own some types of firearms, just not as many types as you can in most of the rest of the EU.

Except they are linked. The main reason I'm looking at getting a 130i/135i is because it's the ONLY smallish/practical car left that I can buy now that is still rwd...... and that makes me sad.

In MD, we can own a full auto machine gun. UK part of EU and laws are different? Just like USA.

If you talk about CO2, why don't you get a 116d? Does the VAT tax go above 20% for a 135?

Isn't the Lotus Evora practical?

At least they are not going down the road of Honda/acura with the ridiculously lame excuse for "sport" in the CR-Z. This thing you can floor it but will take 10 sec + to 60mph! Talk about lame.

I will take a turbo'd 3 cyclinder fwd 6 speed man next gen 1 series anyday over the likes of the above.

Everyone better hope BMW doesn't follow Honda down the road of total generic dullness.
Despite 25 years of progress, the CR-Z isn't as good a car as my 1985 CRX-Si.
