Nice 1er and 3er comparison photos

Cool to see them side by side for the differences:

Wow, that really shows how strange it is that BMW would make 2 cars that are so similar yet priced very differently. The answer of course is that people are just as strange so we'll buy both kinds.

Oh no I agree, the 3er definitely has a sleeker body style and it really is a beautiful car. The 1er has a more raw and aggressive look imo.

Funny thing about the 1er is that I swear it's hard to take a good picture of it, when you see them in person they always look better than the pictures.

I'd take both

Although I like the twin pipes of the 3er and fewer smooth edges on the 1er.

It really does look like the l'il bastard brother of the 3er! (In a good way). It just says, screw you, I'm not going to listen my older brother. I was all set to buy a 335i coupe... until I drove the 1.
