No way they will bring a hatch.
I was hoping for a 135 but it looks like I won't be getting it since the housing market has taken such a nose dive.

Well.. you can always have hope.

The worse would be to buy a 135 coupe and find out a year later you COULD have got the hatch!!!!

I'd sell it in a heartbeat.
Plans are for a convertible. Who knows how much these will be?

**** I wish I could sell my house.
Two mortgages and utility bills are killing me.
I'm going to have zero once my debts are paid off.

Wonder how much 318ti.org is worth.

I'm very picky, about everything I buy. It took awhile to find the right replacement for my Scirocco. Now that the 1 series is in sight, nothing but a 2 door hatch, will entice me to give up my 318ti. If they never bring one to the USA, I will move overseas........again.

i dunno, ever since the anti-suv mazda mp5 became a mainstream hit, 5-dr touring styles have gotten more acceptable here, so i wouldn't completely rule out the possibility of a bmw hatch return in the u.s. what used to be a small niche (vw, subaru, volvo, eg/ek buyers) grew in size to sustain things like the mp5, toyota matrix, all euro compact hatchbacks and touring cars, all those dodge magnums, countless focus wagons and hatchbacks, bla bla...

i know bmw is still a lil p*ssy hurt from the pisspoor 318ti sales in the 90s, but they should know that if there ever was a good time to bring a compact hatch over to the u.s., it's now.

it seems the rear seats in the 5-dr 1er are pretty damn cramped from everything i've read. why not just bring the 3-dr over along w/ the coupe and call it a day? the 118d 1.8 diesel (63 mpg), 118i 2.0 petrol (38mpg), and 130i 3.0 petrol (265hp, 34mpg). the ti was like an e30 tribute, the new 1er coupe is definitely a nod to the e30s, and this would wrap all that up into a nice ti/e30 tribute.

might be a 1 series but i'm still not in love with the front end. might wait for a facelifted one. 320si's are nice but not very fast or tuneable, but love the fact theyre a homo/btcc/wtcc car. dont want an e46 so probably another e36 before the 1 and e90 3.

I've read a lot that they feel the hatch would canibalize some of their market away from the Mini.

I like it, will look for one in about 10 years. IF BMW was p**y hurt by the low sales of the ti, they don't understand their own marketing. I personally know of 2 people in our small town that went to the dealership to buy a low priced ti and were upsold to a 325.
Another bought a ti and then traded it 6 months later for a 325. Now I just bought my first for a song last week and am already looking for another.

I have a deposit down already for a 135i. I have no idea what it's going to wind up costing me, but I want to have my daughter driving the 'ti between work & home, and school & home. Other than that, I'll still use the 'ti for autox and track events (and on weekends). The 135i will slowly become the autox and track car, once my daughter gets a bit older.

She's got a permit now and has been learning to drive on the 'ti. My wife and I won't let her drive the slushie audi we have, until she masters the 3rd petal. She's doing great so far.

I almost can't wait to get rid of my e90 330i right now, in anticipation of the 135i. I only wish they had a sunroof delete option for those of us in the US.
