NYC essential sights

Post by robsaboy » Fri Jul 13, 2018 8:10 pm

Aside from the 'normal' tourist attractions I called into NYC BMW :) Just like in the UK I was totally ignored which is a shame as I was ready to chat about the 140 as they would probably think it was a crazy small car..... The B7 was $157K inc options...

Do they even sell the M140i in the USA?

They really don't do hatchbacks at all.

Don't think they do. Thought it would be interesting to chat :) Plenty of V8 burble mini vans on the streets - rather than the UK deisel clatter!

Not currently. But the 2019 1 Series in saloon guise may go the States.
BMW has said multiple times the 1 Series Sedan would remain a China-only affair, but it seems the head honchos from Bavaria are having a change of heart. Automotive News has learned from an undisclosed source familiar with the company’s agenda the front-wheel-drive small sedan is in fact heading to the United States and is expected to hit dealerships early 2019. That honestly doesn’t come as a big surprise considering Mercedes is gearing up to introduce an A-Class Sedan to slot below the CLA in the U.S. where Audi has been selling the A3 Sedan for quite some time.


Riding on the UKL platform like the 2 Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer minivans as well as the X1, the 1 Series Sedan is currently available strictly in the People’s Republic. Although a prototype of the car was seen some time ago in Munich, it seems that for the time being BMW doesn’t have plans to bring it to Europe.
