Primarily because BMW NA limits our choices here, which helps to keep overall costs down. Plus they probably see a very limited market for this particular setup.

[OT response below...]
tii? Who knows. Officially there will be no 1 Series tii model (at least as of earlier this year, I stopped following the 1er status after launch), but many of the parts are now available through BMW Performance.

There has been much discussion of a 1er and 3er model coming that is positioned above the 135/335 and below the ///M. The tii name has been used occasionally in reference to these possible future models. BMW insiders also talk of a performace oriented 1er model coming in the future, but it won't be an ///M.

One thing is for sure, we have many many new models and variations coming in the next 12-24 months from BMW.
