Thumbs up FWD Baby Bimmers

With the Oxford plant 100 years old it would be great to have a whole new range of BMW,s built in the UK next to the MINI. There has been a lot of negative remarks about FWD posted on here from purists but I rekon we will see an exciting range of vehicles from BMW that will be hard to ignore!
Here are my fantasy renders

A FWD bimmer .... ew.

Also, I'm glad you rendered these cars correctly with the steering wheel on the proper side of the car.

The next generation of 1er will likely be all fwd, leaving the 2 Series on the rwd platform.

just because Mercedes does them, it doesn't mean BMW should.

The mini line-up is very well executed (not everyone agrees, in fact I'm not a big fan of the countryman and paceman), but the Mini, Cabriolet, Coupe, Roadster, are basically what you have rendered, so I really don't see the point. Mini have imo one of the best fwd setups of any manufacturer.

Let Mini do the cheap(er) and cheerful, and leave BMW alone.
