Awesome photos. The landscape and everything around the car is just perfect for its color.

Hmm, it has a nice little front end but still just looks like a revised hatchback. It's only when you see the side-profile or rear that you know it's a coupe. It looks small and the rear is awful.

I seen a stock TT next to it and I much prefer the TT's desing. The TT looks great and original whereas the 1 Coupe looked like BMW had dimensions in their mind and were determined to make a coupe out of them. Hard to explain really. In short, the 1 Coupe looks awkward.

TT looks good but in the end it's a squashed VW Beattle.

Jokes aside, it's just too feminine or metrosexual of a car.

True. I would never drive one.

Yeah in good lighting...even I can look good.

Goes to show you...anything is possible. Only problem is that I drive mostly during the day and I'm not blind.

Agreed. It seems that flame surfacing needs a long wheel base car in order to look good. The design elements look too busy and crowded on such a small car.
