Diddo! Southern J's latest post perfectly summarizes my feelings on the matter of BMW's maniacal insistence on never bringing the great cars stateside. He found a killer WIRED article proclaiming the all-new Advanced Diesel 1 Series as the winner of the World Green Car Award. And of course—as soon as it was proclaimed winner—the car was promptly packed up and shipped on back to Deutschland. At least the 135i sports sedan is still on its way.
Now I raise my voice to the heavens (with the half dozen other doods who like kinda like hot hatches, and by heavens I mean BMW NA) that someone, anyone will just snap out of it and bring the great rods here! At least give us the option to upgrade our options! Sheesh.
PS: No, I do not regularly say "flippin'"—never actually—the title of this post is merely a quote from the WIRED article mentioned above. So thank you for listening.
