BMW 1-Series Convertible

I want a BMW 1-Series. Not just the way in which I want most of the cars discussed here, but rather a deep, carnal, yearning whose only cure may be purhase. Specifically a 135i Coupe, though I wouldn't mind it in the Tahiti Green pictured below on the newly unveiled convertible variant. Is it just me, or is it damn nice to see a new interesting color on a great new car? Not a lot of people like green cars but I'm gonna go out on a limb with my respect for this one. I'm not alone in my 1-Lust apparently, as BMW has received an unprecidented flood of pre-orders for the car months ahead of its Spring 2008 launch. With the possible exception of the new Nissan GT-R, the BMW 1-Series will be the hottest car of 2008.

The 1-series is the first car in a long time that has ignited such a passion, a yearning, and deep-seated need within me. Talk about a back-to-basics, elemental BMW experience, and you have to include the 1-series (which to me recalls the compact dimensions and driver-connectedness of the old E30 3-series). I'm not in love with this color, per se, but I'll admit it looks premium. One would almost guess that it was a BMW Individual special order - and that sense of exclusivity is something I can appreciate.

Oh, and I'm going to be a whore and suggest you change the title graphic. Me no like. And yes, I'm whining and no, I couldn't do better and whatever, your face, you know??
