well i'm betting it wont make it to america, the US has the engine with 300 hp, and i don't think the bmw buyers here will settle for anything less.

but a bmw 1 with 180 hp is still a good car, power when needed but not all the extra sport frivolity if you don't need it.

The XFi's engine has less horsepower than the base and LSi and achieved startling gas mileage 53 MPG (city) 58 MPG (highway)

BMW make so many amazing engines you don't get access too, it actually makes me a little sad, cause you're really missing out.
