Things wrong with this:
It's a van
It's front wheel drive
It's a 3 cylinder
0-6 in over 9 seconds
Not slated for US diesel
FF AWD if it comes to the US
Electronic PS
Brake assisted "LSD"

Things right with this:
Optional 6 speed manual
Diesel option
... AWD? kinda...?

The thing that pisses me off most is that they completely revamp their naming system, so that even numbered cars are coupes, odd numbered cars are sedans, they rename the iconic M3 coupe the "all new" M4, and they rename the 1-series to the 2-series.

Then they proceed to release the 4-series GC, 6-series GC, and now a 2-series van.

What gives!?

It's bad enough that they are making this monstrosity, but shouldn't it have at least been a 1-series??

Now a BMW pickup truck would be nice to see. Especially if the front end looked like an e30...

Actually it seems the manual is standard and the auto is optional... At least from what I just read.

This is true. Likely so they can charge more for the inevitably more popular automatic transmission option.

well what I mean by optional is that you can pick one or the other. IE "manual is available"
