I think this is more realistic (well, probably not in reality) for the next generation 1 series.

We have seen the weight of all BMWs rise significantly in recent generations, and I think they are going to have a hard time getting the weight down 500+ pounds.

Not to say I wouldn't love it, because a 3K pound 3 series would have to equal a sub-3k pound 1er, which would both be awesome. Just not too likely......
