+1

In addition to this: im sorry but mini is not the greatest fwd ever build. It is good, but there are cheaper and better cars in terms of driving experience.

Moving to fwd is risky, simply because this segment is filled with things like ford focus, alfa romeo and many others, cheaper but yet joy to drive cars. I dont believe bmw gonna make a milestone in this segment, like they did with 3series, but i predict they will lie they did.
