BMW 1 Series M Coupe



BMW finally brings out its anticipated 1M. The process of the 1M took nearly two years to complete. The scientist at BMW claim that the vehicle will have the a near-perfect driving behavior of a BMW M car. The 1M will maintain its N54 Engine, twin-scroll turbo used on the 35i models. The chassis of the new M car is provided with new aluminum suspension, only found on the newest of M3s. The 1M weighs 3,461 lbs weighing only 250 lbs less than the E92 M3, and 50 lbs more than the E46 M3. The maximum output the M1 puts is 335hp, and 332tq. Having that much power puts in the 1M's 0 - 60 time in 4.7 seconds. The 1M has acquired a new feature, the M Button. The M Button sharpens the throttle response for more sporty driving. And can also be setup towards the driver's preferences.

Unfortunately the pricing is not yet listed.

Personally, I think it's kinda ugly.. I'd still aim for the M3.

It's just my personal opinion. And even when the 1 series came out. I didn't really like its look either. But I do agree that the 1M looks better than the regular 1 series, but it doesn't appeal to me as much as the M3 does. And I think the quad is too much. The rear is hardly as aggressive as the front. But it's just my opinion.

Seeing that BMW hasn't released the official price yet for North America, I wonder how you would do that.

The media anticipates it being $45k US starting point. An M3 base model is $59k US, and no one buys a base M3. In the US, the 135i starts at $36k, in Canada $43k, 8 grand more here.

In Canada the base M3 is $72k, it cost $4k for exec package alone and another $2500 for the Mdrive package. So realistically your M3 is costing you $79 grand or so, while your 1M is costing you $53 grand CDN ($45 + $8).

Affording 53 grand is completely different than 80 grand. You can buy a whole other vehicle with that difference. Even comparing the two base models, it's a 20 grand difference.

It's foolish to think think BMW would price the 1M to step on the M3's toes. :scratch:

If you're in the market for a 1M, you're not looking for a lethargic 3 series coupe.
