IEDEI’s new daily driver.

yes a few months ago i picked up a bright Valencia Orange BMW 1M.  740 cars brought to the US market. Mine is #374.

I will be doing a full review and photo-post about the car at a later time.

All i can say for right now is:  It is the most fun car I have ever driven….the best car i have ever driven—and i’m still shocked that i own it and drive the pants off of it every single day.  Worthy of all the hype and more!  Live the dream, my rock and roll people!

foto of the day. Rivals.

I went to an Audi GTG yesterday featuring a number of new TT-RS picked up by their customers.  Good turn out, but I found these 2 parked next to each other to be quite an interesting matchup.  the BMW 1M and the Audi TT-RS.

I love Audis and all….but that 1M is just irresistable!

how to ruin a 1M.

the BMW 1M is such a cool car, although it may be suffering from ‘overhype’ at the moment.  I wish it was easily available and not ‘limited edition’ so nobody can get one…not that i have the money or anything but we can all dream right!? right!  Maybe one day….However, the owner of THIS 1M should be dragged into the streets and interrogated for bad taste!

Top Gear reviews the BMW 1M

 

I really think BMW is going down the wrong direction these days——–BUT i’ve always loved the original 1-series coupe, as well as the 1M.  Jeremy Clarkson reviewed the 1m on Top Gear UK sunday night…..so take a look at what he thought….

Evo/Chris Harris; reviewing the BMW 1M & Porsche Cayman R

I 100% agree with Chris about the 911R and the ‘R’ badge on Porsches—-it is a bit of novelty, but offensive to put an “R” badge on this Cayman.  Either way—-both cars are great, however i’m not really someone who cares about drifting, per se…..so much of the video where Chris is drifting isn’t my cup of tea.  I am however a fan of both of these cars; although I lust like a barbiturate loaded idiot after the 1M.  Holy grail stuff, for me at least.

either way…cool video.

The Canadian who did the European delivery on his new BMW 1M (1-Series M) has documented his delivery of the car in Germany quite extensively.  Click the link to check out the full writing and story behind his pick-up (currently still in progress)

Very cool car, and a very cool way to pick up a new car!

BMW 1M vs. Audi TT-RS

Car & Driver is improving!!—-good on them to test the 2 cars we have all been waiting to see a test of against each other—the wicked Audi TT-RS and the majestic BMW 1M. I love both of these cars—kind of torn because of my ‘Audiphile’ nature telling me to prefer the TT-RS, however deep somewhere in my head it’s the 1M that captures my imagination massively.   I do despise the looks of the TT-RS, as i think they pretty much ruined the 2nd generation of the TT—a car that deserved to evolve better from the timless MK1.  To me, the 1M’s styling makes it one of the best looking cars of my lifetime.  Imaginative, toy-like, and just aggressive.

The Infiniti G37 IPL is also in this comparison, however doesn’t really match up to the other 2 in terms of size, style, or performance.  The TT-RS posts a 0-60 time of 3.6 seconds (!!!!!) and beats the other two in lap times and most performance criteria.  No surprise there, but by price, i have to say the BMW 1M is such a great car starting at $47k.  I don’t think the owners of either of these 2 monsters will be dissappointed….i think the Porsche Cayman R would have been a good 3rd car in this comparison.  Meanwhile….please excuse me while i continue to have wet dreams about that orange 1M.

BMW 1-series M….hmm…

I have always been a fan of the 1-series—–almost traded for one 2 years ago, however I changed my mind after sitting in one for a little while. I still love them though—-to me they are the only BMW on sale today that gets me interested.  So the upcoming 1-series M seems like a pretty badass version of an already stellar performer in the 135i.

That being said…i just priced a 1M at $49k+ using the BMW build-your-own feature on their website.  Part of me thinks sub-$50k is a bit of a bargain for such a nicely equipped, limited edition, smaller version of the M3…..but is that really a reasonable price?  Sometimes I think it is—-whereas other times I think it is an absurd price for a hotted up 135i, which can be had for significant discounts.  I’m not really sure what to think.   But i like the alcantara-coated interior, i like the vulgar wide fenders, and I like the sound of 335hp under the bonnet, M3 bits, massive brakes and the look of pure aggression overall  It’s not as quick as the upcoming TT-RS and it’s not as well recognized or respected as the M3—-but for someone who had $50k to spend….and really loved the purer side of BMW’s M division——i think this car is a nice example of how BMW can get it right sometimes….assuming you’ve got the cash!  IF i had the cash, i would most certainly buy one in a heartbeat.

BMW brings out the hype machine for the 1-Series M.

LOL @ Segler’s honesty…….so you like it then, man?

BMW 1-Series M….coming out in early 2011 (supposedly)….i’m hearing 340hp, losing 100-200 pounds, stiffened suspension, big brakes, all sorts of wacky modded options.  The price estimate by IEDEI? $45k.
