Thread: My new car BMW 1M

  1. #1

    My new car BMW 1M

    After a wait of three and a half months i finally got my hand on my new car BMW 1M Coupe in Valencia Orange.

    It looked stunning in the dealership:






    It certainly turned a few heads on the way home I tell you :bounce:

    Right that's it from me for now, i'm off for another drive. :wink:

    Does it ride like Judith Chalmers. It certainly looks like her

    Personally I'd have gone for a second-hand M3 but I doubt you'll be disappointed. Enjoy. :)

    was looking at one of these myself. Didn't realised they were 40k though :(

    Re: My new car BMW 1M

    Congrats on the new car! :)

    I've been thinking about one of these as an option when the time comes to replace my Z4M Coupe with "something more practical".

    Having bought mine new and suffered the pain of depreciation, I've vowed it will be secondhand...

    So give me a shout when you're bored with yours!!! :D

    Congratulations. I have a less exciting 1 series coupe but would love one like yours. Enjoy it.

  12. #12

    Re: My new car BMW 1M

    Nice car and stunning colour. It's definitely out of my price range though. I had a look at the ordinary 1 coupe 18 months ago but when you spec it up with options the price gets close to Porsche territory. I enjoyed the review of the 1M on Fifth Gear as I've driven most of the roads featured inc. Loch Ewe and the Beleach Na Ba. If you get the time, I would recommend a trip to the Highlands in your new toy before the autumn.

    Re: My new car BMW 1M

    Congrats, i really like these. For the money i don't think there's anything else new to touch this :?: 8)

    Very tasty indeed and no doubt extremely quick. 8)

    I'd give it 6 months before I had my license taken off me though.

    Very tidy, got the wife the humble 2.0l diesel 1 coupe second hand recently and that drives well so cant imagine what the 1M is like.

    very nice, saw one in white on sunday and was immediately green with envy. Only redeemed by the look of the guy who got in it.

    Looks amazing, enjoy it.

    How do I know it's an M1 ?

    I mean it looks real but could be a souped up 1600 Cortina.

    I demand to see a picture of the log book before I believe it's real. :wink:

    Congrats on the purchase! Looks stunning, should hold its value pretty well too what with the limited production!

    Love the colour and think its a lot of car for 40K and the bills will be less than an M3. Have fun

    Message to the OP.... You'd think so, wouldn't you, but in 3 years time I'll bet the dealer says something like "Well sir, this is a specialised vehicle and it won't appeal to the mass market. The bottom has fallen out of the market for the high performance sports coupes - It will be very difficult to move this one on at a decent price even though it's in such good condition so I'm afraid the best we can do is offer you....."

    Car dealers (and BMW dealers especially, it has to be said) are not the most generous of people - and I say that without fear of contradiction. So this is going to be a fun, but expensive, period of ownership. I am very jealous.

    Great car, I'd like one myself, I've got a 335i and the engine in that is great. The 1M, with a bit more power and the other M components, I'm sure will make it a great drive. Looks good too :D

    I think Rob is right, depreciation over 3 years will be biblical, but over a longer period, I think this will do really well- I think it's all down to numbers produced- anything volume will take a bigger hit (like m3/911)the rarer stuff will hold up after the initial vat/new car premium has taken its toll. Love the idea of the car, but I reckon I'd go for a mk1 gt3 and watch it go up in value instead.

    This is the logic I'm now relying on with my Z4M Coupe...!!! :D

    Love the colour, very 8) Haven't heard a lot about them as the motoring press is somewhat lacking here in Canada, from what I can tell anyway :evil:

    Anyway, looks the mutts nuts, and I'll bet it flys - but have to say that the BiB won't like that number plate at the rear :wink:

    Indeed, expect this to take a few years to wash out, definitely do not look to chop it for at least 3-4 years or you will be well out of bed.

    As for the colour the pictures don't actually do it justice it really is a stunning vibrant orange that sets it apart from almost anything else on the road at the moment. Orange stitching on the leather is also as nice touch.

    Enjoy your new vehicle and watch out for the speed cameras these little roller skates are lethal....... :twisted:

    Not trying to rain on your parade, but I'm afraid I could never drive a car that colour.

    In fact I struggle with BMW generally, I'll never own one.
