The 1M (and 135i) hood is just fine bellow 280 kph V-Max speeds. That is why BMW M will not offer a higher speed limiter aka "driver's package" for the 1M. At least that is the "story" I heard.

No one is really gonna be seeing those kinds of speeds - except for maybe a few car nuts over here. Like me. And my hood has been holding up just fine above 280 kph on my "tuned" 135i.
