On another note: the 1M was an unexpected success for BMW. The initial figure of 2,700 became 6,309, which implies a win factor of 2.3367. More than just a fringe benefit. And Valencia Orange was initially supposed to be a rare color conceived for the 1M (they avoided the word "exclusive" though). Now let's see what happens if sales of this "1M owner's only" polo shirt stuff also start to soar.
Hmmm .... Maybe I'll pay my $115 to BMW and see if I can hook a sucker on eBay for a $200.

The 1 series M is the most badass, coolest, sickest BMW to debut since the 1988 M3. The E30 M3 finally has a successor. Please welcome the stupidly fast, wickedly tempered, awkwardly named, possibly perfect little son of a benchmark - Automobile Magazine, August 2011
