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.
I have always used the figure 739 actual 1M's to the US because that is the number that are Registered here in the US. The Rolex Pace car will never be for sale and could be sent back to Germany someday.

Besides it's always a good conversation starting point to debate the total number of US cars.
2011 1M, Valencia Orange, All options.
