It's just so special. Such a shame I've racked up pictures.
I've owned both and greatly prefer the 1m.
On the street it's much more aggressive and responsive. It's also much smaller and lighter which makes it more engaging to drive.
I also prefer the massive fenders and wide body compared to the m3.
I'd never go back to the m3. My 2 cents....
