Guy trying to pass a 135i as a 1M - G-Power with 375ps

So this guy has clearly labeled his car as a 1M with a G-power tune and 375 ponies! At 66K swiss francs for 18k kms, he's trying to sell it for more cash than some other 1Ms with less kms...

Would anyone fall for that?

I don't understand the language, but I do see "135i" in the description area... as far as the price goes, lol, a price is only valid if someone is willing to pay it.

From the ad: "basierend auf dem 135i" = "based off the 135i".

Now we are arguing about different uses of the word "based". Based is a bit strong. The 1M was forged from the 135i.

Saying the 1M isnt based off the 135 is like saying the Z06 isnt based off the Corvette, Shelby GT 500 isnt based off the Mustang.
The Z06 is, the the Shelby is and the 1M is also. To say otherwise is flat out wrong. Nit picking at its worst.

NYC, no one ever said the 1M isn't based on the 1series, but to mod a 135 and try and pass it off as a 1M is just plain wrong, and that is what this whole thread is about.

So regardless of whether it's a base Corvette or a Mustang GT, you can't mod it and call it a Z06 or a Shelby. Even if you replicate it down to every single bolt and part, it's still just a replica. Not nit-picking, just a fact.

Reminds me of what Carroll Shelby went thru when he sued those kit car guys who were making replica AC Cobra's like his original...

Well, actually you did but your post saying that mysteriously disapeared! Imagine that.
Anyway, it seems you've had a rethinking and see clearly now. Alls good.

Ageed, I hate faux, homage, clone cars or whatever they call them. Like wearing a fake Rolex. No respect at all from me.

No, I NEVER said it wasnt based on the 1 series. I just don't understand making the point that the 1M is based on the 135. I know that, we all know that! There is nothing wrong with that. In the context of this thread it makes no sense to state the obvious, right?

I only know yours was deleted because I couldnt believe you typed it and remember it well. You challenged Brokenvert and you were pissed because how dare he say that the 1M was based on the 135 and dared him to say on the M3 board that it was based on the 335.
You said it, own it like a man.
One of the things I hate more than phoney car drivers are liars.

Its easy to call shots online guys......

Having said that, this is what, the 10th+ post between the three of you in this thread that if it weren't for the 135/1M relationship would be borderline completely off topic.

Is it possible to brush it off, quit bickering, and have useful conversation on here (aka BACK on topic)???? smh lol love that pic

It's called an analogy. If there is a 335 that has done an M3 conversion and BrokenDwnVert makes the statement that the M3 is based on the 335 it wouldn't go over well. I said that, but where do you get off calling me a liar and a phoney. Seem like you might be living in that glass house. I never insulted you once in my post response to you. What pisses me off is when someone tries to put words in my mouth, I never said the 1M wasn't based on the 1series, that's common knowledge.

Mr.Metak2you never said that. I deleted Mr.Metak2you and BrokenVert 's posts - bc they were off topic. I even went back and reread both of all their posts! The reason why they were deleted was bc it kept pulling this thread off topic. NYC6 you are putting words in Metak's mouth.

I have had enough of this silliness - thread closed.
