DVLA...interesting fact

especially for the UK based among us

if you get a 135i you might find that your vehicle catergory is actually M1 - i wonder why this is and whether they know something we dont in the sense that there is not going to be an M1 for a least the time being anyway?!

Where abouts does appear 'M1' in the V5?

It should show:

Make: BMW
Model: 135i M Sport

Typically the civil servant div's at the DVLA will screw it up and type it as M135i...?

V5 'M1' is just a code for passenger car

Sorry to let you down.

'M1' is just the European vehicle category.
M1 signifies a passenger car for less than 9 persons and a GVW of less than 3500kgs.
