Video review from Auto Week:
http://www.autoweek.nl/video/2422/ri...-serie-m-coupe
Warning: Dutch language, but some nice drifting footage.

Short conclusion: the reviewer is a professional tourang car driver (and ex-champion). The car balance is perfect, playful. Somewhat too much weight. Car is a a blast. His new favourite drift car. Pitty about the non-M-specific engine and turbocharging, but hey "times change." This car finally puts back value in "M", after the X5M and X6M debacles.

SkiddMark's 3 main reasons for getting the 1M (review of June 6, 2011):
http://www.skiddmark.com/2011/06/06/...eries-m-coupe/
"[T]his innocuous-looking entry-level M car is probably the best car BMW have produced in nearly a decade. How did I arrive at such a preposterous conclusion? After all isnt this just a 135i with a re-mapped twin-turbo six engine and a fancy body kit? Well, on a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 is Ive just been given a free lunch and 1 signifies Ive been screwed, the 1 Series M Coup is a 12. And a half. Seriously.
"So what does 400 bhp in a 1 Series feel like? The overriding sensation is one of effortless performance."
"It was on that Scottish hillside that all the pieces clicked into place, the punchy engine, quick steering and unimpeachable chassis were laughing at my attempts to challenge their supremacy. Having been an M3 CSL owner myself for almost 8 years, I thought Id learned all there was to know about BMWs best rear-drive chassis, but the 1 Series M Coup was so much fun that I turned around and tackled the same set of tight cambered curves again. Twice."


Last December SkiddMark shot one of the - IMHO - nicest static display videos of a VO 1M (thereby already announcing that only 450 1M's would make it to the UK shores):

Background info regarding that video ("In the studio with BMWs 1 Series M Coupe"):

August issue of Automobile has a full 1M review

Here's a teaser:

The 1 series M is the most badass, coolest, sickest BMW to debut since the 1988 M3.

Gee, I wonder if they like it?
