Get over yourselves guys.

I track my 135i with the SAME engine as the 1m. Also have Catless downpipes, intakes and other performance mods.
I have an LSD, Coilovers and part ///m suspension.

I also am putting an intercooler / methanol injection.

I can tell you for sure. After 3-4 laps and temperatures going above 250-260 you will DEFINITELY see a noticeable decrease in power. If you don't you're either
A. Running lots of Meth to keep the engine very cool and have dual oil coolers
B. Not pushing your car hard enough to feel heat soak
C. Not very attentive to the way the car responds and drives.

At the end of the day the 1M is still an N54 powered 1 series with lots of carefully engineered suspension package (Fenders, Suspension components even LSD).
+1

And wow. Just wow. You guys are worse than the absolute immaturity I see on VW forums.

One guy posted his honest opinion on the car. Can someone have an opinion that doesn't overlap directly with yours? Apparently not. He liked it for the most part but had some gripes. So.. someone has a genuine complaint in his eyes about a car you like.. That doesn't mean you respond with "OMG YOU ARE LYING THIS CAR IS THE BEST EVAR IT WILL NEVER BE BEAT EVER IT IS BETTER THAN BIG FAT M3S AND PORCHES AND EVERYTHING; M3 GUYS JUST HATE ON US" ...well they hate on you because you make yourselves such easy targets. There's a word for that.. oh yeah..



Here's somewhat of a kicker. The 1M is 90% 2010 N54 135i. There ya go. It's a 135i with the PPK (software and an extra oil cooler, 135i already has one cooler), LSD, suspension, and wider fenders for the wheels. Look up the part numbers on realoem. Same intake manifold, piston rings, "lightweight" crankshaft, intake, intercooler + piping, exhaust (other than the axleback, part numbers only changed due to cat changes for emissions), engine, chassis, etc etc.

It's a bit of parts bin car, prone to the VERY SAME heat soak issues that the _35i and _35is cars are prone to (yes the "is" cars experience heat soak as well, even with their extra oil and water cooler). Though I still love it and I wish they would continue production an extra year or so just so I could buy one, the fact that some of you half turned it into your personal golden calf is ridiculous. I am a proud 1er owner, and an admitted wannabe 1M owner. Grow up, and learn to take one critical point about an otherwise great car. I won't be coming back to this thread again, children.

I have tracked my 07 335i and my 05 Subaru STi many, many times since 05.

But since you have read this post I am sure you have read my entries about Miller Sportspart track, right.

I have never had the HPFP issue, or limp mode on my car. I have ran at Miller in over 100 degree temps without any limp mode or significant loss of power in either car.

But as you say my cars are perfect.

And your extensive experience is?
My experience lies in sport bikes (liter bikes) not turbo cars. We can discuss sport bikes if you wish?
But if you read through this thread, which you mentioned earlier that you have, you will see that i NEVER stated I have experience in this segment. I never made those claims. Again, I am simply Switzerland and enjoy readin about people's experience with this new 1M and other cars and try to provide a neutral perspective on things.
Some people seem to think that this 1M is perfect and if anyone says anything wrong about it, their experience with it is inconclusive, not credible and void. Seems like even though you have a little experience with your 335 and a Subaru, that this overrides any personal experience that two people have had with the car already?? This is how you come off. Remember, you don't have the 1M yet, so, anything you say about it, is, well- Ultimately VOID and holds no credibility

But you being a member of the SCCA and BMWCCA trumps the OP's and Dan Parker's personal experience with the 1M as well. Oh, and your BMW with the N54 engine trumps my M3 with the S54....
We all get it. Your cars are perfect and so will your 1M and everybody doesn't know what they're talking about..So, you win...

I get it this response is a Switzerland type response right?

Dan Parker's track experience post is very informative, similar to all the Magazines entries we have ALL been reading right. At least Dan has a 1M unlike the OP who drives an M3 with sour grapes about the 1M. oh wait you also have an M3.

I only wish I could find one of the Perfect cars you are talking about!
