You can access the the hidden BC setting on your instrument panel and see your exact build date. Its the date your instrument panel went live - which is the day your car was built.

The frames were custom made locally here, and I tried my best to illustrate in the photos that the inner borders were color matched to the Valencia Orange color for the 1M print and to the BMW ///M colors for the E30 M3 and the M1 prints. Really an incredible custom frame job and incredibly expensive. (All 3 ran me close to $1K)

A big thank you to Chris for working on the custom M1 print for me, as well as putting my real VIN and production # on the 1M print, you rock.

The BMW M History poster you see on the ground that's still wrapped I purchased from http://hiveposters.storenvy.com/

Another big thank you to Joel for making the poster custom for me by putting my VIN, production week and coloring in the 1M.

The 1:43 models were purchased from dealer except the dealer 1M model which took me awhile to acquire. These will soon be complemented with their 1:18 counterparts when @Dackelone gets the 1M's in production(October-ish).

The BMW Art Cars I've gathered over time..I'm trying to get all the race cars, and there's 2 I believe that I'm missing.

Anyway, here are the pics:

You are sick!!!! I love it. Man - I thought I was obsessed, bordering on needing to be medicated, but now I feel OK.

More!

It should work just like it has on older e8x & e9x models.

Hahah, thanks man. I don't know what it is about this car but I'm such a sucker when it comes to any little knick knack for it.

I know when the car initially came out and were heading to customers, a limited run print was sent out but I never got one, probably because Canadians always get the shaft. I'm still looking to find that print. I believe it's the same print that comes with the 1M Owners Polo but much larger.

It's this one here: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showt...light=1M+print

That EVO 1M Mug and T-shirt is also something I might get:
