Saw some pics trending on instagram; glad to see the full feature here.

As mentioned before, awesome & respectable build.
You basically did BMW's job for them. This is how the 1M should've been from the factory.

An interesting car. For the next course how about the turbo 6 from the M4 in a 135i with wide body.

Am I the only one that thinks this is a complete waste of time and money?

Not impressed. This money could have gone a long way elsewhere.

How would adding a supercharger make the car worse?

He already put in a huge low torque motor into a small car and then added the wide body to make it even heavier lol

If anything the car is begging for a SC lol
