Why I love this car ...

Not sure if this was already posted but when I saw this I loved what this guy did in describing how our 1ers are special performance cars.

I had to watch it after hearing this. His voice didn't really bother me, but I lost it at "this car isn't exactly stock...it's got the ECU reworked by Dinan"

The camera work was good.

Superb production/direction in this film. And, of course, "the car is the star".

Indeed. That statement nails it.

i think if this car wasnt designed around runflats and got a better rear diff, it would truly be something special

but if you discount the n54 and the cars overall size, it really doesn't have much going for it imho

I've only had mine for a year and it's been a love hate relationship. Ultimately planning on keeping it forever since it was the first car I actually bought and because I genuinely think this is the 2002 successor. I doubt bmw will make another performance car in such a small package ever again.

Agree w/ the first part, not hard issues to fix though. LSD from M factory or other vendor, code out the e-diff nannies, upgrade suspension to Koni, Billstein or other, new tires.

Disagree w/ the rest. Love my n55

ignore the troll. our cars are diamonds in the rough and are so much fun to build. and it is a blast to beat 1Ms and e90 M3s - blow their doors off with the 135i. yum.

As quoted from that article - the 1M is a great daily driver - but you beef up a 135i for tracking.
