Thumbs up 2012 BMW M1/1M convertible by JONSIBAL!




Talk about attention to detail. Look underneath the car.

Tell me about it man. Weird thing is that I wasn't looking forward to seeing the convertible. I've VERY picky when it comes to them. Top down motoring provides a rush like no other. Nobody has mentioned it but I wonder why we haven't seen the convertible mule. One would assume they would launch together.

Stunning, going to be a very difficult decision choosing between the coupe and convertible.

When I asked Scott in the M1 Feedback thread he said that the convertible would be a few months behind the coupe however this could be after initial launch or could be a UK/Euro specific timeline.

Mark.

I wonder if that means it goes on sale in Europe at the same time it does in the U.S.A.

Wouldn't Silverstone be a more appropriate color?
After all, this is a true ///M car

Looks good....maybe it's the perspective, but it looks like it's a bit high off the ground.

It looks fantastic!

One thing, though. The car looks cross-eyed; there's something not quite right with the driver's side headlight.

cool beans. I think artisically that the kidney grills don't match the front spoiler, but a great render.

I would buy a coupe when my M3 lease is over.
