M1 or not, this car will be much faster than the Original M1. I know for sure it is not going to be 135M.



Never was it in M History, that people talked about the name of the car. So very nice, a new step in the history of ///M.

That's the name I was hoping for too when the rumors of a 1 series M started.

After reading through all the relevant threads, I've decided that I will rebadge my 1-Series M as follows, regardless of the final name put on it by BMW:
MI-6,
denoting that it's the only inline 6 powered M car. Yes indeed Miss Moneypenny.
But I'll make the "I" look almost indistinguishable from a "1".....

After which, I vill ruullleee ze vorrrllld....

I'm not feeling overly confident here. No M1, limited production - what if it's not much more than a 135is with an M badge on the tail and a $50k sticker price? We all know what this car could be - more fun and performance than an M3 - but if BMW dumbs it down and hypes it up I'll be very disappointed.

And quads, M control arms, flares, reworked engine, brakes, and DIFF. Please let's not go down this road again, it's got M written all over it in the spy pics. Never ever has there been an is variant with all the M bits and pieces on it let alone extensive body work. It will be an M car...whatever they call it doesn't matter one bit.

Hmmmm...limited means expensive

Probably will not have a v8 in it

Based on the X5 and X6 M series, would imagine it most likely would be called a 135i M or the 135M as previously stated. No matter what it's called, this should be hot - and expensive, so interested to see how it all pans out price and performance wise, and cosmetically.

I'd say M2 it should be.
There's much merit and logic in that argument.

It would tie in with the next gen 1 series hatch replacement going on sale, which they may well be considering calling a 2-series now....

Certainley makes sense......

Doesn't however mean that's what will happen

So, placing a bet on M135i could still be money well spent
