You can't really compare a 1M and a GT3. The GT3 is nearly 3 times the price, it should be a better car.

What's the point if it's only going to be available in three colors (white , black , orange ).

Yeah, but you can have the wheels powdercoated for $4-500.

From a shop, indeed. Some BMW vendors such as Tischer have started offering OEM wheels in black, but I'm not sure if they do it themselves or source them from BMW - or if it carries some sort of markup.

In the rest of the world, you certainly can. In the US we're usually SOL when it comes to some of the more esoteric options.

Overall, I think the 1M will be an incredible car but I'm a bit dissapointed that it is 1/2" taller than the 135i.

I looked up the stock 135i and M3 tires on Tirerack.com the diameters are

135i
F: 215/40R18 diameter = 24.8"
R: 245/35R18 diameter = 25.0"

M3
F: 245/35ZR19 diameter = 25.8"
R: 265/35ZR19 diameter = 26.3"

So the 1M tire diameter, assuming it uses the the same tires as the M3, is 1"+ larger than the 135i tire diameter.

The increase in radius coincidentally (?) matches the difference in height. Of course not all things are equal (suspension different, wheel width has small affect on tire diameter, etc).

Anyway, I will eventually consider lowering the 1M a little if some good prings are offered and there is enough clearance.

The model specs of the two cars ( 135 and 1M ) show the 1M is 1/2 " taller? I do agree that the preproduction cars I saw looked like a slight drop in ride height would make it go from "badass" to "SICK".

According to the "Data" section of the sticky...

Height (mm) = 1420 for the 1M, and 1408 for the 135i.

Also, just going from appearance, the 1M seems to have more rake. M3Adjustor, did it look that way in person?

Anyone know where I can download the footage from? I'd like to edit a promo video for my portfolio.

That's very possible now that you mention it, really kinda tough to tell with the rear quarters adding the appearance of more rake as well.

As far as the height of the 1m vs a 135, that's not something i noticed, just really noticed that the 1m had too much gap between the tires and fender. We were cautioned that final spring rates/suspension setup had not yet been determined.

Can someone please confirm that the 6 speed and clutch are the same as the 135i and Z4is?

I thought they were using them from the M3?

Per Bimmerfile, http://www.bimmerfile.com/2011/01/12...ission-brakes/ , the 6 speed is from 135i. The clutch is from 335is.

Are you sure this is right? In the recent technical briefing released by M-Power they said:

"The compact six-speed transmission with dry sump lubrication is a new development and has a weight of just 43 kg – much lighter than similar gearboxes."

"Because the drive shaft is also a new part, every ing is specifically tailored to the requirements of the BMW Series 1 M Coupé in this combination, starting from the flange of the crank shaft."


I took this to mean that it was a brand new transmission, not the 135i transmission. Assumed it was developed for the upcoming M3 because they could never cost justify a new transmission for the 1M.

It is a new transmission. Bimmerfile went on to say that they were initially incorrect.
