Cool BMW 1 Series M Coupe VIDEO - First Extensive Sights, Sounds, and On-Track Footage

Featured on 1addicts Homepage

We bring you the first extensive video footage of the 1M coupe, in over 11 unedited minutes of the newest M car, including footage of start up, acceleration, revving, handling, and track footage. A nice bonus is footage of the 1M coupe running on the track with its spiritual forefather - the E30 M3.

good stuff, esp the track portions.

Would have been nice to see them toss it a bit more.

Wow, Love your meter. I'm at about the same place on the scale as you are too.
Cool vid, need to hear more exhaust, engine etc.

Waiting for F32 M3. If I get ansty this will be my buy to tide me over.

It's just too small, I understand it's an M and M means business performance wise, but you gotta impress the bystandard observer as well. This car will only impress the driver, passengers, and people who know BMW backwards and forwards. 1-series is not eye candy, 3-5-7-Z are. No offense to 1 owners, I mean it's a BMW so you didn't lose out or anything, but my opinion is the nose is too big (not too big a deal, however).

I think BMW did a great job, but the series is not for me. F32 M3 or F30 turbo diesel.

I really don't find the white things above the angel eyes appealing. I feel BMW is trying to base it off of what AUDI is doing and what is working and it really clashes.

If youre not a driver kind of guy this car is not for you. The lardy ass M3 is a much better car to show around.

1M needs a better suspension a little lower on its wheels, some race brake pads and some fuel and all you see is smoke comming from the rear tires, brake dust slamming out of the front wheels and 2 red glowing turbo s under the hood. And a smile from ear to ear comming from my face till the turbo s break down Then you can read my thoughts ----> why is there not a 8500 non turbo screamer in this car.

That was a fun watch. The exhaust seems a little on the conservative side... needs more cowbell!

Best kind of footage IMO to tell how the car really sounds and looks, without fancy editing and production which may add sound or visuals.

Nice vid

This car is an ideal platform to start the Modding. All the things people say this is missing can easily be done aftermarket. keep an eye out for tuners and Mod addicts...you will be blown away by the night and day difference.

Someone start modding already!!
