For some reason, the shots of the 1M in this vid make it look even better than any of the official shots. Good stance, and the power is obvious!

Anyone think that car has orange front turn signals in place (US market car), or just the way the video looks with the blur?....

Ha! It looks like this was the shoot that spawned these wallpapers:

Looks like the background was 'shopped it in for that entire set.

Can't get over how high this car sits off the ground....WHY????

I'm saving my coin for something that sits lower from the factory. Are you listening BMW?

I am the biggest BMW fan I know and am leaning Audi, Porsche or corvette for my next purchase....

Lol at making buying decisions without seeing or driving the car in person. And.. apparently you must not know many BMW fans if you feel you are the biggest BMW fan you know, yet you are completely turned off of a car because of the ride height you see watching a video ???

just awesome!!

This is the kind of action I was hoping to see in the stock footage.

What stands out to me is just how quick this thing is from standstill. It just looks absolutely sick.

We dont film US Market cars unless the car is assemble in the US ie "X".
The reflection is one that comes with all 1er models which is visible from a distance.
BMW North America will film the car for their market when it arrives on their shores before official launch.

in order to comply with your highway legislations BMW has to equip all US models with side reflectors to comply with these legislations.

We used US headlights because the EU ones haven't been available in August yet. Pictures were retouched afterwards.

BTW: the car seen in the video stands a bit higher than today's 1 Series M Coupés. It hadn't the final (further optimized) chassis set-up yet.
