First Alpine White 1M Delivered on 1addicts!

Hi guys !

I'm the lucky guy who was one of the firsts to ride a 1M. I posted my impressions and photos there : http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=510127

Then I took delievery of MY Alpine White 1M

I owned a 135i for a few months before this so I can already say that this 1M is not a super 135i but really a baby ///M !

But it is just 700km, I have to ride another 1300 to be able to talk about the whole potential of the car....

But first, enjoy a first piece of pictures

prettiest color HANDS DOWN.

I own an AW 135i and have driven the 1er in black and I think the black just hides all the beautiful curves in the car. The white goes a lot better with everything including these weird headlights haha

congrats on the purchase and post some videos of that beast accelerating, curious to see how different it is from a 135

Yup, some nice close-ups.

Now stop the stupid 'this is the best color' debate. There's other threads for this, and even more important: beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Are the seats different in feel and grip compared to the 135i sport seats?
I can't tell from the pics.

Looks very sweet!
A proper aggressive look without being gaudy.

No, these are exactly the same, excpet the orange stitching and logos "/ / / M " on the headrest

Some say they don't offer enough lateral support for such a sports car (0.97 G cornering!!) but as you know, you can adjust the seat to larger and personally I think that's enough .

I saw pictures of 1M prototypes with M3 seats but they finally chose those of the 135i. I do not know why ...

What does this mean? I haven't seen the 135 seats (we have a 335i w/sport option). Are 135 sport seats similar/better/worse than 335i sport seats?

Well, you can forget all that. The new car is fitted with a turbocharged straight six. Turbocharging? In an M car? That’s like putting gravy on an ice cream.

Exactly the same (1er sport seats /3er sport seats/1M seats are all the same)

I tried to say "you can set the width of the seat "

Sensational!! My AW 1M is on the ship and I can't wait. Will have to to try and match you with a photo in front of the Sydney Opera House.
