So you got the street legal version, I guess. Where will you store the current stock exhaust (quite long) ? Anyway, don't get rid of it, it might be useful as spare if your exhaust system gets damaged (1M gets rear ended, tips scratched on curbs, etc.). Or will the stock exhaust inevitably be damaged during the removal process ?

Can we actually still order the 1M in Belgium? With the 'biv-overgangsregel' one might as well buy a new one in stead of second-hand.

  • However, another source claims BMW Belux (September 2011) has quoted the figure of 214 1M cars (of which 80 had already been ordered, or even delivered, by September 2011), with the following breakdown (Belgium + Luxembourg) (http://www.bimmerboard.be/forum/inde...5092#msg845092):
    • AW: 78 (78/214 = 36.45%)
    • BSM: 63 (63/214 = 29.44%)
    • VO: 73 (73/214 = 34.11%)

na negen maanden kan ik maar 1 ding concluderen: wat een geweldige auto!!!!

'k hou dan ook van koppel v/d motor, de sound van de 6L, het directe stuur en de adquate remmen,
na de akra en luchtfilter te vervangen lijkt hij ook "vrijer te ademenen"
zalig gewoonweg
kleppen open is "teveel johnny-sound" maar soms toch wel eens leuk
kleppen dichti is perfect
