UK Pistonheads review comes to an end

So after an all-too-brief time with the 1M, the collected wisdom of two tame PHers (and lots more 'wild' ones) and some extremely bad false beards (we mean natural hair growth) in an attempt to mark the passage of time, what do we think?

The face of a man looking forward to a shave...Is it a proper M car? Nearly. It's certainly a fantastic performance car, but it's perhaps not the full-on E30 M3 revival that some might have hoped. But think of it as not a 'proper' fast BMW, kind of like an 'M3 Compact' and you'd be being unkind.

"This is a car I want to take my time getting to know because it feels like it has a deep reserve of talent and character," says Duncan. "It feels like the first of a new breed of M car. It feels contemporary."

We couldn't agree more, Duncan. We just wish ours hadn't gone back to Bracknell in the back of a BMW UK delivery truck so soon...

Hello all, I believe he said, "it's perhaps not the full-on E30 M3 revival that some might have hoped." IMO, a full on revival would be something that weighs less than 3000 lbs with a high revving engine. The 1M is well over 3000 lb with lots of low and mid range power, rip it in any gear kind of beast. That being said, I think we can all agree the 1M is an amazing performance car for the money.
