What's with all that carbon roof fanatism ?
You guys realise that's just plain marketing ? You're all brainwashed by BMW.

I'm not debating that CF roof might be a few pounds lighter than standard metal roof.
But do you really think this will make you faster in your lap times ? Yeah, milliseconds.

If there would be a real benefit, all other (sport)car makers would be all over it. Like the double cluth for example. And the new M5 doesn't seem to have CF roof either.

PS: I'm also not debating that CF roof can 'look sexy' depending on your car's exterior color. But you can solve that with a wrap. Much cheaper.

Originally, I was all on blue, until I got my VO and saw it in person, I've made my peace with the lack of blue
So as of right now:

1) Carbon roof or lower roof line
2) Dedicated M seats, or just reuse some past ones (I LOVE the e36 seats with the tri-colored stripes diagonal on the corner)

You are referring to the "vader" M seats, which I consider to be the best and last decent M seat!

I don't own a 1M but the seats are the most obvious weak point.

DCT option would have been good.

And a delete rear seats option would have been perfect.

If I was being idealistic, I really think Sat-Nav and Premium sound should be standard on all M cars with the option to delete

D@!#$t I didn't need to see that.

My desire would of course simply been blue.

I wish it was made 2-3 years ago when the 1coupe first came out... So that I could buy one and not be outdated so quickly.

Cosmetics and aesthetics aside, the big advantage of the CF roof is not just its weight savings, but WHERE these weight savings are achieved! You are shaving off precious weight off the highest point in the car, achieving a much lower center of gravity, and as such, superior handling dynamics.

It is one thing to shave 50lbs from not having a spare tire in the trunk, it it totally another to shave it off the highest point in the car (while still keeping the perfect 50-50 weight distribution).

So yeah, CF roof would be my top choice for seeing it as stock from the factory, but we all know it could not be achieved given the constraints.

A better/sportier interior would be next on the list but the BMW Performance seats would solve that.

The real benefit of a carbon fiber roof can be seen on the track because weight is taken from the highest point of the car thus improving the lower center of gravity. This helps in cornering the car at speed plus it helps improve acceleration times as well as braking.

+ 1 It's hard to believe it now because the 1M is perfect answer for todays market but cars keep getting better. The current 1M has the edge over the current M3 but I'm sure the new M3 will be a monster with an even better twin turbo engine than the N54. Also the M2 has to be better than the 1M, it's just the way it is. Manufacturers are always moving forward. If I had to spend 110k today I'd buy the 1M. If I was spending 160k+ I'd take the GTR. Btw, this is Australian pricing for anyone else reading! Richard, I still think we were pretty lucky to get the current 1M engine in our 135i's
