Unhappy First BMW 1M Wreck = First 1M Delivered In Korea [of only 80 total] :(

It was bound to happen, but we didn't expect to see a 1M accident this soon. This 1 of only 80 BMW 1M coupes total (and first delivered in country) for the Korean market was recently involved in an accident. What's worse is the car belongs to 1addicts member eztonyc (his photos)

The accident was due to another car running a red light, unfortunately. The damage will require some moderate bodywork, but it hopefully does not have any substantial frame damage. With worldwide 1M production numbers being only in the low thousands at most, it would be a real shame to lose one to 1M heaven so early.

To be fair we have no idea what happened. The 1M driver might not have been at fault and someone might have driven into him?

No surprise that the first 1M wreck was in Korea. After living there for two years, you are literally playing roulette every time you get behind the wheel. And another proven fact about Korea is that rain = rear end fest. Saw it all the time...

Very sad... Hope he's okay.

I'm curious to see what happens with the repair. I suppose that while production is limited, parts are readily available given its frankenstein-esque creation.

No kidding there. More times than not, I just took the bus or grabbed a cab.

That sucks. Does the 1M not come with shadow line window trim?
