TBH, all 3 colour options look great and bring out different points in the 1M.... I'd be happy with any.... BSM is a nightmare to maintain though, but amazing in the above shots.

AW is very pure and clean, VO is loud and boisterous, BSM s sleeper and a weapon... All sum up the 1M

I believe AW accounts for over 50%... BSM must be rarest

Hi, new owner here.

I am from a JDM background with previous cars like Evo 9, 200SX, MR2, Integra...my first car was a e36 318i though.

I was looking at 981 Cayman S and Boxster S. They look so sexy but after a brief ride in one I lost interest as the rush in acceleration was not there. For that kind of money I want something can make me sweat and respect the car.

I was also looking at E92 M3s but find them a tad slow in acceleration at low speed and doesn't look as distinctive as the 1M so lord and behold, I manage to find a lo mileage VO at Audi Sydney. It was love at first sight and I put in a deposit straight away and loving her since.

Welcome to the Aus 1Ms scene. Looking forward to see some pics and meeting up one day at a meet.

Thanks 1MOz and Zuzu...I followed some of your posts and you guys have

My car is a 2012 built model with 2Y warranty left...thinking of modding it but concern about the warranty thing...

Out of interest do you guys find a noticeable different in straight line acceleration with just a ECU flash (ie Cobb/Evolve R..) and no FMIC or you need a FMIC to make a noticeable difference?

I had a look at offered by AC Schnitzer and Hartge and their ECU mod (rated at around 400hp) is several thousands (no FMIC required) which is very expensive for a piggy back solution. But they do offer Engine/Drivetrain warranty though.

Had some time. So I went back 12 months of posts.
Added elias 11 and Z1M

Pretty sure quite a number have moved on.

Add me to the list. AW 1M in Sydney.

Came from an '09 135i AW. I had FBO + JB4, BMWP gear and a lot of other stuff, all done by myself - I'm a mechanic by trade. The 1M isn't as quick (just yet) but you can just feel that it's in a different league. Can't wait to start modding her too!

Look forward to being a part of the exclusive Oz 1M group on this great forum!
