My New (to me) 1M.

Hi folks. Pointed over to this site by Jaw_F340 so thought I'd sign up and get involved.

Just picked up my Alpine White 1M on Saturday just passed and I'm loving it. Can't stop driving it and finding more excuses by the day in order to do so, haha.

I've only ever had modified Mini's for the past 5 years and I've wanted an M car ever since I got a ride in an E46 M3 some 10 years ago. To say I'm happy with the new car is an understatement! I'm looking to modify the 1 with a set of KW coilovers and some evolve goodies but I'll wait until the winter has passed.

Some quick pictures of the car on collection.







Cheers
Ryan.

Congratulations and welcome to the fold

Looks like your dealer had a VO for sale as well. There seem to be more 1Ms for resale in the UK than the US.

Absolutely Stunning

As a guy who himself went from Mini's (03 MCS and 08 MCS - Both Chili Red on white), I'd like to say welcome to the family.

I am 100% certain you will not be disappointed... unless of course you attempt to drive your car in the snow.

Congrats on the car, it looks fantastic.

The EvolveR tune is great and improves on what's already a fantastic package.

Cheers folks! Picked it up from Eastern M Power in Edinburgh. Awesome garage with a fair selection of M cars! The Orange one came in around the same time as mine and both were sold within the week.

Nice one, I love the mini's like. Thankfully this 1 came with a full set of summer & winter tyres, just got the winters on the other day and impressed!

Decent! Aye will have to keep an eye out for you. Looking to do a few trackdays and a spa/ring weekend but first I need to learn how to steer from the rear properly, first rwd. Caught me out a few times in the black ice!

Willox and Evo's rings a bell haha. Pretty sure you were at a trackday last year I was at in an R26R, if it's you then you are some pilot!

Evolve and their products are spot on. Had a few dealings with Imran in the past for Mini related goods and no complaints
