Karmic, DON'T fall for his BS.

People who talk up the virtues of E92's M's with a S/C for years then go buy an Audi (whist hanging around here adding tiresome and old one liners) have little cred, sorry, no cred.

skidz makes a good point.

BMW is diluting their halo brand by sticking M badges on just about everything in their range. It takes away from the rarity and the prestige of driving an M car.

Audi and MB do this to a certain extent too but BMW is really taking it to the next level.

A bit off topic too but I agree. I went to look at the new 4 series and they had these M badges on the front fender. Ugh. A bit OTT. The E82 135 was good in terms of a badging. I'm not a fan of the M135i's M badge. And they had the LCI 5er there. Again with the front fender M badge. Looks out of place...

AMG is getting up there with badges too. Audi have been doing it with S-line. I guess they're all copying each other hehe

A historical fact skid, I buy smart then turn them over when I want or need to.

Having had two 1Ms I would have thought that says a lot about how good the car was

Dump is an interesting choice of words too, I dumped a Porsche (to buy the 1M) and an M3, all in the past two years haha

Anyways, see you over at OZAudi.

so you have been talking up the 1m for years and now you 'turned em over' because you either wanted to or needed to. so by your logic that means you have no 'cred' or that you changed your mind

or is this a classic fanboi response to someone with a different opinion

In any case i am sure we can agree they are only nuts n bolts, so no need to get ya panties in a bunch, enjoy

ps for the record an M3 with a SC is an awesome piece of kit, just not for me.

See that's where you're going wrong. You're forgetting all about the steering wheel!

M135i & M235i are for non car enthusiast who wants an M badge.

1M, M3/M4 are for car enthusiast who wants the M experience.

Nothing wrong with multiple lines of product targeting different groups of customers.

I don't feel that the M badge is diluted in anyway. An M car still drives like an M car and giving the driver all the thrills is all it matters.

Had two days in an Audi R8 (V8) couldn't wait to get back into my 135i/Cayman S. AWD is like the kiss of death for a performance car. A well kept secondhand Cayman/Boxter S with a few tasteful mods is the way to go. Sorry off topic.

So lets say I take an i-series car and retrofit every single M component onto it from the M version (ala 135 / 1M), what would that make the car?

Tii? FrankensteiM?

Before buying my 135i, I spent 4 months looking for a relatively unmolested, low mileage E46 M3 in Sydney (6sp). None to be had for love or money.
