Hi from a new 1M owner

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Hi this is my first 1M coupe. I have been driving the BMW M3 CSL for over 8 years and with the prices on the up here in the uk i sold it

I was goint to buy the new M3 but prices are dropping fast on them and with owning 3 CSLs over the last 8 years i dont fancy losing a lot of cash on a car

The car i bought is a 1M VO 2 Owners 13,000 miles with bmw warranty and service pack till 8/2016

here is the new car




I am looking at putting carbon on the dash round the heater radio and the gear trims orderd the standard parts today.

I will post a how to make carbon parts when i get the parts.

I was looking at the Cobb tuning unit are these any good ?

The CSL is a special car it feels light and nimble and so special with all the carbon trim.

The engine noise is so fantastic it sounds like the e30 touring cars from the 80s.

the 1M is more skippy than the csl on the road over bumps this will be the shorter wheel base, I do miss the flappy paddles and blip on the downshift
but the 1M has heated seats a must here in scotland

This was my Old CSL



My CSL at the Ring

Cobb very popular with good "standard" maps and highly amenable to a custom tune.

ha, small world, he's getting big time now I guess...internationally known

I am actually going to have him do more on the car, doors, trunk, and finish the roof...he's to dang busy at the moment... I think he sent me a pic of your car when you got it. It was a wise purchase
