so you're telling me that sportec did not copy the "turbo" logo from the bmw 2002 turbo?? according to the following picture it looks pretty identical to me:



now i could be wrong about this, but as far as i know the bmw 2002 turbo was the first european production car with a turbo and was therefore released before the porsche 911 turbo... but thats just me.

^^I bet that "geezer" bought that 2002 Turbo when it was new!


And Btw... that Geezer looks just fine behind the wheel of that 2002 Turbo driving around Nürburgring's fahrerlager (paddock)!!!
The pink building is the Dorint Hotel at the 'Ring and the red gas station(Mundorf Tank) is the paddock gas pumps at the track.

If he did, giant props to him for keeping it in pristine condition.

Ok, thanks for that, I thought Porsche had it first? ...same used by Saab from memory.
Now days IMO it looks dumb putting 'turbo' on a car esp in reverse. Lame!

Funny thing about stripes and decals. I think it's what you become familiar with and eventually associate with the car. I wonder if at the time the 2002 Turbo was released the stickers looked quite gauche but now look right at home on that car. Bit like a Porsche Carrera; the early models look right with the large script along the bottom of the doors but it just seems to look pretentious on a modern Porsche.

So... Saturday I was over at the BMW Welt for the DTM 2013 show and look what I saw in the underground parking garage! Sometimes I can not believe my luck!!


I can tell you this car IS a 135i with the 1M body parts. I think the dead giveaway is the 135i mirrors and the DCT trans! And the white car had a VO friend too...

And also not featuring the 1M dashboard and alcantara with red stitching ...and the license plate says M1 135.

But to know for sure what you're actually dealing with when looking from outside: check for the diff. Without that (dog's) dangly bit hanging between the wheels, it ain't no 1M 1er.

No Martini, no party - No M diff, no 1M.

Saw this picture in some Bimmerfest East 2013 photos (didn't see it at the show):



The car has Maryland tags. Anyone on here? Also, I am unsure if its a real 1M.
