Well, today at the Geneva Auto Show Inside Line has once again confirmed from a source inside BMW that the M version of the 1 Series will not happen. Got that people? It will not happen.

"If we do something, it'll be a 135is like we've done with the Z4 and the 3 Series," the source told us with a wink.

So this fall look for BMW to introduce a 135is powered by a more powerful version of the twin-turbo N54 inline six-cylinder and a more aggressively tuned suspension.

That is all."
Wow....well this might explain why no one is seeing anything at Geneva....

What a crock--whoever said we have been "had" looks to be right.....
