1 M Coupe on the road in Belgium (very rare)

I've seen this 1 M Coupe on the road, which is very rare in Belgium because they're sold out. I think I'm the first in Belgium to get it on tape (in the wild that is).

Just hang around and you'll see a black one soon (mine)

One of the 41 allocated to Belgium, so indeed a rare find. Now that BMW unexpectedly released info about, and pics of, the 2012 1-Series, I assume that the remaining 1M's, if any, will be sold out in no time. My VO will be zooming around in September.

2012 1 Series:

Haha, yeah, it was on the radio. Belgium is pretty up to date when it comes to music.
The American songs are on the radio here about 2 weeks after they air in America, the popular songs that is of course.
I've been to NYC, LA and Vegas in Sept last year and it struck me when I was back home, I was hearing the same music over and over again lol

I'd love to see it in black! It was on my way to Mechelen when I recorded it. Hope to see yours when you get it!

This is the demo car from BMW Belgium. Drove the car last Tuesday in wet conditions, it's a bit of a handful in these conditions
However I was convinced of it's agility and will order myself a black one in the next couple of weeks.

I also drove this car, a few weeks ago at my dealership!! But i don't even know, if if i should stay with VO or to switch back to AW! Even now, when they will release VO for the new 1-Series, which is really bad!!

Maybe, i will put the BMW Performance seats in my 1M, so AW should be the better choice for me??

Indeed, if they would release VO for the next 1-series, that would be bad.
But still, AW and BSM are available on almost any BMW, so that's not a reason to say goodbye to VO.

I'm sorry, might be a stupid question, but what does VO, AW and BSM mean?

For what it's worth, I wrestled with colour decision for weeks... Until I saw my first AW in person last week. Classic BMW motorsport. Locked in AW, can't wait!

Indeed. I just read the AutoGids detailed roadtest of this exact car (same plates). I think it's kinda cool that I got it on video and it is in AutoGids Magazine today.
