In my opinion they are both iconic cars!

The 1 M coupe ist more rare because of the short time of produktion.

that's not an E92 M3 hood. Those are ActiveE hoods (from the 1-series ActiveE). Oh and the 1M is more iconic anyways
It's the style of the hood, you know the one with the massive power dome to house the amazing s65 v8.. not needed for the n54 unfortunately but good on the gents who wish they had the s65

Aren't most cosmetic mods rather subjective? Personally I like the look of the power bump/bulge or whatever it's called as it adds another visual layer to the aggressive look of the 1M.... After all, going back in car design and history, how many years have cars been produced that had non-functional hood scoops or other "appearance" mods that have zero impact on performance? Does the current M3/M4 need a bump because of that big I6? No, but it looks sweet, so wear it with pride

I suppose...but going out of your way to add a non-functional modification is different than buying a car that comes equipped already with a non-functional mod; it's next level posing

I had a feeling they were BC Forged. Thank you for confirming.

Hi Guys,

first of all apologies for not replying to this topic earlier; unfortunately had some private issues the last couple of months. Secondly I want to thank Richard for this amazing article and the work he put in through the whole Event! I didn't expected it but really happy someone summarized the event and it made it way to the states and some other countries!

I am really glad that the whole 1M event went smooth and received loads of positive feedback from nearly all the participants! It's very unfortunate that some of my buddies from the states and other oversea countries couldn't join; it would have been a blast!

I am also thinking ahead and might go for a third 1M meeting next year and I hope we can beat this years record of 47 1Ms.

I will soon upload all pics onto my FB 1M Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/7888...?ref=bookmarks) and hopefully the Event Video will shortly be ready too. Stay tuned and maybe one or the other could join to next years 1M meeting!

best,
Amar

Awesome, thanks for the update Amar—looking forward to the event video! I would've loved to have come but I'm all the way over on the side of the world in Toronto
