Actually, is that a carbon hood? If you pause the video at 3:44 it does look like a dark/black/cf hood on the valencia model.

Yes. Last name also embroidered. I am sure the jackets and vests will be prized possessions. I was told they are very nice jackets.

Door frames to add torsional rigidity and so you can have manual windows.

Pretty quiet around here for such a big marketing event. I am surprised BMW didn't do a better job of coordinating with the participants to release their personal reviews of the test drive with the m-power.com video.

The car looks great. The limited comments from the participants seem to allay fears about weak exhaust note, poor throttle response and power drop off beyond 5500 rpm.

I suspect the 1M will (mostly) fulfill our expectations. But BMW's marketing campaign is starting to do more harm than good for this badass little car.

Disappointed that we haven't read a full review from one of the participants yet.

You really expected them to design a whole new door?

The entire car was revealed to the participants. Maybe one of them can get in touch with one of the photochop experts and get it nailed down.
