It won't accentuate the height. People will be too busy looking at those light pipes. If anything, it breaks up the vertical height of the tail light, which makes it sleeker horizontally - exactly the sort of thing you want on this coupe's shape.

I was hoping it was more like 3er LCI or new 5er, get rid of the white/silver line at the bottom.

i wish that one of the testers actually tracked their cars so they could talk about the car from that perspective. i also wish one of the testers had a n54 motor that had a tune, front mount, downpipes, and intake. that way we could see how great this motor happened to be.

after reading most of the threads, I think id prefer a 135i, save the money and get AST's, a LSD, and a tune/intake/downpipes,front mount.

and this is coming from someone who has a deposit on the 1M

I need to test drive it myself a few months later proberly. This 12 person ///Marketing gathering doesn't help much in the decision.
yes... drive it yourself... but by NO means were we edited, scripted (other than perhaps to re-do or say something that was said off camera, so it could be caught ON camera), or told to say only happy things.. There was no " big contract"... just signing that we would allow our likenesses to be used in promotions etc, and of course that we not share details until permission was given to do so... and that has passed. Clearly this has also been indicated by Woland's advocate.... http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=456976

Excited from the initial reviews but for most of us owning the 1M will be more than a weekend. I'd have to wait a year to figure out if that famous n54 problem doesn't rear its ugly head again.

@Those that could see and drive it: What are they sticking in the final car then? Manual seats? Anything special on the interior (besides the stitching)? What did they say about the 19" wheels? Will they be the cars serial wheels? Did they mention something like a competition package? What about the 250km/h restriction?

Thanks!

Peter

Thanks. Had not noticed this thread or seen any of the videos, pictures, or reviews included. Much warranted bump.

I just wanted to bump this thread bc many people don't know some of the interesting things BMW AG did before the launch of the 1M.
