1M in Boston

Taken this weekend. I had a great time playing with the angles, reflections and light as the sun kept going in and out of the clouds. Makes me want to a) drive more and b) take more photos!

My all time favorite 1M photo. Real life with a real car. Winter wheels/tires. Dirty. NYC. I was apartment shopping for the family that day. Couldn't ask for anything more out of a true documentation of how the 1M has been a part of our lives. A companion...

Because it was too costly for them to create the fender press with a cut-out. Since it was a limited production run, they skipped it.

He clarified that these front fender areas that now suggest the vents, originally were meant to have real functional vents. They'd be even bigger than the ~2cm they are now. (Thus cutting them open in the shape they are now would apparently not provide much aerodynamic benefit, i.e. release significant wheel well air pressure). However they couldn't get the fender sheet stamping molds accurate enough within the allotted time/budget. Particularly the two fenders sides exactly mirroring each other in shape proved too hard to achieve with functional vents. Pity, but I do respect that they either do it right or not at all."

"[T]hey were tight on a budget plus they were really running out of time. So only one interior color was approved. Same went for some of the other "things" M wanted to do to the car. Like functional vents in the front fenders (the crease), they wanted to produce a carbon fiber roof, but they were running out of time. So in the end their hands were tied by time and budget."

This render shows the 1M with functional side vents and CF roof (as was initially intended but did not come to fruition due to tight time and budget constraints):

More renders of the functional side vents:

Curious why the M2 didn't end up with functional side vents given they probably had a lot more time for development.

Clean for at least 48 hrs...

Did a quick wash on the weekend and applied some Bead Maker, soooo happy with how it looks.
