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.

(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.

Favorite 1M Picture, Photographer Found

about 8 years ago I took my AW 1M to Cars and Coffee Irvine, CA as I did many times. Cars and Coffee Irvine closed down and few years after that I did a search for BMW 1M Cars and Coffee Irvine because I was looking for a picture of the first large 1M meet there. To my shock and surprise, I came up with these two photos that someone took of my car while I was walking around. I thought the pictures were outstanding so I kept a low-res copy of them. A few years after that this thread started including the photo competition. Since I didn't take the photos, I reached out to the photographer that owned the site and asked for permission to enter the pictures. The photographer's name is Bernardo Macouzet but I didn't hear back so I never submitted them. Well today, 3 years later, I received an email from Mr. Macouzet apologizing since he had moved and forgotten about that email address. He was kind enough to share the hi-res images with me and now 3 years to late for the contest, but I wanted to share these two lovely photos of my 1M in its infancy. Thank you Mr. Macouzet for the lovely photos.

It was just a tinted ppf. Didn't change the headlights at all.
