Congratulations to the participants of this event.

Observations...

- a set of Eibach springs and spacers will make this 1M look like a mean, freaking bulldog.
- BMW should leave that "color-coded eyebrows" masking in the headlights for production. The 1-Series headlights shape is a disgrace.

Do I see white-illuminated gauges on the instrument panel? If so, very nice.

Awesome.

Great job to everyone involved. BMW have done great work getting this together in such a short time!

Where do I sign?

Notice orange stitching in headrest and no carbon fibre roof!

I'm not sure what would've been better - getting to go on that trip or the birth of my children! (well the children would still have been a little bit better, but this would have been close)

Notice how they edit only what they want you to hear......pulls to redline, throttle response, engine sound. I hope true, honest commentary will be allowed soon from all that were there. No more massaged and edited stuff from journalists and non disclosure protected comments from invitees.

Sucks that is was wet and cold.

As we saw from the production car (at the end of the video), they did have something under the black eyebrows......LED line.

I will give a full report to everyone, but I have to unpack first! The one with 14 hr flight is me.
It was raining very heavily, but the car remained very stable with >170km/hr

I meant that the whole headlight shape should be different, more resembling that mask there.

I believe so. Also note the climate controls, and ~200kmph speed

?? Expect the speedo to go to at least 250...probably more.

One participant hit 220-230 on the test track.

I love how that last video there shows the manual air conditioning controls on the prototype. I know these will not probably be on the production units, but how cool would it be to be able to still by a totally stripped out M-car?
