South Africa only got 110, 65 in 2011 and then 45 in 2012.

Two awesome things:
1) Booty! Cant help but admire the aggressive lines of the flares and how it all seamless ties into transforming a sedate 1series into this "Bulldog" to paraphase CarJunkie!
2) Back in the day, BMW had this for saying for their adverts, Sheer Driving Pleasure : Don't know another car that invokes that as much as this car does. When you drive it, you feel so in touch and in tune with every little thing the car does and it feels like a scapel in the hands of a surgeon

Two unfortunate things:
1) Not sure if its me, but i went on my first, very very early morning breakfast run yesterday since getting the car in January, and the headlights felt quite inadequate, need to have them adjusted to see if i can see further then 2metres away in the dark!
2) The armrest squels like a pig!!!!!!

Hey, this is easily fixed with the armrest delete! That's one of my favorite E82 mods.

It's a lot per capita if you think about it.
Less than half that Z4Ms. Less than 100 Z4M coupe. Less than 60 B5 RS4. These cars are more rare, have character but for some reason unloved.

I never understood why the M button on M cars makes the throttle jumpier. If anything, it seems like one would want more control, not less, in a track car. I guess it just makes the car “feel” faster when a small press of the throttle launches the car forward, which sells.
Imo, one reason a lot of people crash them is this.
