"LOL" @ calling a crease a faux vent, reh-tards.

You can clearly see the crease forms a line that works its way down the side of the car.

I believe we can mostly agree: If BMW wanted to put a "vent" in the fenders; I'm more than confident that they would have and it wouldn't need to be subject to question/interpretation. Why you ask? Simply because it would look like a vent and not follow a line down the entire side of the car.

Looks good but the side vent/crease looks a bit weird compared to the rest of the car.

Btw am I the only one who sees the rev. meter and speed-o a little outdated??

Other than that the car looks phenomenal

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

What's with all the nit-picky design criticisms? What is this Project Runway?

The 1M is going to be the lightest, torquiest M ever designed period. Calculate BHP per pound at final release and the BALLS test will tell the story. That 1M is tight!!

I own an 2011 M3 with ZCP and let me tell you something... If I didn't have a wife and kids to consider in what I drive, I'd consider getting that 1M immediately... well, except that I'd probably miss the V8. The only thing missing will be the grunt of a V8. That would probably keep me in my M3.

Yeah, M3 still rules... one of Europe's last muscle cars.

The white/silver lights on rear cluster suck. Worst thing about the car in my mind.
They had a chance to fix that with LCI ala 5er and 3er but no.

Everything else is

That's good news if these are indeed the same ones.

What a great car! I recently drove the 135I with DCT and it was very impressive. This new 1 series M coupe must be even more fun!

Way to go BMW!!!

I do wish DCT was available though on the M series coupe.

Will this be faster than a M3 on the racetrack?

What do you think about the top crease line and that space between the side marker? Does it look a bit strange to you? Normally I would expect the side marker right along the top crease line.

I'm sure the crease is just a design/engineering solution as a result from needing to widen the fenders. Remember, the 1 series M Coupe was not a big budget project. Some may not like to hear it, but the car was cobbled together quickly and in the most efficient manner. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it's not like the M division had a near blank canvas and a big budget. I think they did an amazing job in the time/budget allotted.

Pretty sure the E93 CONVERTIBLE M3 does NOT have a Competition Package.... what am I missing here?

+1 yikes. that same seats as 135i?? and 3 color choices would only have me take one at near invoice. I understand that probably won't be an option and thats fine too.

This car will wear quickly with people that buy them based on above things I believe and them leaving the halo M3 untouched IMO with things like that and engine difference.

I would be waiting for these with popping up on ebay with 2k miles, but those 3 color options just don't cut it.
