1M on Petrolicious

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Long before Adrian Miles could go for a drive on the Angeles Crest Highway on a whim with a BMW 1M, he and his brother were developing an affinity for cars by playing with the tools and police-issue Impalas in their grandpa’s garage in Philadelphia. He taught them how to appreciate automobiles and all manner of mechanical objects (radios in the Miles’ household were a frequent target of curious dismantling), and later on in school, a teacher and counselor with an E30 and E21 3-Series steered Adrian towards BMWs in particular.

Adrian appreciates whatever marque or style you’re into, but what fits him best are BMWs that channel the brand’s early sporting efforts. The rare 1M is already rightly considered a modern classic, in large part because it gets back to the roots of M Power. It’s a classic recipe made with modern ingredients. Between faster paced canyon and Crest drives, dropping the kids off at school, and road trips, Adrian is smitten with the car’s performance and demeanor as-is. The subtle pieces of of carbon fiber add some aggression to the aesthetics, and the less subtle stripes are a well adapted graphical homage to BMW’s early Motorsport days and the 2002 Turbo in particular.

I don't if anyone here is familiar with the sim Assetto Corsa but a full 900 km2 highly detailed mod of these exact LA canyons released just two days ago and it is incredible. To top that off the game also has a 1M, along with a heavily modified version of it with 400+ hp and suspension mods. I was literally just ripping down these same mountains, in the same car last night with friends, from the comfort of my home on the east cost.

Here's a nice video of it: https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=...me_continue=67

Sorry for the off topic, it's just too much of a coincidence to not say it!

Well done Sir! Love the car and that you paid homage to the 2002!

If the owner featured is on here, you did a great job presenting the car, the reasons why it is special, being an enthusiast, and why the car speaks to you.

As a subscriber to the channel, not all the owners make the same impression, IMVHO.

Emotional value of all those thrills and great memories when spending some smokin' hot seat time behind the wheel, that feeling of being alive 'n kicking; boy-grin, giggles & all that; memories that you can cherish and treasure forever. I like that spirit.

Some people own a high performance car. Some people own *and* enjoy a high performance car.
