You know, I was just thinking that it had been a little dry in the new info department for a little while now....

We need some more testing videos or something.

My latest source told me that BMW M still decided to stop building the M1 (E82) and focus and invest the money in the next M1 (F22).

Let's not debate the existance of the car AGAIN....

I think the point of this thread was to entice SCOTT to give us something else to chew on for a few days.

So, you need a fix? I don't know if this has been posted before, but got it from another forum:

Originally posted by Scott27

Seen the car in it's finished production prototype stage late this afternoon. and some new facts , The output cut-off stops at 360PS so look below 360 to estimate the final PS figure,

The Personalisation options will not feature with this generation as it is too late in the cycle to do so, but the next generation 1er will receive the personalisation options. BMW will counter such options with a final ltd run of a GTS M1. Although the standard car will receive usual M appendages such as Carbon Fibre Roof etc.

Car looks mean , standard 5 spoke alloys , or with optional Competition Wheels. The exhaust sound is like a high performance bike , very raspy. On a similar level as the S1000RR Superbike.
When the quad-piped cars hit the track you will be able to hear the full output as sound and exhaust tuning is moving into the forefront of development now.

The "Production" car will debut in mid-late December - the thinking is... Give the consumer a very special Christmas gift.
The car will go on sale in Europe in Spring 2011 and be available in North America for early summer.

A drive in a prototype is only a few days away , but as a 135i owner I am told that it is not just a faster 135i , it leaves the 135i behind in everything where the 135i succeeds.

The key difference is to distance this car as a stand alone model and distinguish it from the current model so it allows the next generation 1er Sporthatch space to integrate itself.

I need a fix, too. Glad someone else is as frenetic as I am.

Levi - I hope you're pulling our chains.

Thought so... but I could see it happening too. It's not as if BMW would lose much money if they did pull out now. Not much money has been spent on R&D, aside from the track time.

Well, due to the smaller size of 1er compared to the 3er, it may cost a little bit less in the production materials; but the 1 series is not mechanically or electronically simpler than the 3 series, therefore the M division still need to spend equally amount of human resource and equipment to research/develop the corresponding parts.

I would rather they spend equally effort/sources for the M version of 1er, just like how they make normal 3er into M3, or normal 5er into M5.
