Quite possibly the most important statement I've read so far:

"Despite the inclusion of turbochargers, the muscular properties of the engine don't trail off beyond 4,500 rpm — the point where peak torque begins to subside. If anything, it continues to feel stronger the closer you run it to the 7,000-rpm cutout. Revs rise in an urgent fashion, but without any lag."

Thanks Mark, sounds very much like the review I've just read in the latest edition of Autocar.

Certainly Not Perfect
One area where the 2011 BMW 1 Series M lags the M3 is throttle response. The N54 straight-6 doesn't deliver the razor-sharp reactions you get in the M3. Power delivery is another issue.
I would have thought that the engaging of M-Mode (M Button) would have helped this. This was the only negative thing they really reflected on.

Those Torque figures always put a big on my face!
