So far I have put 50 miles on the car, and so far the only complaint I have is that I have to get out of the car to eat, sleep, and work 

The clutch feels so amazing, my previous car was a tuned STI. and ever since I sold that car I had felt as though it would be difficult to find another car that felt so connected. BMW has found a way to deliver that same ultra hyper responsive feel without the bone jarring ride.

The suspension is very responsive, especially to turn in, yet is extremely comfortable on the road. Mind you, we are talking the pothole ridden streets of NJ. FTL! LOL.

The only complaint I might say I have is the factory installed iPod connector, which the placed the USB and AUX port under the armrest. My only issue is that my iPod cable is just coiled and laying all over under my arm rest and hanging in between my seat. I think the glove box is much more desirable of a location. But nothing that will keep me up at night, her ass is doing a good job at that lol. 

Bahahaha, great comment. Please tell me that video was shot from a C63, I couldn't tell for sure if it had the bulge on the hood. If so that would make an awesome car set, 1 M and C63

Talking OK.....Here we go, from the initial pick up to the close of the night

I want to give Paul Miller two thumbs up, especially my man Jerzy Kutyla, anyone interested in being treated right, given the right information, and no hassle, go see him.

We caught the car in detail:










From there it got the special treatment and was put in its own garage, almost like a display case hahaha:














Walter is thinking, "The M Badge is calling me back, AGAIN!"




My favorite picture of the VOP, under direct lighting or sunlight, this is the effect, absolutely amazing

"M" is calling me back, but I dont think an M3 would do it for me after seeing the 1M. BMW needs to allow an LSB 1M.

Probably the absolute first things are:

Black Kidney Grilles
BMW Performance M3 Carbon Fiber Mirror Caps

From there:

Coilover Setup with Camber Plates (maybe a V1 or V2)
Exhaust System (Meisterschaft or Akrapovic)


I have one interior mod I am going to look into, but I'm keeping that one up my sleeve haha

1) Congrats, You make me so anxious to get my own

2) Thats a good pair of cars

3) I'm jealous...

4) I'd love to hear that c63 rip... the one's I've seen in person were surprisingly driven by older ladies... hot, but too gentle with the car

5) How do you feel about that exhaust on the 1M? Really curious about that, videos never really capture the sounds

The exhaust definitely has some throat to it, I would compare it to the E46 M3 with maybe a little less raspiness. If that makes any god damn sense what-so-ever LOL

No way the V8 in that Benz sounds anything like the E46 M3.. It sounds FAR better... Was at a track weekend two weeks ago and the best sounding cars were a C63 and a vette with aftermarket exhaust...

Haha I'm pretty sure he was comparing the 1M to the e46 m3.

I'd love to see those videos of them both
