    • BMW E82 1M production run to last only 1 year, through 2011

      We knew the 1M would have a short lifespan we just did not think it would be quite this short. The F20 1 series is around the corner and has been spotted testing all over the place. The 1M is going to be out of production by December of this year. BMWNA M brand manager Matt Russel told the Detroit Bureau the 1M “will be a one-year car." We expect BMW to roll out an M model for the next generation F20 1 series much faster than for the E82 since there no longer is a stigma about a "cheap" M and BMW learned that they could make fast money selling the M badge.

        They said this from the beginning, "the 1M will be a limited production"

        Yea ok, so check this out.

        BMW Hype's this car like they have a 12 inch cock. They show 1 inch of it at a time, finally they release the $#@! and it's nothing but a modded 135 with M3 bits and a flash. Cool story.

        Now they are saying that this 12 inch cock is only going to be out for one year? What happened to the hype, I thought this car was supposed to be THE $#@!?




        So, I therefore dub thee:
































        $#@!ING FAIL

        Exactly. I think bmw said they will produce 1000 units. How many will make it to the US? Only time you will see one of these is at a bmw meet/show.

        True, this is extremely limited.

        No need to find it when you can just get a 135 and do the same for less money.

        Lets say it made 330whp (because it was under-rated) naturally aspirated with a modified N52 running to 8,000RPM somehow.

        Would you still say it's a "fail"?

        Yes it would be fail because it would just be another E46, we want to see evolution.

        Like DBFIU said, it would just be an E46 M3 then.

        Lol well WTF do y'all want? The E46 M3 was a "Real" M car, right?

        I'm getting the one allocation in Corpus, unless my salesman is a lying piece of $#@!. Click here to enlarge

        It will be on our Mustang dyno and simulated 1/4 mile right after break-in.

        It would be faster than the E46, just like it is now.

        One of the best of all time.

        All I wanted was at the very least a motor that differentiated itself from what was offered in non-M's. This is the weakest job by BMW on an M motor in history. It isn't even an M motor, that is the whole problem, cutting corners.

        You are getting a 1M? For sure? If so, PM me although I need an owner in California for something special and a good deal for that owner.

        I agree that it is not an M motor. It is an "M tuned" motor. They SHOULD HAVE changed the hardware, like with the X5/6 Ms. But the car as a whole I think could still be considered an "M car".

        Either way I'm gonna have a blast with it, daily. Autocross/Track days will just be icing on the cake.

        Exactly and this pisses me off beyond belief and it pisses me off even more that other people aren't as pissed off.

        I'm not so pissed off because I happen to really like the N54. Plus, there seems to be some very powerful options in the near future for that motor. If not, it's just some extra fab time for me. Click here to enlarge
