• 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.

        It isn't about the N54 for me, it is about the M division selling out.
