    Insideline tests the 1M coupe, runs 13.0@107.4 - Specs and Video

    Most of the automotive press has been heaping praise on the new 1M coupe. Insideline is no different although they at least inject a shred of honesty compared to the other reviewers so infatuated they forgot what an M car is supposed to be. Their test numbers also shed serious doubt on the claims Autocar made of the 1M tearing the Cayman R "to shreds." The full specs, details, and review video are below but what struck us was this quote:

    Gripes? There are few. The engine lacks the character of most M cars. Yes, it's powerful and amply responsive and probably telling of the powertrains to come in future M vehicles. Still, this isn't the raw, instant, shrill explosion of sound and revs we've become accustomed to from BMW M cars.
    Finally, a professional reviewer who kind of gets it.

    This is supposed to be a track car not a fast straight line car. I would like to see it run on a couple of well known tracks and see how it stacks up against the Cayman R. Has it been on the ring yet?

    lol, so the 1M is one thing, but noone else caught on to the fact that the MPH stayed the same while the ET changed? Meaning what ive been saying this whole time, that trap speed is dependent on the back half, not the front half Click here to enlarge

    What BS? It's InsideLine's article and I don't hate the 1M. I pointed out Insideline's own quote which I agree with.

    How are you talking about a BimmerBoost review when there is no BimmerBoost review?

    You mean the preview that states the automotive world has been heaping praise on it? True. You mean that many forgot what an M car is about it? True. Insideline didn't though and mentioned it. True.

    You trying way too hard to be negative and are not even doing so well.

    Cayman R will be much faster.

    It isn't a straightline car, but remember Autocar stated the 1M tears the Cayman R to shreds in a straightline, complete BS.

    Don't call me negative when you are the one being so negative about the 1M

    I think the rants about it not being a true M car has to stop. All that BS about it not fallowing tradition and history. I don't see you trowing the same kind of comments about the e92 M3 even though it is a V8 when it should be a inline 6. That to be is more of a blasphemy that what has been done with the 1M

    I am critical of the 1M and rightfully so. Still, I didn't put up any negative review I quoted a line from InsideLine's review that I think they got right and others have missed. If you have a problem with that, take it up with Insideline.

    You are entitled to your opinion. I think more of the automotive press should have the courage to stand up and say it isn't a real M car and that it doesn't offer the response M cars used to offer.

    Your argument about the inline-6 makes no sense considering the M3 evolved from a 4 cylinder. Also considering that BMW raced an M3 with a V8 back in 2001. Check your history...

    It was a review of a review.

    What response? It has been showed to have equal performance to the M3 and in some cases even better.

    Right right, history. You are not making any sense you are just mad at the 1M without reason.

    Well I agree 13.0 isn't great. If I can beat it with my 4400lbs 550i it ain't fast. 8:12 isn't anything crazy fast either but that's probably the wrong track for that little car to shine. Maybe something with tighter turns and less overall speed will show off it's handling.

    You don't get it do you? Read Insideline's quote.

    I'm making total sense you said the M3 should have an I6 and by not doing so is blasphemous. Well, it isn't because the M3 STARTED with a 4 cylinder, as in, know your M history. Additionally, the M3 went to a V8 based on racing and was racing with one as early as 2001. You also seemed to forget BMW produced V8 M3's with the E46, M3 GTR. Makes perfect sense to me, not sure why you missed you all that.

    It's a nice track car but the criticism aimed at it is fair.

    I was happy to finally see a review that mentioned some aspects I have been bringing up.

    I think I know way more about racing history than you. It has nothing to do with production cars it had to do with them needing to have a V8 to race in that classification and the rules stated that the cars had to have a production car of the car being raced. Thats why BMW made a limited production of that car for the street the M3 GTR

    If you know so much about racing history you would have known BMW had a V8 in the E46 so moving to one in the E92 was not a shock to anyone since it had already been done. Also, you would have known E30's raced around with 4 cylinders so there was no precedent set for inline 6's only in M3's which means your statement made no sense. The precedent set was that of a naturally aspirated high revving engine so the blasphemy you are referring to is breaking from that tradition hence the cirticism of the 1M as well as the quote by InsideLine which they got completely correct.

    Thanks so I am not crazy. Long time ago I saw a V8 E46 M3. I mentioned this and everyone called me an idiot and I was holding my ground but then said ya I must be wrong. It was in Glendale, CA and it was yellow. It said V8 on the side maybe around 2002 or 2003 (long time ago).

    It was never sold in the US, might have been a custom swap.

    Good video, this guy actually said some valid points with the car and It really looks sharp. Even tho its still the N54, I guess its REALLY that good of an engine with some HPFP problems that have kinda been solved.
