    THERE WILL NOT BE AN M1 - FOR THE LAST TIME

    Pictures have been circulating around (which they stole, by the way) which you guys may have seen. These pictures to be exact:

    These are pictures of what will be a 135is, with a tweaked N54 or N55 as already stated. This is now the second time we are saying this same damn thing.

    Maybe we should create a fake BMW insider as well?

    You mean a 135is? I also don't think there will be a M1 considering there has been no motor developed for it, which was the case for every M before. BMW is changing the N55 though, so far all I know is it is using two turbochargers instead of one twin-scroll, and maybe if some headwork is done to put the torque at the top (where it should be) and increase maximum rpm it may be enough for them to get away with calling it an M.

    Motor or no motor, not everything needs an M badge and BMW has said no M1. 135is is what makes sense...

    They did... they officially said there would not be an M1. Will they go back on it? Perhaps, they have gone back on a few things recently.
