According to Autoweek, BMW says there will be no M verison of the 1er coupe.
While disappointing, it is no surprise. I think the 135 will already encroach on sales of the M3 among enthusiasts, since it has the tunable twin turbo motor. An M version of the car, with the motor from the E46 M3 and the M differential would be very nimble, light and yet powerful. I might very well forgo the M3 for the M1 if it was made available.
