My opinion as well.

Last 'true' M car was the E30 M3, although I conceede that the E46 M3 CSL was a true M car in every sense apart from the fact that they didn't actually have to build it for homolgation purposes.

The 1M is in the closet BMW have come to making a true M car since the E46 CSL, but again, without a specific need to from a motorsport point of view.
