Newb from Arlington,Tx

Hey everyone. I've owned a lot of different 3 Series BMW's, the only one i've kept for a long time is my BMW 318ti (love it) - my daily driver is a 2010 335i that I've had some work to...

But now I'm ready again to trade up... thinking about selling both cars and getting a newer M3... or one of the new 1M...

I think the 1M is more to my liking but I've always owned a 3 series..

Thoughts?

You are going to have a really hard time finding a 1M, that isn't priced over sticker. Both are great cars with very different approached to the speed game. The M3 is more precise compared to the hooligan 1M (shorted wheelbase, more torque).

Thanks. Yeah, I've been doing some looking for the 1M and they are hard to find. I'm just thinking that I like the smaller, lighter, more precise handling from the 1 over the new big/bloated 3...

But then again.. I've driven the 2011 M3 and goodness it's got good power!

Somehow my 2011 E90 M3 has never felt "bloated". I can say that even though my other car is an S2000. You don't get much less bloated than that.
