Congrats on the car. Let us know how it holds on the track.

Ps. It is NOT a limited edition car...

Difference between 335is & M3 is $7k

M3 to M6 was $40k



The 1M also shares major parts with the M3 while the M5/M6 did not.

It does not get a little "iffy" at all. The fact is people have been complaining about the dimensions, weight gain, and how the current M3 has lost the "fun" factor that previous generation M3's had. The 1M has sort of been a response to that and the previous generation M3's, therefore it would be natural to compare the two. Also the 1 series M coupe has 6 cylinders, something more similar to most M3's. The 8 seems like it may be a one and only generation.

The whole F/I thing also presents a comparison as the new M3 will likely be an F/I car as well.

I think the idea/introduction of the 1 series M coupe was surrounded by the cons that people (and people freaking about about the engine) can think of so it is nice to see the benefits of a car that will be more likely suited to daily driving and is sporting the M badge.

Congratulations on the purchase! As I've said before, if I didn't need my four doors, I would have gotten the 1 M, no question...

Honestly, the 1M looks a lot better than the regular 1 series, but it still is not a looker (judging from pics and video). The M3 is a gorgeous, sleek GT compared to the boxy M1.

It is however the best track car BMW makes now imho. Sorta beat the M3 in that regard. If I was looking for a dedicated track car from BMW, I would get the 1M without a doubt. (judging from poster's/mag-reviewer's experiences)
