e46 is classic, but I do like the look of the 1M, but definitely not for me...

E46M has much better proportions in my opinion. That said, the 1M looks infinitely better in AW or BSM. Hate that orange color.

I'd take the e46m3, it looks more natural, flowing - the lines are much nicer.

If you put some CSL wheels on that e46m3, it would be game over for the 1M.

Not into those colours to be honest but worse than that the 1M looks awful to me.

The blue is nice, the red/orange is pretty bad.

Never been a fan of the 1 series either. I have to respect it for what it is and the fact it blows its competition out of the water in its size category because of the refinement it has from the already established 1 series (interior/backseat/trunk space etc) but still...

I'd rather have the E46 hands down, not a fan of the 1 series at all.
