Contrary to earlier reports of a 2,700 unit limit on the 1-series M Coupe, based on new info from insider Scott26, it now appears that BMW will build as many 1M coupes as demand dictates during its production run, which will end in the first quarter of 2012. Yesterday’s engine specs image shows a 3/11 date after the 1M coupe engine, which we believe may indicate the start of production as March 2011. If this is the case, the entire 1M coupe production run will span approximately one year.

Hi everyone. I was one of the three participants from the US and my reference for comparison is my 2008 135.

Let me start with some cliff notes for those of you who may not want to read the entire review. After this experience, and depending on how the 1M will be priced, Im looking at putting my 135 up for sale which I never thought I would do. I really do like my 135, but the 1M is on a whole different level.

Before this pre-drive event, I took out a 2008 E92 M3 6MT to get an idea how it would compare. The first thing I noticed compared to my 135, was … CONTINUED

I am the only Asian test driver of this event.

I have a Z4 23i & a X5 30xdrive. I have driven 135 convertible before.

The first impression was not so impressive because the real shape of the car was masked by the camouflage. But I noticed the back of the car was so wide. The sound of starting the engine was wonderful. The clutch is not extremely hard. The gear shift distance is short & precise. Easy to handle (this is my 1st time driving a left-hand drive MT car).
