A 1addicts member was lucky enough to prepare for his 1M delivery later this year by attending the BMW M Drive Tour on the Fontage Track in the south of France near BMW’s Miramas test track, courtesy of his gracious dealer. Many varieties of M were available for the tour including multiple 1M coupes, M3, X6M, etc. Check out his on track experience via videos and photos.
Our coverage from M Festival continues. BMW had an awesome lineup of cars at display during M Night, but besides the new M3 CRT and the new M5, there were also the M3 GT2 race car, an E46 M3 GTR and the E90 M3 Ring Taxi on display.
