US BMW dealers have received the official 1 series M coupe product bulletin, signaling the start of communications regarding the 1m coupe. The bulletin summarizes general facts of the 1M coupe as well as laying out specific US production and pricing info.
The 1M will be limited production after all and production begins in 2011. BMW’s Order Bank will be open as of December 20th, meaning the official option and package lists will be listed (and orders possibly being submitted on this date).
There has been some confusion as to how the 1M coupe’s M-Drive and MDM are triggered, and whether that changes with iDrive or not. We have put together a primer on how they work exactly and what the buttons accomplish respectively.
Unlike the M3 and M5/6, the M-button on the steering wheel (red circle) is not programmable. It’s always set to trigger a sharper throttle response mapping (comparable to the POWER button in the E9x M3), and nothing else.
The M Dynamic Mode aka MDM cannot be programmed … CONTINUED

The press release and official photos will come tomorrow (Thursday) at 6PM EST so stay tuned! This also provides the first official look at the 1-series LCI facelift, with its revised headlights (with eyebrows) and light bar tail lights.
It appears that the 1M coupe’s official internet reveal date has been moved up – to this Thursday, December 9 @ 6PM EST! Mark your calendars to tune in at that time to witness the 1M fully revealed for the first time.
The M-power.com closed room has now been updated with the video of the newest partial unveiling of the 1M coupe, with a clearer look of the body side crease than the photos from earlier today.
Andy Priaulx and Dr. Segler pushed the ball forward another step this past Sunday December 5, with an additional piece of the BMW 1 Series M Coupé unveiled to the public at the Autosport Awards in The Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London UK.
Autoblog has posted its first drive impressions of the 1-series M Coupe prototype from their test drive in Germany. Not much new info is divulged, but the general reaction is a positive one.
A 1addicts member reports that the official release/reveal date of the hotly anticipated production 1 Series M Coupe will be December 12, 2010! This date was later corroborated by BMW insider Scott. Be sure to tune 12/12/10 for the reveal.
The next partial reveal of the 1M coupe is imminent and its full unveil is next month, but it continues being evaluated. Just spotted in Munich is this black 1M coupe prototype showing covered M3 mirrors and new LCI headlights/tail lights. The wheels (Style 270M M3 winter wheels) have likely been fitted for some better cold weather traction. These photos also highlight the aggressively flared fenders of the 1 series M coupe.
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 … CONTINUED

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 … CONTINUED
