Most reviews of the 1M coupe are the result of a short test drive. Perhaps more telling however, are the longer term reviews, such as Autoblog’s just published review. Their latest 1M review comes from a week’s worth of evaluation. Their 1M experience may have spanned a longer period than most test drives, but their words for the car are just as effusive. Here’s some of their notable praise for 1M coupe.

1addicts member and race car driver Advevo setup a showdown with a track prepped E46 M3 CSL this past weekend on the Nurburgring to show just what the 1M was made of when running live against the iconic M3 CSL. The results are impressive to say the least!

It was bound to happen, but we didn’t expect to see a 1M accident this soon. This 1 of only 80 BMW 1M coupes total (and first delivered in country) for the Korean market was recently involved in an accident. What’s worse is the car belongs to 1addicts member eztonyc.

The damage will require some moderate bodywork, but it hopefully does not have any substantial frame damage. With worldwide 1M production numbers being only in the low thousands at most, it would be a real shame … CONTINUED

1addicts member and photographer TOMiRRi has an affinity for shooting the BMW 1M apparently as this is his second photo shoot (he previously photographed a black 1M). He only needs to shoot an Alpine White 1M in order to complete the trifecta, and we look forward to seeing that.

These are the results many have been waiting for. Sportauto has just released their much anticipated Supertest of the 1-series M Coupe. The outcome: An amazing Hockenheim track time, a solid result at the Nürburgring and (mostly) praises from the reviewer, Horst von Saurma.

An earlier Sportauto review already mentioned the 1M’s amazing performance at Hockenheim of 1:14.1, which is not only 7 tenths of a second faster than the Audi TT-RS and 1.3 seconds faster than the RS 3 but also faster than any E9x M3 … CONTINUED

The TechTec BMW 1M coupe with its Akrapovic prototype exhaust, KW suspension, and 443hp, took 3rd place in the competition, behind a Lotus Exige and supercharged E46 M3.

Shortly after BMW released the 1M, it debuted the 1M SafetyCar for the MotoGP series. Besides a unique paintscheme and some CF addons, the car was also lowered a good amount and sporting KW stickers. The writing was on the wall and we all knew that it was only a matter of time before a coilover kit was released for the 1M.

The coilovers are a Variant 3 system of KW’s kit, which means that the coilovers are both rebound (infinitely) and compression (14) adjustable along with … CONTINUED

Autobild recently conducted another track comparison review involving the BMW 1-series M Coupe. Stepping into the ring this time were the Audi RS 3 and the Ford Focus RS 500. The results? The BMW 1M wins, with the Audi finishing second and the Ford last. As seen in the test data below, the Audi with its AWD Quattro is the quickest in a straight line. The Audi also offers the most compliant ride according to Autobild. However, once the cars hit the track, the tide … CONTINUED

BMW Driving Instructor Donnie Isley provides an account of time recently spent breaking in a 1M on the twisty mountain roads of western North Carolina. His enthusiasm is infectious and you can’t help but feel some of his 1M experience through his words. All in all, the 1M impressed him on these roads even more so than at the Willow Springs race track where he chaperoned the BMW 1M press drives last month.
