BMW has released a video, details, and photos on the 1-series by M division, looks like it'll be called the "1M"

It's not going to be called an M1 because of the legendary M1 race car. It will just be called the M.

Ugh, the 1 Series is so wack. My disinterest in modern BMWs instantly turns to hating whenever I see all the cubicle-jockies drooling. They should never have put this new yuppiemobile anywhere near an E30

Either this or it will be completely awesome. I'm leaning more toward the former, though. I see far too many rich girls and 20-something wanna be guidos around town with them.

I'd have to hear more about the drivetrain, suspension, etc. but I'll hope for a nice driver's car but expect a fail.

I've heard a lot of negative about the 1 series in general when it comes to balance and how the power + the short wheelbase makes it -less- balanced then the rest of the sport coupes in the BMW stable. My assumption is that the M version will correct this, and while you will have a ton of low level management business douches finally able to afford a Bimmer with an M on it (which will lose it most of it's possible cred) it will still turn out to be a rather capable car. I'm interested in two things: price, and how much weight they can cut out of the current piggies with 1 badges.

Seems people either love or hate the 1 series. I think it's a great idea and an M version the "cherry on top."

To be frank, Acura has really got to step up their product offerings or the Honda faithful will be marching lock-step into the arms of BMW.

Not worth the money, IMO. Spend the exstra few grand a get a 3-series. The weight difference is not very big, the 3 has more features, more space, and IMO is a much better looking car.

I'm sure it will be a fun little car, but It will probably cost as much as a 335i.

The same twin turbo I6 as the 135i, probably boosting a a little more.

It's the same engine as the regular 335i, just with a different tune.

I see nothing special about this M, I see nothing special about the 1-series all together.

There really ins't. It's a smaller 3-series with less room and fewer features for similar money.

For the money, I don't see why one would be a new 1-series over a certified 3-series.
