      Great enthusiastic video with some great narrating and drifting shots!  Thanks for burning up your tires for our enjoyment!

      After driving an M2, I decided it was just too harsh for my older butt. Earlier, I looked at the 1M, but they are wildly priced now and could have engine woes...especially now out of warranty. So, I saved a bit of money and bought a CPO M240i. A bit softer, but its B58 engine may prove more reliable with the "closed deck" structure and upgraded direct injection. Plus, I like the multiple suspension settings. Now, I just need to save up for a locking diff upgrade.

      They should call the 1M just the M. It deserves it.

      @Marcelo Oofen Wonken No problem. I think BMW will continue to sell as many as they can which will make them depreciate just like the current M2 Competiton. 1M apparently ceased production to make room for the X1 and because of 2012 emissions requirements:

      @Marcelo Oofen WonkenYes North America got very few. Even the UK only received 450. Source:

      @touringteg are you sure about those figures? The worldwide release was 6300 and some change up from the intended 2700

      I'd have imagined more would have made it to US, though I may be totally wrong

      I just wish the BBC would let Chris be Chris on top gear, instead of the angry little comedy man persona, they try to portray him dredding top gear with Flintoff and McGinnis because it could end up an awful cheese fest...🤞🏼it doesn't
