My favourite machine! BMW 1M.

Nov 06, 2019,14:16 PM

Yes I love my Reverso and I love my 2 Leica cameras but my absolute favourite machine is my BMW 1M. Limited production and it gives me joy every time I drive it!! 739 were sold in the US market. Mine is #274.

It’s our only family car, daily car, winter car, weekend car, everything car....

But how do you get it out of that parking spot?

BTW, did you see the newly announced M2 CS?

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : November 6th, 2019-14:19

Yeah saw it. I like the M2 but don’t love it.

BMW ditched hydraulic steering and added a lot of tech to their newer cars. The 1M was sort of a last hurrah to the more analog years. Manual transmission ONLYX. No significant tech except for a throttle amplifying button. Mechanical LSD. Fixed suspension... 

My biggest disappointment is the weight

They just keep getting fatter and fatter

The state of modern cars...too heavy!

This is why I love smaller and lighter cars. The sensations aren’t lost! The 1M isn’t light but still lighter than what came after.

Thank you sir!!! [nt]

The Valencia Orange 1M! Test drove one and wanted to bring it home, but couldn’t convince the wife for another 2 door in the garage. Sigh 😔 Very few were brought into Malaysia and now very seldom seen on the road. Enjoy your ride 🥂 This is mine, an S54 st...  

Ah the E46 M3 is an obvious classic!

Enjoy it in good health my friend!!! One of the cars the 1M is inspired by for sure

Only car! A man after my own heart...

But tell me: how well does it handle the winter snow? I assume you put a set of snow tires on it in winter... and how's the handling/road noise on the snows when you're driving on regular pavement? (If you can't tell, I also live in snowy climes, and woul... 

I like singular vision and a 1 car fleet is my ethos!! Thank you

The 1M does great in the winter!! I run Michelin X-ice3 snow tires all around and have never felt unsafe or insecure on them. I should mention that for years I drove Audis with quattro and was a little nervous about switching to a high performance RWD car... 

super nice driver's car!

Good thing is, you USE it under all circumstances - that's what it is made for. Thumbs up for that! Greetings, Ron

Thank you Ron!! That’s the only way I buy things.

Some people collect objects I buy things to use them and make them part of my life! Thank you!

Totally agree

I own also 1 car. It are the laws in my country, why i want only one car. To many administration. And i like to experience every bold in my car by driving my car many years. If the laws in my country where free, and no government bu...s..t , i think i had... 

Interesting. My ethos was that I bought my “dream car”
