They didn't "only manage to sell"... They capped allocation to the US to only 740 1M's. That car would have sold a ton more if they had an open production schedule. These cars were selling for 10-30k over sticker brand new and are still asking for that much on the used market.
Not sure which I would chose.This with ED pricing and a GT350 will be a wash (assuming you don't want tech or track packs). Both have about the same rear seat room... hmmmmm
I don't believe they are planning to limit production (build and sell what the market will take), so no chance. I also don't think we know what will happen to the 1M long term and if people will really care that much (history plays out), or if this car will hurt it. At some point a few years from now, possible ability to used M2 (higher performance, newer, similar car) for far less than a 1M will make it tough to continue.
Except that the 1M was, and still is, an amazing car made in extremely limited quantities. The e30 M3 is still coveted, despite every successor M3 being a far better performer.I don't see why the 1M would continue to hold value at this point with the M2 looming.
It would be a different story if the 1M had a unique drivetrain compared to it's successors. But, in both cars its 6cyl turbo w/ RWD.
If it was a bigger disparity like going from a high strung NA V8 like in the E90 M3 to the current Turbo 6 in the M3, maybe there would be reason for value. However, what would really be unique about the 1M now, aside from the low production count?
I agree it's a good car, but it doesn't really have any redeeming properties over the M2, considering just how close they are.Except that the 1M was, and still is, an amazing car made in extremely limited quantities. The e30 M3 is still coveted, despite every successor M3 being a far better performer.
That said, I do agree that the 1M is a unique proposition because it didn't have an M-developed engine, etc. Nonetheless, there are exactly 740 of them in the USA. If you figure that at least 40+ of them have already been totaled, deported, etc., there are likely only about 600-700 of them still in existence.
Compare that with other "super rare" BMW cars that command premiums, like the Z3 M Coupe, of which there are (IIRC) 2500+ examples in the USA.
The bottom line is that I think the 1M's status will continue as a BMW collector's darling car.
Personally, I loved the original 1-series. I liked the squat proportions, the bulldog face, etc. I find the 2-series bland looking by comparison. Also, the 135i and 1M had a fantastic hydraulic steering setup, gorgeous wheels/wheel arches, etc. There is plenty to love about the 1M. But I do agree that the M2 appears to be a much better car, overall, with a proper "M" engine.
Either something is off in my calculation or the M2 is a smoking deal relative to the M235i. For reference, a very well optioned out 328i w/ M-Sport package has an MSRP of $55,000.
Seems to be the consensus on BMW forums... people are questioning the value proposition of M235i and speculating that BMW will discontinue it or replace it with 235i (no M).MSRP vs MSRP, fully optioned out:
A difference of only $1,785. Either something is off in my calculation or the M2 is a smoking deal relative to the M235i. For reference, a very well optioned out 328i w/ M-Sport package has an MSRP of $55,000.
