I ran into a bunch of happy Canadians today. They took delivery of a 1M, the first to be delivered to a North American customer evidently. They got the royal treatment from M, even a meeting with engineers to discuss the car. BMW evidently treated this as a very special event.
Needless to say there were smiles all around, but it has to be asked, why were they in the BMW Museum when they could have been tearing up the autobahn? (Just kidding, they were very gracious to another North American and they did have a chance to explore the car’s capabilities, of which they were quite impressed.)
First US European Deliveries will begin on May 16th, same day the 1M will be officially released in the US. Stay tuned in early May for an exclusive test drive of the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe.
