Without a doubt, BMW has hit the jackpot with the new 1M. The limited production numbers, the positive drive reviews and the back-to-roots angle, has made the new “baby-M” one of the most desirable BMWs in 2011.
In the U.S., initial production numbers were said to be around 600 units, but first allocations released to dealerships showed a lower number of 1Ms being produced. We learned from BMW that the production will ramp up in the upcoming months and the number of production slots for the U.S. may increase.
Initial reports show that dealerships are getting 1 to 2 units at the moment, and some of the stores are only getting them later this fall. Clearly, the high demand and the “hotness” of this car have created a shortage at the moment and U.S. buyers are struggling to find available units in their state, and sometimes, outside their area. This applies to BMWBLOG as well. Even though we are Chicago-based, we ended up going out of our “comfort zone”, all the way to New Jersey where JMK BMW secured a May production for us.
With this backstory in mind, we would like to use our reach in the BMW world and try to connect potential buyers with BMW dealerships that still have unsold 1M models.
The idea is simple.
If you are interested to buy an 1M, please leave a note in the comments section below, including the state and the timeframe when you would like to purchase the 1M. If you would like to have your information private, feel free to fill out the form below.
If you are reading this article, and many of you do, please indicate in the same comments section below if you have any units available and the city and state you’re located in. Same as above, if you would like this information to be private, fill out the form below.
Our goal is to simply connect the two parties and give back to the community; BMWBLOG does not benefit in any way from this and we have NOT receive any incentives from BMW dealerships. .
