Yet another review of the new 2011 BMW 1 Series M Coupe. This time, the latest video review comes from the UK where Auto Express folks took the 1M for an extensive ride. Before jumping into the video, here are some of their findings:
“Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW’s performance models get these days – it’s a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive.
Turn off the ESP and you can indulge in tail slides, although firm but compliant damping means it’s easy to cover ground at pace, revelling in the meaty steering and limited body roll. With its compact dimensions, this is a sports car that’s nimble and quick to respond to steering, brake or throttle inputs – and as a result, it’s a real pleasure to drive at any speed.
It should also be comfortable and easy to live with. The best M car for a long time? Undoubtedly.”
