Autoblog publishes an article on the BMW 1 Series M Coupe and how the car values has appreciated since its launch in 2011. The 1M is considered by many a car worth investing into, and the latest article comes to verify that claim.

The “baby-M” went on sale in 2011 and was sold out before it even reached out the local dealerships. Listed at $47,030, the 1M sold either for sticker price or significantly higher, reports at the time mentioned some dealers charging a premium of $10,000. There were 740 units sold in the United States with some of those units being reported totaled after unfortunate accidents.


At the time we did a market research and found several BMW 1M models on various car listings websites varying from $60,000 to $70,000 (with a pretty base configuration). Autoblog tracked down about 20 cars currently on sale and found an average asking price of $61,670 with an average mileage of about 11,600. That’s more than $15,500 over the MSRP when new, or an appreciation of around $5k per year.

The cheapest 1M they found was priced at $55,500 with 14,000 miles. At the high-end we have an 1M Coupe priced at $65,991 with just 8,800 miles. The Black Book also shows the 1M valued at $60,000 for an “Extra Clean” car.


Now it’s time to take out our 1M from the garage and take it for a spin.
