BMW 1 Series, Mmmmmm

BMW, or more specifically, BMW M, recently previewed the 1 Series M in Singapore.

The 1-Series M must be one of the most eagerly-anticipated BMWs of all time. For years, there has been constant rumours and speculation going around as to whether BMW will actually make an M version of its small car, and even debate on what it would be called, since M1 was the name given to BMW's supercar of the 1980s.

Now that it's finally here, BMW M fans can definitely rejoice.

While us Singaporeans don't get to drive the 1-Series M yet, and therefore make judgement for ourselves, the foreign motoring press seem to be all praises for the baby M car. Some have even likened it to the original BMW M3, which has to be some honour, to be compared to the car that started the entire M revolution.

The car certainly has a passive aggressive look to it. Like a wrestler in a suit, it looks subtle enough, yet you know that it has the ability to tear your head off should you choose to provoke it.

Just 20 units will be allocated to Singapore, out of the 2500 in total that BMW will make, which guarantees exclusivity for any M collector. One customer at the launch event was so impressed that he ordered one on the spot, making him the first to own the 1 Series M in Singapore.

Like all M cars in Singapore, the 1 Series M is available for order at the world's first exclusive M dealership, Munich Automobiles.

Is there anything here that I couldn't read on BMW's website? Is this site just rehashing manufacturers' press realeases and handing it back to us? If the author had an opinion that would be nice. An opinion based on being within 1,000 miles of the car would be even better.
