Bargain of the Year?
From a car you'll probably never see much less drive to one you much more affordable than I imagined. I'm surprised there wasn't a bigger fuss out of Detroit, perhaps because everyone knew the specs for the BMW 1 Series M but the price announced is quite as aggressive as the car. $47000 base is not cheap but it's quite a good chunk of car for the money in my opinion.
What do you think? To me it seems like the best bargain since BMW stuffed the S54 in the Z3 coupe ten years ago!
Don't miss an interview with the new BMW US M Brand Freep over at Bimmerfile.com. You'll find out a lot of information about the philosophy behind the 1M.
