  • Published on Apr 27, 2017
    I think the BMW 1 Series M is the single greatest BMW ever made -- and I reviewed this one to show you exactly why.

    My super clean low mileage 128i coupe that I just bought was totaled one month after buying it, when some idiot rear ended me.
    I'm in the market for another. The turbo power is nice, but the normal aspirated 6 in the 128i moves along nicely.
    In some ways it made me think that it was the car my Alfa GTV6 should have been.

    I can halfway agree with the “ best bmw ever made “ the e36 M3 were great.
    I love the 1M, hell the 1 series chassis altogether is a great looking car.
    I think it’s funny how bmw built this car, they practically had all the N54 parts laying around trying to build a new car and they just shoved them in the one series chassis and called it an1M.

    I hear you knock cars for having all these subpar qualities that you admire on this piece of trash. You are such a contradictive hypocrite it's insane. Rethink your life ...and get a new hair style.

    The M1 is overpriced! Buy it for $60,000 ! That is a joke! For that price M2,M3, or M4 !

      HiPlains1 I got your point as a collectable!

    • HiPlains1
      HiPlains1 22 days ago

      @Edward Wild a modded car. Still only 700 genuine M1's built by BMW. Not sure what your point is? You car will not have the same value as a collectible. Like I said, supply and demand will dictate price. If somebody is willing to pay 60K then that's its value. And that's no joke.

    • Edward Wild
      Edward Wild 22 days ago

      HiPlains1 True with the car, but i bought 135i bought M1, front bumper , rear and fenders ! I put a doc single turbo 64 good for 800+ for less than $60,000

    • HiPlains1
      HiPlains1 24 days ago

      They only made 700 of these. Many want the M package in the smaller/lighter chassis. And like Doug said in the vid, BMW does not build that type of car. Except in 2011 for a very limited run. And its true, I hear it from BMW fans all the time that they don't make a smaller/lighter sports car anymore. 60K is supply and demand.

    I agree this is probably the greatest BMW ever made, possibly the greatest rwd car ever made. I remember first reading about this from BMW and I remember thinking this is going to be special. The E82 is just the perfect size for that 335 straight six combined with a rwd terrain. Just a perfect combo. Man I want one. Closest I can get to one is the E82 135i M. But those are becoming rare too.

    My 2013 128i has (approximately) the same "balance and poise" as the 1M (it has simpler suspension, but the same 50:50 weight distribution, and the same engine, sans the TCs and ~100 hp, of course). I got my 128i without ANY add-ons, except 18" wheels, metallic paint and leather seats,. It doesn't even have iDrive! I believe that my minimalist version of this 1-series car is very similar to the original M3, in size, power and capabilities, and possibly the purest, cleanest BMW of them all. I am thinking that if my fortunes improve, I might get one of these rare 1Ms, but then I think, I like my little Bimmer just fine. Why bother?

    This car is valued at 70,000 and it’s 8 years old. Lmfao Doug hyped this car up

    • Diogo Gonçalves
      Diogo Gonçalves Month ago

      That's wrong. The car isn't hyped, it's absolutely amazing. Rear wheel drive, 50/50 weight, only manual, simple as hell interior and exterior... BMW wasn't even expecting this outcome, so obviously the price is high but 100% due to the car.

  • Joel Ley

    I 100% agree. The best BMWs were the mechanical ones, regardless of the horse power. I have and love the BMW E34 525i. It's only a 2.5L inline 6 but the mid- range acceloration is amazing, it handles like a roller skate, and if you drive the M5 or Alpina versions they are off the chart. all that fun in a 20+ year old BMW. I would LOVE to see you review a 1980s BMW M6 or 635 CSI to get your take on the top of the line old school BMWs, when their motto was "the ultimate driving machine" and it was absolutely true. Thanks for the great reviews, Doug! Keep 'em coming.

  • Sebastián Demaría

    Agreed, the best BMW ever made, the true M spirit of the first M3 E30.

    Bought a alpine white 135i N54 Coupé a few days ago, with M-Package which includes carbon spoiler ect. This car is amazing and so much fun to drive. I had a 1999 Volvo S40 before. It's like day and night, lol. I think i will keep this 135i forever.

    It's so cute. I lol when I see a guy driving around in one of these tiny cars. Like the boxster, miata, mini, beetle. Except if it's a classic car like the fiat spyder or TR6 or 7 or 914 or even the m coupe.

    I’m sure it’s been mentioned elsewhere - but the M3 CSL is THE sleeping, stripped out, carbon fibre-clad M car. Then there’s the induction roar. Sadly the US didn’t get it though.
