If you watch Dr Z introduce the 1M he says that he thinks most will be ordered bare bones. He was wrong and he is gone. Now BMW will build not what a few want but what the masses actually buy. If you want a low frills lightweight rear drive car scion and Subaru are cleaning up with their FR-S / BRZ. So much for Zeglers vision of bringing a younger crowd to to the M line.

He is still my hero though... He tried his best and I thank him for my 1M which as I said before will probably be the coolest old-school M car for me.
Nacho, I know the loaded v stripped is a pet peeve of yours but honestly, the 1M is not a great example. Loaded or stripped, our 1Ms are NOT light cars by any stretch of the imagination.
The 1 series M is the most badass, coolest, sickest BMW to debut since the 1988 M3. The E30 M3 finally has a successor. Please welcome the stupidly fast, wickedly tempered, awkwardly named, possibly perfect little son of a benchmark - Automobile Magazine, August 2011
