Awesome.

I would love a 1M. Dont know which colour I would choose as white and valencia orange look great.

Im interested to know if by remapping it will have any effect on your warranty as its a new car?

Beautiful car, bet you are loving it biggrin

My dream is to have an individual spec Hellrot 1M

Oh I know it is hatefully expensive but might I suggest an Akrapovic exhaust for it

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3ST54Dt_XsY has to be one of the nicest sounding turbo cars I've ever heard when running that system.

I really dislike the 1 Series but I love the 1M, go figure! It looks fantastic in white, this is definitely a car with a high fun factor!

Thanks smile

Talking of cars with high fun factors, I can't wait to see your finished Fiesta project. What a beast that's going to be biggrin

Fitted some blacklines to my 1M yesterday, along with some pressed plates and a black M badge. They're not the best photos due to poor light, but they give you an idea.

I've included a before shot to show the subtle differences smile

Thanks for the kind comments.

There are a few more bits to sort out and then it'll be finished. My BMW Performance steering wheel should turn up soon and I'm in the process of ordering the BMWP Carbon lip spoiler. Then the wheels will be done (just a colour change) along with a few subtle touches elsewhere.

I'll post some photos when it's done biggrin

What a great car. Only this morning have I read the evo end-of-term review and it is outstanding with the only exception being the usual bmw-m-gripe of braking.

I adore the subtly darkened m-badge. Very, very nice. Personally I would have de-badged it, but I can appreciate what you've done in just the same light.

One word of guidance. I live in the same area as that BMW dealership and recently chose a set of backroads to get into the same town. As I emerged near to the A12 junction closest to that BMW Dealership, two one-series came hooning off of the A12, at near race-speed and proceeded to literally thrash the living day lights out of both cars in a race to the dealership. They both then slowly pulled in.

Never, ever, will I allow a main dealer to service my vehicle.
