Moving on from the GTR

Well after 2 years of ownership I have decided to move on a try something else.

I was never sure where to go after the GTR but I have a soft spot for the BMW 1M coupe so decided to go back to an M car.

I put a deposit down yesterday so all being well I should be in 1M within 2 weeks or so.

Cracking car the 1M coupe.

Looks a bit odd to me, but goes like stink.

Probably the most tail happy M car for a long time so take care!

Great choice; will be very interested to get your thoughts after a few weeks driving as I do like the 1M.

DMS do a remap as well - takes the torque figure close to a standard GTR with less weight!!! I would consider one after the GTR :-)

We have a club member who swings both ways; I'm sure he will be along shortly to tell us the relative merits

Well done mate. A cracking car to choose and a good change from the GTR. What colour did you decide to go for?

Awesome car, great choice

Can you just order these through BMW, I thought they were a limited build car?

Is the M car a forward progression from the GTR?
(Just curious, as that's not my perception)
