Re: Bimmer or mercedes??

M1 was a great car, well ahead of its time if very expensive.

It was never going to compete with Lambos and ferraris of the era and was always pretty doomed, but if it wasnt for this car there would be no M series cars, they are like hens teeth now

The only BMW i will always want to own is the 8 series, still looks as good as ever today, stuff your M3's and 5's, you will never be as cool as an 8 series driver

I have voted for BM as well, we have just taken delivery of brand new Mercedes trucks at work to replace the volvo fleet. No one is happy so they must be turd, just like the build quality of todays cars

but all the others are just dull road cars which have been pumped with steroids to make them interesting. M1 was designed as an interesting car, so looks good.

.About the M1 , I'm just not a fun of attention grabbers and that's the only reason I did never like it.You're very much right about it's role in the M division + BMW's appeal as a make
