BMW’s 1 Series M Coupe long term review

We love the BMW 1 Series M Coupe. We genuinely love the attitude it has that makes it totally geared up towards fun, without sacrificing practicality too much.

That’s just the thing more people are wondering about. Is the performance and fun factor a little too much for everyday life and work situations?

With this new review from Autocar, the focus falls on precisely that situation. How’s the BMW 1 Series M Coupe to live with?

After all, having some fun with a stripper for a few minutes/hours is quite fun but living with her can be quite the enormous problem.

Or can it? The guys over at Autocar, particularly Mr. Sutcliffe (the reviewer) who wasn’t a big fan to begin with, seems to be impressed with its presence:

For all its craziness and fun attitude the BMW 1 Series M Coupe doesn’t make you hate it just like most cars of its type do after a while.

It seems to have pulled off quite the contrary and become even more fun for more of the time instead of runining the whole experience.

The only complaints they’ve made were the rather uncomfortable ride, a problem with the seats and the obvious nature of the paint.

The seat’s memory and the “fault” with them is that they’re meant to help people in the back in certain conditions. The paint is orange, obviously that’s not what you order the car in if you don’t want to stand out.

We’ll let them have the ride argument, it can get choppy and that can be a problem for many people. But that said there’s a lot more uncomfortable cars out there.
