CarReview's opinion of the 2011 BMW 1 Series M

  • M heritage
  • Powerful and smooth revving 3.0 liter Twinpower Turbo inline 6
  • Unmistakable styling with an aggressive edge
  • Rubbery shifter diminishes that precise feel of the car
  • Minor exhaust drone
  • Some minor body aesthetic details

Verdict: The competition is tight and it often comes down to test driving these more than once, side by side. These market leaders are all making such good quality cars, it makes the final decision that much more difficult. And even consider that you can get equal or better performance out of less expensive Japanese counter parts these days, although those typically require a little massaging of the chassis and motor to truly compare. But nevertheless, they should be considered when looking for a performance sedan.

But as I also mentioned, BMW M Sport is an icon. The heritage is unmistakable. I believe in their design and technology principles and I have faith in the brand’s history. I am an enthusiast who can honestly say that I love cars and the emotional experience of driving, whether that is a purely utilitarian SUV to a bahn storming European hot sedan. I love it. If you’re an enthusiast, a driver, you will love it too.
