In the last episode we showcased Faisel’s prime example of a 2002. Before that we kicked of his collection series with his 3 325iS’s and all in immaculate condition too.

 

To most of the Beemer folk, an iS is a very desirable car to own, and those that are in the condition that Faisel’s are in, are even more desired.

 

To the newer generation, a car that in today’s era, is as anticipated as the original 325iS is the E82 1M. And yes, Faisel has one of those too.

 With limited quantities world-wide and the current 1-series coupe being replaced by the 2-series, this model will become a great collector’s piece in time to come. It will sit in the same bracket as the E46 M3 CSL as one of BMWs ultimate creations.

 

I remember when seeing one after it was just launched I was with a friend and she had seen a  1M for the first time, she pinched my arm and pointed to the 1M yelling “That is sexy as f#$%...!!!”

Faisel’s example is pretty much standard just as one would have it and it is in the best colour of the 3 that the car-maker offered them in.

The 1M might just be a handsome investment too if one can maintain its originality because with the change in series range of the coupe (with the new being called 2-series) this might just be the last and only 1M that BMW creates. Only time will tell.

This E82 1M is a fitting addition to Faisel’s collection because of the BMW fan and fundi that he is.
