In less than 48 hours from now we’ll be sitting in a production 1 Series M Coupé, getting to know it’s unique features and learning just how special M Division’s new entry-level model really is. Despite initial reservations when the M Coupé was first revealed, I’m really looking forward to seeing and touching it for myself.

We’ll be spending time photographing it, speaking with BMW personnel and getting to know every nook and cranny so that we can convey as much about it to you as possible. What we’d like to hear from you in the next 40 hours and 20 minutes (and counting) is, well whatever it is that you’d like us to discover. Think of us as your very own secret agent.

Details of the 1 Series M Coupé will be held under embargo until Thursday at 11:59pm, so we can’t tweet live from the photoshoot, but I promise to be on Twitter for an hour or two after embargo to answer any further questions.

To remind you about what we know so far about the specification of the 1 Series M Coupé, take a look at our previous article – “BMW 1 Series M Coupe – Interview with Albert Biermann” in which Biermann talks about the engine’s power output, the car’s unladen weight and what we can expect in terms of its driving dynamics.

Other articles worth taking a look at for reference include;

  1. BMW’s 1 Series M Coupe visits Paris [6-10-2010]
  2. BMW partially reveals the new 1 Series M Coupe [27-08-2010]
  3. New in-car video of BMW’s 1 Series M Coupe. But is it an M car? [12-07-2010]
  4. BMW previews the 1 Series M Coupé [12-07-2010]

Exciting eh?

Whatever you may think of the 1 Series, this M Coupé is something really rather special, unfortunately for UK customers there are only 450 cars currently due to being imported, so if you’ve been sitting on the fence trying to decide whether to buy one… now might be a good time to make your mind up, and even more reason to tell us what you’d like to know.
