Ok ok, so earlier I had a little bit of a spat with BMW about their 1 series. The undersized coupe just didn't have enough chutzpah to deem it a worthy consideration. Having a 36k+ price tag wasn't any help either.
Well, I may have changed my mind about the littlest bimmer. BMW just released official specs on the BMW 1 Series M Coupe and it seems they got the memo. The M Coupe now is sporting 335 hp and 332 pound-feet of torque which, although not a monumental boost from the 1 Series' previous max of 300 hp and 300 lb-ft, is a welcome addition. There is an overboost function that during hard runs will provide an additional 37 pound-feet when called on, so that's nice.
I can't wait to give y'all a full review. Now if only BMW would return my calls...
