VEHICLE STORY

Only 50 examples of the 1M made their way to Taiwan. There are only 47 left as 3 are known to have been totaled. I have owned this car since mid-February 2015. I wasn't even in the market for a new car but I drove past a used car dealer with a fully kitted out Stage 3 1M sitting in the front, I had to have a look. The price was a bit too steep for me so I started looking, though only semi-seriously, when I had a chance conversation with my mechanic and he mentioned he knew a guy who was looking to pass on his 1M. Calls were made and the next day the car was brought over to my mechanics for me to take a look, a test drive, and a quick inspection. Everything was perfect and car was bought on the spot. Initially I planned on keeping it in the garage and driving it on weekends, 6 months on and I've put over 10,000km (~6,200mi) on the clock as my daily driver. The BMW 1M is truly sublime.

I travel to Taipei about 4x a year, and I spotted a 1M. Didn't have a chance to take a pic, but maybe it was yours!

Nice story. Never knew the number of units in Taiwan. Enjoy!
