BMW 1 Series M Coupe review - Auto Express

Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/266848/bmw_1series_m_coup.html#ixzz1Mt2wVTdl Auto Express gets behind the wheel of BMW's latest M Power car, the 1 Series M Coupe. Powered by a 335bhp 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine - a tweaked version of the unit from the 135i, it is capable of 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 155mph. Could this be the best M car since the original E30 M3? The new 1-Series M Coupé is about as back-to-basics as BMW's performance models get these days -- it's a simple formula of a powerful engine, a manual gearbox and rear-wheel drive. Factor in compact dimensions and you should have a spiritual successor to one of the most-loved M cars in history. But is it any good on UK roads? Auto Express took the wheel to find out.

BMW 1 Series Coupe review - What Car?
Read the What Car? BMW 1 Series Coupe review http://bit.ly/xXfZ40 Good feedback through the steering means the BMW 1 Series Coupe is fun to drive. Diesel versions are frugal and the driving position is spot-on. It's not the sleekest of coupes and some of the petrol engines need to be worked surprisingly hard. M Sport models have a firm ride and some interior trim isn't up to usual BMW standards Become our friend on Facebook: http://on.fb.me/dKOpu8 Follow us on Twitter: http://bit.ly/x3WZtV What Car? is the UK's biggest car-buying brand and has been helping Britain's car buyers make purchasing decisions for over 40 years.

Audi RS3 Sportback v BMW 1 Series M Coupe Drag Race - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/grouptests/269563/bmw_1m_coupe_vs_r ivals.html Pocket rockets from BMW and Audi go head-to-head in a drag race shoot out over the quarter mile. But which is fastest? The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two things in common... Power. Each offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of torque. However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five cylinder turbo drives all four wheels via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW on the other hand has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo. And it sends all its power to the rear wheels via a good ol' fashioned six-speed manual.
